Coppock Curve: Index Studies

The following is a study of the Nasdaq Composite Index when applied to the Coppock Curve.  Our goals is to determine the period for the most optimal performance with the least amount of risk.  We provide data on the Nasdaq Composite Index from 1974 to the present.

The Coppock Curve is one of the technical indicators that we focus on for long-term buy signals for the stock market. The Coppock Curve is only useful as a BUY indicator when the chart goes from positive territory to the negative territory then turns decidedly upward. As previously indicated, the Coppock Curve does not provide SELL signals in any way. Once the signal turns upward (while in the negative territory), investors should consider buying stocks at the beginning of the month.

The following is the Coppock Curve analysis based on the “buy” indication and the subsequent performance.  The review of the Dow Jones Industrial Average can be found in our June 7, 2017 posting while the S&P 500 performance can be found in our June 8, 2017 posting.

Coppock Application to Individual Shares

As our readers may be aware, we're big fans of a market indicator known as the Coppock Indicator or the Coppock Curve.
