Smart money index (SMI) or smart money flow index is a technical analysis indicator demonstrating investors sentiment.
The index was invented and popularized by money manager Don Hays. The indicator is based on intra-day price patterns.
The main idea is that the majority of traders (emotional, news-driven) overreact at the beginning of the trading day
I have used this indicator to find many lucrative opportunities. This indicator takes the moving average of CCI in custom, volatility-specific conditions. CCI measures "overbought" in the red-shaded region and "Oversold" in the green-shaded region. The shaded regions do not constitute a buy/sell signal alone, the MS CCI Squeeze is best used when market...

It can be used to confirm trends, as well as spot possible trading signals due to divergences.
A benefit of the oscillator version is that it...
FVE is a money flow indicator but with two important differences from existing money flow indicators:

Unlike other money flow indicators which add...
