The Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (DIA) triggered a rare monthly buy signal at the close yesterday, January 31, states Larry Tentarelli of the Blue Chip Daily Trend Report.

Before the close on 1/31/24, this signal was only triggered four other times since (DIA) started trading, in 1998.

The buy signal is a bullish monthly Price Momentum Oscillator (PMO) cross, after at least two consecutive months with a negative reading. The (PMO) is an oscillator based on a Rate of Change (ROC) calculation that is smoothed twice with exponential moving averages that use a custom smoothing process.

The (PMO) is a slightly slower oscillator than the Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) and often precedes a major trend move in the direction of the cross.

While 4 signals is not a large sample size, it is the only available data to work with.

Of the four prior occurrences, (DIA) was higher 12 months later, 100% of the time, with an average return of 17.31%, (full data below).

The bullish monthly (PMO) cross, coupled with a monthly base breakout to new all-time highs, are two very strong trend buy signals.

Disclosure: We are holding a long position in (DIA) at the time of this post.
