What is Paychex 5-Day RSI?

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is a momentum oscillator that measures the speed and change of price movements. The RSI is most typically used on a 14-day period, measured on a scale from 0 to 100. Traditionally, an asset is considered overbought or overvalued when the RSI is above 70 and oversold or undervalued when it is below 30. A shorter period RSI is more reactive to recent price changes, so it can show early signs of reversals. 5-Day RSI is sometimes used together with 14-Day RSI in a two period divergence strategy.
