The Top 15 Charts I Review Every Day

by JC Parets  -  November 21, 2018

When we want to see what the market is doing on a given day, we all have our list of the ticker symbols we punch in like DJIA, SPY or QQQ.

Some people are more global and look at things like gold, crude oil or interest rates and countries like Japan, or German indexes. I talk to guys and gals who tell me the Russell 2000 is the market for them.

We’re all different.

The point is to be true to who you are and act accordingly.

In various ways, I get asked a lot what my list of top charts is. The way I interpret this question is, “What are the 15 ticker symbols I punch into my charting software to see what the market did or is doing at any point during the day or night?”

In no particular order:

S&P 500 Futures

Dollar / Yen


Crude Oil

Russell 2000

US 10-year Yield (TNX)



Nasdaq Futures

Regional Banks (KRE)

Technology (XLK)

Dow Transportation Average

Junk Bonds (HYG)

Deutsche Bank (DB)

Berkshire Hathaway (BRKB)

This list has changed over time and will always be evolving as different stocks and assets become more relevant than others in future market environments.

What does your list look like?

Have a great Thanksgiving holiday.

To wise investing,
