Complicated answer to a simple question...


How does it all work?


I thought it would be short answer to a simple question from one of our customers. But I was wrong… It is obvious to me how to combine all our indicators into a consistent and profitable strategy. But I’ve used most of them for years and just know how to interpret almost all the nuances of their behavior. I know what it means when the Advantage Oscillator makes double top on the chart or long red candlestick appears after the mid-term Dot. I know when to trade and when it’s better to hold back. And now I will try to show you all this. My way of trading.

Just a better RSI...


Normalized RSI


One of the most popular technical indicators comes in one setting: 14-period RSI... Ever wondered why? Why haven't I heard of 31-period RSI....? Or 3,47 or 88-period...? Probably because all settings below and above the initial value show confusing signals, that can't be compared against the same reference point: 30/70 zones. Well...not anymore...




 

RSI: Uncommon approach to a common oscillator


RSI: Uncommon approach to a common oscillator


RSI is a good technical indicator. When used properly it shows dominant market trend and also shows zones for potential local tops in uptrend (bottoms in downtrend) and zones to look for the ends of corrections.
Books say that when RSI(14) is crossing down 70 points line, trader gets a sell signal and when it is crossing up 30 points line a bottom was just formed. This is NOT how regular RSI should be used. In uptrend it will almost never get close to 30 and will frequently go above 70.

HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM.

FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR TO ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.
