Relative Strength Index (RSI)

RSI measures the strength or weakness of recent activity relative to historical activity for a particular stock or index. The RSI is an oscillator. Its value swings between an upper limit and a lower limit. RSI is calculated using an exponential moving average of the upward price movements divided by the downward price movements over a particular time interval, such as 14 days.

The RSI can identify overbought or oversold conditions when the buying momentum changes. The RSI will range from 0 to 100. Values above 50 are generally considered bullish and values below 50 are generally considered bearish. When the RSI rises above 70 or 80 (in a bull market), it is considered overbought and a bearish sell signal is generated when it reverses. When the RSI falls below 30 or 20 (in a bear market), it is considered oversold and a bullish buy signal is generated when it reverses.

As with a stock, a series of higher highs and higher lows on the RSI indicates a continued bullish trend. Similarly, a series of lower lows and lower highs indicates a continuing bear trend.

When the RSI indicates that the stock is overbought, it will top out ahead of a market price top. When the RSI indicates that the stock is oversold, it will bottom out ahead of a market price bottom. Thus RSI is a good lead indicator of a likely trend reversal.

RSI = 100 - [100/(1 + RS)]
    RS = AG/AL
    AG = Average gain of upward price moves over RSI period of n days
    AL = Average loss of downward price moves over RSI period of n days
    n= days (many analysts use 9 - 15 day RSI)

Small n makes the RSI more volatile, making it hit extremes more often. Large n makes the RSI less volatile, making it less likely to hit extremes.

Projections using RSI are made more meaningful if you do backtesting with a particular stock to see what the RSI levels were when the stock price made reversals.

The RSI is frequently used by momentum traders.

When you are analyzing potential option positions, it helps to have a computer program like Option-Aid that swiftly calculates volatility impacts, probabilities, statistics, and other parameters of interest. These programs can pay for themselves with the first trade that they help you with.
