How to use the RSI to Find Entry Points in Olymp Trade

RSI, also known as relative strength indicator is a technical analysis tool in Olymp Trade.

It falls under oscillators.

Unlike moving averages which simplify price data to show trends;

RSI’ strength is in showing trade reversal and entry points.

Apply this indicator in your chart and you will notice two lines running parallel like in the image below

These two lines can either intersect upwards or downwards.

When you notice such intersections, consider them a signal to open a trade in the trending direction.

Note – if you edit the indicator by reducing the RSI period, you will receive more signals to open a trade. However, most of the signals will be less accurate.

On the other hand, you can increase the periods of the indicator. Now doing this will give you fewer signals but they will be more accurate.

How to Read the RSI Indicator to Open Winning Trades 

When using any oscillator, always trade in the direction of the trend.

You can pick your direction by analysing the direction of the chart and comparing it to the RSI.

Now, if the RSI does not coincide with the price in your chart, know that the trend may soon reverse and it is not safe to open a trade.

If the two directions sync though, open a trade in the direction shown.

Overbought & Oversold Assets as seen in RSI

Though not so often, you will sometimes notice the RSI line rise above level 70.

Do you know what this means?

It implies that the asset which you are trading is overbought.

Other times you will see it fall below level 30 to imply that the asset which you are trading is oversold.

Overbought Assets 

When an asset is overbought its value grows quickly

And this only means one thing,

The price soon reacts by going back down.

Oversold Assets 

On the same breath you will notice oversold assets when the price falls fast then stops.

When an asset is oversold, you can expect to see it rise again in no time.

Look out for the RSI crossing the level 30 line upwards. When it does, consider it your entry signal to open an UP trade.
