Company shares of Puma Exploration Inc (PUMA.V) have seen the Rank Correlation Indicator climb higher over the past 3 trading days, suggesting that it could be nearing a turning point if the reading crosses the 80 mark.
The Rank Correlation Indicator, or RCI will find the highest high and the lowest low with a given range and will find out if the security is over or undervalued. It is very much like Stoachastic but with different time periods. Created by Charles Spearman, the indicator oscillates between +100 and -100. At +100 there is a maximum positive correlation between rising price and date. However, if the indicator shows -100, the price falls continuously while the date continues to rise. There is hence a maximum negative correlation. The interpretation is analogous to that for other oscillators. If RCI is higher than 80 (overbought), then a sell signal is triggered, and if RCI is lower than -80 (oversold), a buy signal is given.
