The Volatility Adjusted RSI Metatrader 5 forex indicator is by definition, a member of the momentum indicator family.
Bearing in mind that our regular RSI indicator is handicapped when having to adjust itself to market volatility (more false signals), the Volatility Adjusted RSI MT5 forex indicator is able to do this by deploying a simple volatility component to adjust the RSI calculation period.
The indicator pops up in a separate window within the activity chart, as a colored buy/sell line that alternates between deep pink and green, based on the prevalent market trend.
The indicator can be used successfully as a scalping tool in combination with a trend following indicator.
Overall trend up? Open scalp trade when the line changes color from pink to green.
Overall trend down? Open scalp trade when the line changes color from green to red.
