The Commodity Channel Index (CCI) is one of the more popular indicators that attempts to offer buy and sell signals; the CCI also is used to identify overbought and oversold areas of price action. The CCI is calculated so that roughly 75% of price movement should be between +100 (overbought) and -100 (oversold).
An example of how a trader might use the CCI for potential buy and sell signals is given below in the chart of the E-mini S&P 500 Futures contract:
