Dynamic Momentum Index (DMIndex)

Print this Topic Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page


An indicator used in technical analysis that determines overbought and oversold conditions of a particular asset. This indicator is very similar to the relative strength index (RSI). The main difference between the two is that the RSI uses a fixed number of time periods (usually 14), while the dynamic momentum index uses different time periods as volatility changes.
