DailyFX RSI Strategy

Developer: FXCM

Description

The DailyFX RSI Strategy uses a simple yet effective RSI trading strategy.   Quantitative strategists from DailyFX.com developed this strategy’s logic after examining millions of trades to find the most effective use of the Relative Strength Index (RSI).

This specific strategy is most effective when used with an appropriate “risk/reward” ratio as outlined in the article, “What is the Number One Mistake Forex Traders Make?” by David Rodriguez, Quantitative Strategist.

Trading Logic

By default, the DailyFX RSI strategy buys and sells according to crosses of a 14-period RSI.

A buy trade is created, at the open of the next bar, when the 14 period RSI crosses above 30.

A sell trade is created, at the open of the next bar, when the 14 period RSI crosses below 70.

The strategy will only have one trade open at any given time.   If an existing DailyFX RSI trade is open, and due to price movements a new signal is created in the opposite direction, the strategy will close the first trade and open a new trade provided the above trading logic is met.

Variables such as RSI Period, Overbought, Oversold, Limit and Stop levels can all be customized using the strategy’s inputs.

Parameters

The following inputs are available in the strategy’s parameters window and can be defined by the app user:

  • LotSize: trade size
  • StopLoss: The stop price, as defined by a number of pips away from the open price
  • TakeProfit: The take profit (limit) price, as defined by a number of pips away from the open price
  • RSIPeriod: The look-back period for RSI.  A lower number increases sensitivity.
  • RSIOverbought: The RSI level the strategy uses to determine an Overbought condition
  • RSIOversold: The RSI level the strategy uses to determine an Oversold condition
