A webcast presentation by David Cox, CFA, CMT originally held on June 18th, 2014 as part of the CMT Association’s Educational Web Series.

In this presentation, we’ll take a detailed look at how to use the Relative Strength Index (RSI) in a more advanced way.  The most common (and simplest) approach would be too determine “overbought” and “oversold” levels, but this is far too simple to be of real, practical use.  The RSI can be used to generate buy signals, sell signals, to find high reward: risk entry points, develop great watchlists and perhaps more importantly spot turning points in advance.  Let’s go through a number of examples and learn how to really benefit from this indicator.
