TriggerCharts KRI Indicator – Overview

samll_0006_Group-2

The Key Reversal Indicator (KRI) provides a methodology for indicating when “markets” are overbought or oversold. The algorithm looks at several factors to calculate a specific value that weighs the potential for a reversal.

This indicator can be used in conjunction with market timing or trading in order to better understand the trend as well as used to consider/initiate potential contra-trend positioning.

When markets become significantly overheated/oversold and cluster formations appear on the chart (indicated by green or red dots above a daily bar) there is a very high probability that a market reversal may occur within 1-3 days. Daily bars are colored based on the intensity of the directional trend. Magenta coloring signifies the extreme/exhaustion points.
