DEFINITION of 'DUAL Commodity Channel Index - DCCI'
A method used in technical analysis to identify when an asset or market is overbought or oversold. DCCI is employed by graphing a smoothed Commodity Channel Index (CCI) line along with an unsmoothed one. Crossovers of the two lines indicate possible buy and sell signals, while subsequent breaks in the price trendline are then seen as definite entry and exit points.
