The RSI MA Oscillator MT4 indicator is composed of the Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicator and a moving average.
The indicator oscillates (thick red line) between two extreme values, 0 and 100, in a separate Metatrader 4 window.
In order to create a real forex system, the RSI MA oscillator needs to be traded in conjunction with a trend following indicator such as the 100 SMA, 50 EMA, Bollinger Bands,…
This creates a buy on dips and sell on rallies forex trading system!
How it works
- The trend following indicator will show us the overall trend
- Only trade oversold and overbought signals from the RSI MA oscillator in the direction of the overall trend
In an up trending market, wait for oversold oscillator signals (around the zero level) and ignore the overbought oscillator signals.
Vice versa, in an down trending market, wait for overbought oscillator signals (around the 100 level) and ignore the oversold oscillator signals.
The default RSI period is set to value 14 but can be changed from the indicator’s inputs tab.
