A stocks price change over a period of time relative to that of a market index,...
Price performance of a stock or group of stocks compared to a given norm, such as the Standard & Poor's 500 or the Dow Jones industrial average. A stock moving up 20% when the norm moves only 10% is considered to have good relative strength.
A charting technique where an industry share price index or the price history of a stock is compared with the movements in a larger sector. One is divided with the other and the result is expressed as an index.
A measure of how a share is performing relative to other shares in the market. A value of less than 1.0 implies the stock performed weaker than the market and vice versa. Here's the formula: Relative Strength = (Current Price/ Year-Ago Price) / (Current Index Value/ Year-Ago Index Value)
stock's price change over a period of time relative to that of a market , such as the S&P 500. Usually measured on a scale from 1 to 100, 1 being worst and 100 being best. see also momentum, technical analysis.
measure of the market performance of a stock in comparison to its own industry and/or a market index for a stated time period.
shows the stock's price strength as measured against the S&P 500 Index. Figures greater than 100 indicate strong relative price performance.
A stock's price movement compared to the movement of a market index, such as the S&P 500.
The relative strength of a stock is its price movement as compared to a market index over a one year period. To calculate the relative strength take the current stock price divided by the stock price a year a ago and divide that number by the current index price divided by the price of the index from a year ago. Stocks show either a relative strength in price movement, where the value of the relative strength is greater than 1, or a relative weakness in price movement, where the value of the relative strength is less than 1.
The strength of a stock's price relative to all other stocks. A relative strength of 80 means that the stock price has outperformed 80% of all other stocks in the data base.
Relative strength, also known as relative price strength, rates the performance of a stock versus the performance of the market as a whole over a given time period. The rating system gives a numerical grade - just like the ones Mr. Spicer used to scrawl in bright red ink on your algebra quizzes - to the performance of a stock over a given period, normally the past 12 months. Thus, relative strength is a momentum indicator. The most popular form of relative strength ratings are those published in Investor's Business Daily, which go from 1 to 99. A relative strength of 95, for example, indicates a wonderful stock, one that has outperformed 95% of all other U.S. stocks over the past year. However, given that relative strength is only a mathematical relationship between the stock's performance and an index's performance, many others have created their own relative strength measures.
A comparison of an individual stock's performance to that of a market index. Most times the S&P 500 or the Dow Jones Industrial Index are used for comparison purposes. It is calculated by dividing the stock price by the index price. A rising line indicates that the stock is doing better than the market. A declining line indicates that the stock is not doing as well as the market.
Measures how well a stock has performed compared to the S&P 500 during the last 52-week period.
Stocks which have been strong relative to all other stocks should continue to be relatively stronger in the future and securities which have been relatively weak tend to continue to be weaker.
Price performance of a stock divided by the price performance of an appropriate index over the same time period. A measure of price trend that indicates how a stock is performing relative to other stocks.
A technical analysis tool. It allows two items to be compared, such as IBM stock versus the S&P 500.
Also called price momentum or price persistence, the ratio of the price of a stock to some price index. Changes in the ratio can be interpreted as uptrends or downtrends relative to the price index.
Relative strength rates the performance of every stock listed on the three major U.S. exchanges (the New York Stock Exchange, the American Stock Exchange, and the Nasdaq). The rating system gives a numerical grade to the performance of a stock over the past 12 months, assigning a grade of 1 to 99. Thus, relative strength is a momentum indicator. A relative strength of 95, for example, indicates a wonderful stock that has outperformed 95% of all other stocks over the past year.
Stock price's movement over last year compared to a market index.
Strength of the stock relative to other stocks in its category. Usually given a comparative number in major financial news publications.
A term to describe how a given stock is acting compared to an index. Like a comparison of an individual stock's performance to that of a market index. Most times the BSE Sensex or the S&P CNX Nifty are used for comparison purposes.
One of the most important technical analysis indicators. The relative strength, for a given period, indicates the performance status of the company’s share price, relative to the performance of an underlying, benchmark index, for the market over the same period.
A stock's price movement over the past year as compared to a market index (the S&P 500). Value below 1.0 means the stock shows relative weakness in price movement (underperformed the market); a value above 1.0 means the stock shows relative strength over the 1-year period. Equation for Relative Strength: [current stock price/year-ago stock price] [current S&P 500/year-ago S&P 500
Indicates the forecasted price movements for each of the eight currencies in the Currency Ranking service due to expected medium-term rate fluctuations. The relative strength for each currency is computed from a correlation between a Trading Model-generated forecast and the currency's price history. The strength of each currency can range from a minimum -1.0 to a maximum +1.0. We use Trading Models 40, 60, and 70 to compute relative strengths every hour on the hour, 365 days a year.
A comparison of a share with a peer group or market index, made to determine whether the share outperforms or underperforms the peer group or market index. This is achieved by dividing the closing share price by the closing sector or market index value for each day and plotting the results as a line. Not be confused with RSI (see below).
A measure of price trend that indicates how a stock is performing relative to other stocks in its industry.
The rate at which a stock rises relative to other stocks in a rising market or falls relative to other stocks in a falling market.
