DEFINITION of 'Demarker Indicator'
An indicator used in technical analysis that compares the most recent price action to the previous period's price in an attempt to measure the demand of the underlying asset. This indicator is generally used to identify price exhaustion and can also be used to identify market tops and bottoms. This oscillator is bounded between 100 and +100 and, unlike many other oscillators, it does not use smoothed data.
