Hi, I have a chart list over at www.stockcharts.com called WORLD SLUMP Within this list I have.. - Copper - widely used in all industries - Oil - Obvious importance - 13 week USA Tbill - Safety - 2 yr USA Bond - Safety - 10 yr USA Bond - USA Mortgages - World Dow Jones stock market index ( $DJW) - Risk These charts show commodity demand for industry, safe havens for cash, and stock market for risk. Question: What other charts would be useful for basic technical analysis that the world economic temperature? At the moment copper and oil say no slump, big money is still supporting world demand, run to safety is showing risk divergence from stocks, but no complete collapse YET. I also would add the BDI index for shipping, but stockcharts.com does not have this symbol. I donât see Gold and silver as important as oil and copper.
