Description:
Relative Momentum Index (RMI)


Formula Parameters:
Length : 20
BuyZone : 40
SellZone : 70
Source of Price : Close

Notes:
The Relative Momentum Index (RMI) was developed by Roger Altman. Impressed
with the Relative Strength Index's sensitivity to the number of look-back
periods, yet frustrated with it's inconsistent oscillation between defined
overbought and oversold levels, Mr. Altman added a momentum component to the RSI.
As mentioned, the RMI is a variation of the RSI indicator. Instead of counting
up and down days from close to close as the RSI does, the RMI counts up and down
days from the close relative to the close x-days ago where x is not necessarily
1 as required by the RSI). So as the name of the indicator reflects, "momentum" is
substituted for "strength".
