Market Breadth Analysis
A TRIN above 1 indicates that the volume in declining stocks outpaced the volume in advancing stocks. In the final example the TRIN was below 1, indicating the volume in advancing stocks was healthy and outpaced the volume in declining stocks
A number of TRIN interpretations have evolved over the years. Richard Arms, the originator, uses the TRIN to detect extreme conditions in the market. He considers the market to be overbought when the 10-day moving average of the TRIN declines below .8 and oversold when it moves above 1.2. Other interpretations seek to use the direction and absolute level of the TRIN to determine bullish and bearish scenarios. In the momentum driven markets, the TRIN can remain oversold or overbought for extended periods of time.
