Scoring Our Point-and-Figure Charts

Last week, we went into all of the details of our proprietary point-and-figure methodology (see here).  We did not mention, however, that we evaluate each individual chart in our universe of knowledge leaders on a monthly basis, giving every one a technical 'score' based on overall trend, viability of support, and presence (or lack thereof) of significant resistance.  Relative to the MSCI ACWI, the most recent highest scores are mostly found in the Health Care sector, while Energy continues to struggle.  As we look more into the details for each region, however, we find technical leadership in other sectors such as Financials and Materials.

(note: The absence of certain sectors in various regions is related to the lack of knowledge leaders in that particular region sector.)
