Unemployment Momentum Model

This model uses a Smoothed RSI to measure the momentum of the Civilian Unemployment Rate as published by FRED . The behavior of the unemployment rate makes it ideal for applying momentum-based timing techniques because it tends to rise sharply in a short time period and then declines gradually over a longer period. Using other basic momentum-based timing techniques also works well (e.g., EMA crossover, MACD , ROC , etc.)

Please note that you cannot trade the unemployment rate directly. This model is meant to help you understand the state of the current economy in the context of unemployment.
