The Commodity Selection Index (CSI) is a momentum indicator developed by Welles Wilder. Generally used to help in selecting stocks for short term trades, the CSI highlights commodities with strong trending and volatility characteristics. Wilder liked to trade commodities with high CSI levels because they should (in theory) make the most money the fastest. As a short term indicator, some day trading masters may find it useful, as it may help to highlight those futures that have high volatility and thus trade well in a breakout fashion - potentially interesting to camarilla {b} equation users. The calculation for this indicator is very complex; we refer you to Wilder's book 'New Concepts in Technical Trading Systems' for detailed information on generating the CSI.
