DecisionPoint Chart Gallery

DecisionPoint Chart Gallery

The DecisionPoint Chart Gallery contains a collection of charts that help you determine the state of the current market. The charts contain many important market momentum, trend and sentiment indicators which can be used to better understand where the market may be headed next.

The DecisionPoint Chart Gallery is based on charts originally developed by Carl Swenlin and Erin Swenlin for their DecisionPoint market timing service. In a sense, the DP Chart Gallery can be thought of as “DecisionPoint's Greatest Hits!”

Free users can see the DP Chart Gallery charts associated with the S&P 500. StockCharts members can also see DP Chart Gallery charts for the Dow, the S&P 100 and the Nasdaq 100.

You can access the DP Chart Gallery via a link in the “Member Tools” area of Your Dashboard, as well as a link in the “Additional Tools & Reports” area of the Charts & Tools page.

Once you are viewing the DP Chart Gallery, you can simply scroll down to see all of the charts in the gallery or click on the section links to jump directly to the section you are interested in. Members can use a dropdown control to switch between the four different markets that are supported, those being the Dow, S&P 500, S&P 100 and Nasdaq 100.

Note: Members can click on the charts to see them in the SharpCharts Workbench with all of their settings.

The DP Chart Gallery lets you quickly analyze the market using the DecisionPoint Market Analysis process. That involves looking at several different “market dimensions,” those being:

  • Market Trend - Charts that look at the market in different timeframes (daily, weekly and monthly) using the DecisionPoint Price Momentum Oscillator (PMO) and the state of various moving averages to view the market.
  • Market Condition - Charts that track the overbought/oversold state of the market using the DecisionPoint Swenlin Trading Oscillator (STO) and other DecisionPoint market indicators.
  • Breadth - Charts that use Advance-Decline lines, 52-week highs and McClellan Oscillators to gauge broad market health.
  • Sentiment - Charts that track the Investors Intelligence Bullish/Bearish readings, along with the asset ratios of Rydex funds, to see how market participants perceive the market and how they are voting with their dollars.

Erin Swenlin regularly reviews the DP Chart Gallery charts in the DecisionPoint Blog.
