Indicators in the strategy
Bollinger Bands Lower
Bollinger Bands Lower is one of two lines in the Bollinger Bands technical analysis indicator. It is a line plotted two standard deviations below a simple moving average of the price. The Bollinger Bands Lower line is used in conjunction with the Bollinger Bands Upper line to form a volatility channel around the price. The two lines help traders identify potential overbought and oversold levels, as well as changes in volatility.
Bollinger Bands Middle
Bollinger Bands Middle is the simple moving average (SMA) line at the center of the Bollinger Bands technical analysis indicator. The SMA line is used as the basis for the calculation of the Bollinger Bands Upper and Bollinger Bands Lower lines, which are plotted two standard deviations away from the SMA line. The Bollinger Bands Middle line is a measure of the average price of the security being analyzed and helps traders to identify trends and potential breakouts.
RSI (Relative Strength Index)
The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is a popular momentum oscillator used in technical analysis. It measures the strength of a security's price action by comparing the magnitude of its recent gains to the magnitude of its recent losses and normalizing the result into an index value that ranges from 0 to 100.
RSI is often used to identify overbought and oversold conditions in an asset, as well as potential trend reversals. Values above 70 are considered overbought, while values below 30 are considered oversold. A bullish reversal is indicated when the RSI value crosses above 50, while a bearish reversal is indicated when it crosses below 50.
