True Strength Index (TSI)


The True Strength Index (TSI) is a momentum indicator. It is used as an indicator for trend direction and for displaying overbought or oversold conditions. As a rule, momentum oscillators preemptively indicate price changes, whereas moving averages generally lag behind the price. The TSI brings together the advantages of these two indicator groups.


The TSI line moves between 100 and -100. Most values are between +25 and -25. These trigger lines can be used to anticipate overbought or oversold situations. A rising TSI signals an uptrend, while falling TSI suggests a downtrend.
