Connors RSI

Connors RSI

Created by Larry Connors, this indicator is a composite of three separate components. Two of the three components utilize the Relative Strength Index (RSI) calculations developed by Welles Wilder in the 1970’s, and the third component ranks the most recent price change on a scale of 0 to 100.

Indicator Description

The Connors RSI is a momentum oscillator with three components: The RSI, UpDown Length and Rate-of-Change. The output value between 0 and 100 identifies short-term overbought and oversold conditions.

The Connors RSI can be used together with other indicators to consider long/short opportunities, for example:

  • Long setup when cross above 30
  • Exit long scenario when cross below 70
  • Short setup when cross below 70
  • Exit short scenario when cross above 30
