The Commodity Channel Index (CCI) is an oscillator originally developed in 1980 by Donald Lambert and featured in his book "Commodities Channel Index: Tools for Trading Cyclical Trends".

CCI is an oscillator used to identify cyclical trends in indices, ETFs, stocks, and commodities.


It measures the difference between a security's price change and its average price change. High or positive readings indicate that prices are well above their average, which shows strength. Low or negative readings indicate that prices are well below their average, which is a shows weakness.

This indicator measures the current price level relative to an average price level over a given period of time; default period is taken as 20. The CCI can be adjusted to the timeframe of the market traded on by changing the averaging period.

Why to buy Maruti Suzuki India?

There are a lot of trading strategies using CCI; below mentioned is one of the most popular among trading community which involves buying after bullish divergence formation keeping low as a stop loss for higher movement; however support of another indicator Bollinger Band can give additional support.

Recently, stock logged a key low of Rs 4,803 and managed to close higher above previous day’s close indicating bulls are active on lower levels and strong buying is emerging below Rs 5,000 mark.

At the same time, CCI traded below -200 which is called as oversold or reversal levels and possibility of bouncing back towards neutral levels of 0 are very high. Prices traded lower but closed above lower Bollinger band with a big bullish candlestick pattern also suggest buying setup and prices can move towards middle band of BB.

Moreover, CCI placed a higher low compared to earlier low, forming bullish positive divergence which imply bottoming out process and suggest buy on dip strategy. Currently the Maruti is going through this setup and we expect higher price movement towards resistance zone standing around Rs 6,600-6,700 levels in coming days.
