The difference is in the "look back" period. Despite the name, CCI can be used on other investment tools such as stocks. The ATR is not used to figure out price direction, just to measure volatility. Although the CCI indicator was developed for commodities, it has become a popular tool for equity evaluation as well. The general interpretation of the ATR is the higher the ATR value, the higher the volatility.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is one of multiple popular technical indicators created by J. Welles Wilder. ADX is charted as a line with values ranging from 0 to 100. The ATR is not considered a directional indicator, but it may reflect the strength of a particular move. If the RSI is closer to 100, this may indicate a period of stronger momentum. RSI measures the magnitude and velocity of directional price movements. CCI may also be used to help discover divergences that may signal reversal moves. The key for investors will be to try and locate the winners in the space and find the companies that are either creating new technology or adapting to it rapidly. It can be extremely hard to decide when to sell, especially when data seems positive and most signs are pointing higher. Staying on top of the investing scene even when everything is good may help to prepare if conditions change and the climate starts to worsen. Investors will most likely be concentrating on what has proven to work in the past, which may offer a better idea as to how successful the strategies will be heading into the second half of the year and beyond. Deciding to sell a victor after a big run can be tempting, but knowing the underlying causes for the run may help identify if there may indeed be more room for gains. Many investors will set their sights on dips and corrections.
