Our US & WORLD RANK System measures the short- and long-term momentum of the 61 major US & World Indices and ranks them from the strongest to the weakest.


The results of the short-term RANK have been computed using a combination of one-day to one-month data, while the results of the long-term RANK have been computed using a combination of three-month to twelve-month data.


This list contains three groups of securities:

  1. In the first group, we included the most important US Index ETFs, such as SPY, QQQ, DIA, etc. along with more specialized Index ETFs, such as Mid- and Small-Cap ETFs, Growth and Value ETFs, etc.

  2. In the second group, we included some of the most important International ETFs. These refer to either individual countries, such as EWC (Canada), EWU (United Kingdom), or groups of countries, such as EFA (Developed Countries), EEM (Emerging Markets) etc.

The third group includes the eleven Sectors of the US Stock Market. As we said elsewhere, these Sector ETFs can be useful as “reference points” scattered throughout the list.
