The Stiffness is featured in a Markos Katsanos article from November 2018 issue of Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities magazine. According to author, it attempts to recognize strong price trends by counting the number of times price was above a moving average during the indicator period. The premise is the fewer number of times price penetrates the MA, the stronger the trend. This suggests less erratic future price movement as well.
