I was playing around with the Future Trend function in SlopeCharts this morning, and the results I was seeing among ETFs was fascinating. Since Future is based on past price behavior, it is very, very, very biased to the upside, because – – in case no one mentioned it here on Slope – – central bankers have firehosed trillions of dollars of “money” at assets for the past eleven years, so things are tilted skyward.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at what is projected. The “diamonds”, the ETF based on the Dow Industrials, looks poised to continue marching in perpetuity. What I find really interesting – – and you’ll see this on many charts below – – is how obedient even future price action is with respect to the drawn objects.
