Inertia 

Parameters 
RS Period Standard Deviation Period Linear Regression Indicator Period 
Usage 
Inertia(14,10,20) 

Description 
Developed by Donald Dorsey, the Inertia measure is an extension of the Relative Volatility Index (RVI). Inertia uses output from the RVI as the input to the formula for the linear regression indicator. Each point of the Interia measure is the nday linear regression value of the RVI. The basic idea behind this measure is that the Inertia will indicate how much weight the stock is carrying in it's current direction of motion.
Three parameters are used with the Inertia measure on StockFetcher. The first two are the input parameters for the RVI measure. The third period is the number of days used in computing the linear regression of the RVI measure. As with the RVI and RSI the Inertia results range between 0 and 100.
