I'm trying to figure out the significance of the Travel Demand Index for the various resorts on II and how it might relate to trading power of your resort. Is this a dynamic index that varies depending on the supply and demand for weeks that II currently has available or is it more of a stagnant index that doesn't change much over time or from year to year? From looking at the demand index for Hyatt Wild Oaks (HYS), it appears is it dynamic. Weeks 21, 22, 26, and 27 are the highest on the chart with 25 next to highest, but 18-20 is below average, 23 average, and 24 and 28 a little above average demand. Generally the summer is the highest demand in San Antonio and you'd expect all of the summer weeks to be way over average in this index unless it's a dynamic index and they don't need some of these weeks. Does anyone know how this works? I assume that your trading power will be highest if you deposit a week that has the peak demand on this chart?

I've always assumed it is historical information.

From year to year it should remain largely unchanged.

The idex rarely changes. There can be many reasons for varying demand for seemingly identically popular weeks, including traditional conventions or sports or other special events. From the II Resort Directory:
Because vacation patterns can vary from year to year, the Travel Demand Index will be updated on a biennial basis, or more frequently if required, as travel and market demand trends warrant.
