NH/NL is on track to go bullish on Friday March 25th. Possible short-term bottom March 14th. The market is only about 6% below the January high, and so DBE could easily reset in the next month. Alcoa kicks off earnings season on April 21.

This link is no longer being updated daily on most days. I try to rely on this for daily updates to NHNL by hitting ‘Run Screener’. Curious what others are using if NHNL daily updates are wanted. Thanks

Perhaps you can use stockcharts.com. It uses a difference,
not the 9 day ratio set up in GTR1, but both usually trigger bull/bear signals the same day.

I use MACD to easily set up and see signal changes instead of setting up EMA(9) and a horizontal
line at 0. If you want that instead of MACD, the ‘invisible’ chart suppresses the main graph, making the
EMA easier to see. If you want the actual net differences as they change daily that can be read off the little table on the left side of the graph or the closing values at the top of the graph. Today it reads -48, so there are 48 more new lows than new highs today.

At least, I think this is correct.

For March 22, gtr1 has 51 NH, 12 NL, 2303 total.
barchart reports 55 NH, 18 NL, 3452 total.
wsj reports 82 NH, 130 NL, 4994 total.

The gtr1 code uses a lower total count (dropping ETFs, ADRs, LPs, IPOs, etc.):

step0: Nasdaq
step1: [Security Type] == 10,11,18,48
step2: [Mkt Days Since Security Opened] >= 252
step3: Only 1 share class for each company.

count of stocks passing each step:

step0  step1  step2  step3
4221   2643   2326   2302

Really? Stockcharts standard version is not there yet. Raw number -78, EMA(9) -132.48.

There are various sources for Nasdaq NHNL data. Some sources include ETFs, and many bond ETFs are at new lows recently. GTR1 uses dividend adjusted prices, and this has the effect of lowering the 52-week high and 52-week low.

For March 28th, WSJ Markets Diary has 65 NH and 162 NL. This matches stockcharts $NAHL -97.

Nasdaq reports different numbers:
Mar 25, 2022 04:30 PM : Market Closed Highs : 59 Lows : 116
Mar 28, 2022 04:30 PM : Market Closed Highs : 36 Lows : 88
https://www.nasdaq.com/market-activity/nasdaq-52-week-hi-low…

barchart excludes ETFs, and reported 35 NH and 75 NL. https://www.barchart.com/stocks/momentum

barchart has indexes that can be charted:
$MAHQ 52-Week Highs NASDAQ
$MALQ 52-Week Lows NASDAQ
$MADQ 52-Week Hi - Lo NASDAQ
https://www.barchart.com/stocks/quotes/$MADQ/interactive-cha…
(settings: bar type column APPLY.
+Study: moving average, 9 periods.)

I downloaded 2 years of barchart $MADQ price history, and found the signal dates when a 9 day simple moving average changed sign. The dates are close to the gtr1 [NHNLdiff] signal.
