    Well, you would probably get as many opinions as there are subscribers.

    For relative strength, assuming you mean versus an index, Price relative, or Price-Performance (e.g. IBM:$SPX) is probably the most useful.

    For internal strength, I think you should strongly consider the SCTR, which essentially measures rate of change over several time frames. A lot of people like RSI, which in an up trend indicates strength above about 40. MACD Line above 0 is also generally considered a good sign of strength.

    But anybody else feel free to chime in.
