Commodity Selection Index

The Commodity Selection Index ("CSI") is a momentum indicator . It was
developed by Welles Wilder and is presented in his book New Concepts in
Technical Trading Systems. The name of the index reflects its primary purpose.
That is, to help select commodities suitable for short-term trading.
A high CSI             rating indicates that the commodity has strong trending and volatility
characteristics. The trending characteristics are brought out by the Directional
Movement factor in the calculation--the volatility characteristic by the Average
True Range factor.
Wilder's approach is to trade commodities with high CSI             values (relative to other
commodities ). Because these commodities are highly volatile, they have the potential
to make the "most money in the shortest period of time." High CSI             values imply
trending characteristics which make it easier to trade the security.
The Commodity Selection Index is designed for short-term traders who can handle
the risks associated with highly volatile markets.
