Relative Strength Index – Definition
(Excerpted from High Probability ETF Trading – 7 Professional Strategies to Improve Your ETF Trading, by Larry Connors, Cesar Alvarez and Connors Research)
The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is a popular momentum oscillator developed by J. Welles Wilder in the 1970s. The RSI compares the magnitude of a market’s recent gains to the magnitude of a market’s recent losses.
A simple formula calculates this price action into a number between 1 and 100. Markets with RSIs closer to 1 are considered oversold. Markets with RSIs closer to 100 are considered overbought.
RSI = 100 - (100/(1 + RS)) RS = average of x days up closes / Average of x days down closes
