New High/New Low ratio is a ratio based on new 52-week high issues and new 52-week low issues.
This indicator is best for identifying a bottom if you use this with other breadth indicators.
However, this is not so useful to know the timing for short because bull momentum tends to continue.
(Market top period is long, market bottom period is short.)
(2) How to use?
- Add this indicator to your chart.
- Overbought >85 tends to continue, so don't short too early. You rather want to hold long until bull momentum deteriorates.
Dark green = momentum zone.
- Oversold < 30 and if rolls over at the bottom, you can pile up long position.
