Did You Know?

The Composite Index used in technical analysis was developed by Constance Brown?

It was developed to fix a problem traders and asset manager were experiencing with the existing Relative Strength Index, which frequently failed to show any divergence where markets were flatter, and therefore missed trend reversals. By imbedding a Momentum formula within the Relative Strength Index, Constance showed a significantly improved trend reversal signal and timing characteristics. David Nye uses the Composite Index (amongst other studies) for his fascinating technical analysis views on the Norwegian and Chilean salmon markets published weekly by the LFEX.
