Accumulative Swing Index
The Accumulative Swing Index (ASI) is a tool developed by J. Welles Wilder to measure the potential breakability of a given market.
The ASI goes from -100 to 100. A positive figure indicates a bullish trend and a negative figure indicates a bearish trend. Once calculated, the ASI may be added to the candlestick chart. ASI's best feature is that it can be analyzed by the same technical tools applied to candlestick charts, which allows investors to use trend lines, wedges, triangles, and other tools to restore support and resistance levels.
