RSI Range Trader

Developer: FXCM

The RSI Range Trader EA buys and sells depending on the relationship of the instrument’s bid price to the RSI indicator’s level. The Relative Strength Index indicator measures price to determine when an instrument has been overbought or oversold.

BUYING LOGIC

When the RSI indicator crosses above the “lower” level, a buy trade is opened.

Note: Used as an oscillator, this EA will always have a trade open (once the initial buy or sell trade opens). Trades close when the RSI indicator crosses below the “upper” level. When this happens, a new sell trade also opens. All trades open at the close of the current candle. Only one trade at a time is opened, regardless of the number of crossovers that occur. Stops and limits are not used.

SELLING LOGIC

When the RSI indicator crosses below the “upper” level, a sell trade opens.

Note: Used as an oscillator, this EA will always have a trade open (once the initial buy or sell trade opens). Trades close when the RSI value crosses above the “lower” level. When this happens, a new buy trade also opens. All trades open at the close of the current candle. Only one trade at a time is opened, regardless of the number of crossovers that occur. Stops and limits are not used.
