Positive Volume Index - PVI
An index that focuses on days where the volume has significantly increased from the previous day's trading.

It tries to determine what smart investors are doing. When trading volume is high it is thought that inexperienced investors are involved. Whereas on slow days, "shrewd investors" quietly buy or sell the stock.
