Where Have All the Leadership Stocks Gone?

They are called Leadership Stocks for a reason. They lead the market up, and they lead it down.

Leadership stocks are those select group of stocks that are growing fast, everyone likes, are bought by Institutions and determine the direction and velocity of the market.

An interesting thing happens when you measure the Ratio of Leadership stocks to the Broad market stocks. A clear pattern develops showing when Leadership stocks are in retreat or expanding and outpacing the broad market.

When they are expanding in numbers and in positive territory, then the market is pulled up by the action of the Leaders. However, when they are contracting, then the market is dragged down by their retreating.

In today's chart, you can see the Leadership to Broad market ratios going back to the beginning of 2010. If you follow the vertical lines, you can see how the market's ups and downs track with what the Leadership Stock Ratio is doing.

Right now, the Leadership Stock Ratio is negative and down ... in fact, our Leadership Stock Ratio went negative on July 27th, and has remained negative since that time.
