How to Use Relative Vigor Index (RVI) Indicator

Relative Vigor Index Indicator Definition

Relative Vigor Index, developed by John Ehlers, is a technical indicator designed to determine price trend direction. The underlying logic is based on the assumption that close prices tend to be higher than open prices in a bullish environment and lower in a bearish environment.

How to Use Relative Vigor Index in Trading

The Relative Vigor Index allows to identify the reinforcement of price changes (and therefore may be used within convergence/divergence patterns analysis):

  • Generally the higher the indicator climbs, the stronger is the current relative price increase;
  • Generally the lower the indicator falls, the stronger is the current relative price drop.

Together with its signal line (Red), a 4-period moving average of RVI, the indicator (Green) may help to identify changes in prevailing price developments:

  • Crossing the signal line from above, the RVI signals a possible sell opportunity;
  • Crossing the signal line from below, the RVI signals a possible buy opportunity.
