ETF Movers: China, Utilities, Basic Materials

It’s been some time since I’ve posted ETF movers and today is a good day to begin again considering today’s move is a significant one.  The Nasdaq is clearing key resistance at 2200 and looks like it will hold above that level into the close.  However, today’s move is lacking oomph as indicated by the lack of ETFs making a big move today.  In addition, volume levels for the major market tracking ETF’s (QQQQ, SPY and DIA) are running below average at this point in the trading day with volume 9%, 18% and 41% below average.  (Data as of 2:30EST)

Note: The DI scores measure the demand of the ETF using price and volument movements.  The higher the score, the greater the demand for the fund.  The China Ishares ETF is making another big move today, as it has over the past couple of weeks.  The fund showing the greatest demand over the past 20 days is the Ishares Malaysia (EWM) ETF with a score of 26.  The following table shows the top 10 over the past 20 days.
