Relative Volume Strength Index

RVSI is an alternative volume-based indicator that measures the rate of change of average OBV.

How to read a chart using it?

  • First signal to buy is when you see RVSI is close to green oversold levels.
  • Once RVSI passes above it's orange EMA , that would be the second alert of accumulation.
  • Be always cautious when it reaches 50 level as a random statistical correction can be expected because of "market noises".
  • You know it's a serious uptrend when it reaches above 75 and fluctuates there, grading behind EMA .
  • The best signal to sell would be a situation where you see RVSI passing below it's EMA when the whole thing is close to Red overbought level

It looks simple, but it's powerful!
I'd use RVSI in combination with price-based indicators.
