A simple yet profitable RSI strategy
Cryptocurrency markets are highly volatile, a currency can dump 10% very quickly and recover 5% within the next minutes
Let's see how we can profit from that
In this tutorial, we're going to see how to create a trading strategy that profits from oversold conditions, to buy the lowest possible and quickly sell on the uptrend
This tutorial is here to make you understand something : you no longer need to know anything about code to be successful in automated trading
1) Designing the strategy
We're going to use the RSI indicator on 30 min intervals, with Heikin Ashi candles.
RSI (relative strengh index) is an indicator that allows us to notice overbought or oversold assets.
You can learn more about it here
Here are our conditions :
- Buy : when the 14 periods long RSI crosses 30 on the uptrend (when we're leaving the "oversold" zone)
- Sell : when the 14 periods long RSI crosses 60 on the downtrend (when we're leaving the "overbought" zone)
That's all, the simpler strategies are often the best ones
2) Implementing the strategy
Here's the easy part, we're going to go in bots and click on "new bot"
To check a RSI cross with the y=30 line, we juste need to check that : [RSI 1 period ago] < 30 < [actual RSI]
Let's do that : click on the left value and configure a 30 min, 14 periods RSI with Heikin Ashi candles.
On the "intervals back in time" field, select 1 : we want the past candle's RSI.
Press enter, you'll see this :
Repeating the process
We'll need to repeat this process 3 times, and select the values in the middle of them.
We're not going to detail that here as it is quite straightforward.
In the end
If you configured your bot the right way througout the tutorial, you should see that :
