Choppiness Index (CHOP)

The Choppiness Index (CHOP) is an indicator designed to determine if the market is choppy (trading sideways) or not choppy (trading within a trend in either direction). The Choppiness Index is an example of an indicator that is not directional at all. CHOP is not meant to predict future market direction, it is a metric to be used to for defining the market's trendiness only. A basic understanding of the indicator would be; higher values equal more choppiness, while lower values indicate directional trending.

Not clear at all.
Same indecision, with increasing volatilit (-> see ATR!) Not trending, it is still just a choppy sideaway. Wait until clear signal comes!

DJIA Could Have Terminating Move Up on 12/5/16
The move down from the DJIA high at 19225 has been choppy and shallow - it appears to be a Horizontal Triangle. If its complete we can expect a sharp thrust up on 12/5/16. If so the rally may not last very long or go very much above 19225. The SPX and Nasdaq would likely rally with the DJIA and probably fail to ...

I only have made 1 forecast for the entire year in each of the past 4 years. The market rarely does what the majority thinks it will. So I do my best to be sure that I am not in the majority. Last year I was neutral expecting choppy action when everyone else was very bullish. This year with many bears, therefore ...

As volatility is really low we may get a downmove during the next week (28th-2nd of November). When you look at similar occasion during the past 3 years (ATR% Pannel/Green Line), we had a declining market in 6/7 times. You can also look at the vix:vxv ratio for the US market which is at 0,8 at the moment. At this ...

A good proxy for the Banks
it appears Bank of New York is heading for new high. For the very very big picture not shown here, we can see that from its all-time high printed in 2001, BK has only declined in a very choppy overlapping manner highly suggesting it is a counter trend move telling us eventually BK will move above 62. Now the ...

Corn continues uptrend but will be met with downtrend resistance at next flight. If broken through will be met with resistance at 370. Double top reversal may occur and create choppy conditions.

Since its recent high, Cisco has been moving sideways in a choppy manner suggesting there's still some upside potential left but as shown on this chart using the Wave Principle, we are ending something.
