Commodity Selection Index

In technical analysis, a measure of how strong a trend on a commodity is. A high value on the CSI indicates that the current trend on a security, whether upward or downward, is strong. Investors use the CSI for short-term commodity trades. That is, if a CSI shows a strong upward trend, it is likely that rises will continue for the immediate future. However, using the CSI alone can be risky, as it cannot show when a reversal will take place.
