  1. What is the purpose of this site?

    The Relativity Report provides intermarket analysis and tracks performance trends, chart developments and trade opportunities across major sectors and asset classes.


  2. Can you explain the site’s layout?

    The site is designed to help readers move easily from high-level “intermarket overview” on the Home page to detailed asset class performance breakdowns on the Groups page, while staying abreast of chart developments, trade opportunities and price movements on the Alerts and Quotes pages. Overviews, alerts and quotes are free to all readers. Asset class performance breakdowns are available to paying site members.


  3. What is the cost of a site membership?

    We offer 1-month and 1-year subscriptions, for $10 USD and $100 USD respectively.


  4. Do you offer trial memberships?

    We don’t.


  5. What is an “intermarket overview”?

    An intermarket overview is a high-level examination of correlations between stocks, bonds, commodities and the US dollar geared toward identifying headwinds and tailwinds affecting major asset classes.


  6. What is an “asset class performance breakdown”?

    An asset class performance breakdown is a detailed examination of the relative strengths and weakness of select tradable securities within a particular asset class. Securities are ranked according to their bullish or bearish outlooks.


  7. How do you rank securities within an asset class?

    Using measures of Relative Strength. Top-ranked securities within each class receive a rank of 1 and are deemed bullish relative to their peers.


  8. What is Relative Strength?

    Relative Strength (RS) is a technical analysis concept that measures how one security or index is performing relative to another – for example, how a financial ETF is performing relative to a utilities ETF. It can be gauged in various ways, including simple performance comparisons and more complex charting techniques such as Point and Figure. On this site, we emphasize Point and Figure, but also provide performance and other comparisons.


  9. What types of securities do you rank?

    We rank Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) corresponding to sub-sections of the various asset classes that we track.


  10. What is an Exchange Traded Fund?

    An Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) is a type of security that tracks an index, commodity, or basket of assets. They are similar to mutual funds, but trade intraday on exchanges just like stocks do.


  11. What is Point and Figure?

    Point and Figure (P&F) is a financial charting technique, generally considered to be one of the most objective and straightforward methods of determining price trends (both absolute and relative) and trade entry/exit points.


  12. Do I need to understand Point and Figure to use the site?

    While a detailed understanding of Point and Figure is not required, the site makes heavy use of it. We therefore encourage subscribers to read up the subject. Stock Charts’ free tutorial is a great place to start. For more in-depth examinations, check out Thomas J. Dorsey and/or Jeremy du Plessis.


  13. How often do you update the site?

    The site is updated with current market data once at the end of each trading day. Updates generally occur before 6:15 PM EST but are dependent on the availability of end-of-day prices, and thus may occur later.


  14. How do I sign up?

    It’s easy. Just visit the registration page and choose a payment plan. PayPal will take care of the rest.
