Sector Rotation Model
The Sector Rotation Model (SRM) indicator helps gauge the state of the market relative to the economic cycle.
Six sectors are used in its calculation; Consumer Discretionary, Consume Staples, Financial, Healthcare,
Technology, and Utilities. When Staples, Healthcare and Utilities are outperforming, the market is weaker. This
is shown by sustained negative values of the SRM and usually indicates the trouble in the market.
Conversely, when Financial, Technology and Discretionary sectors are outperforming, the SRM will show
sustained positive values. Bull markets usually follow this condition.

What is missing?
Visualizing the Future with
The MetaStock Forecaster
What does The MetaStock Forecaster do?
It analyzes price action AFTER past events to
determine the probabilities of future price action
It answers the question
Where are prices most likely to be in the future
after an “event” occurs
A event can be anything including crossovers,
divergences, overbought/oversold, breakouts, or
candle patterns.
• Technical Analysis emphasizes the past
• Technical Analysis with the Forecaster
emphasizes the future
• Complex statistics and probability analysis are
elegantly blended into simple, easy-tounderstand Probability Clouds.
How does it determine Probabilities
Statistical and Probability Analysis Techniques
 Randomness Check
 Sample Sizes
 Normal Distribution
 Standard Deviation
 Chi-squared
 Mean Percent Change
 Margin of Error
 Linear Interpolation
The Probability Map
The heart of The Forecaster is the “Probability
The colors represent the tendency of prices to
congregate at a specific level after XX days have
passed since an event.
The more intense the color the higher the
probability that prices tend to congregate in that
price zone.
What does the probability map
Where are prices going?
How long will it take to get there?
What is the direction of price? Long or short?
What should my price targets be?
