Universal RSI and CCI FOREX strategy

This forex strategy uses two similar oscillators, in a different way, at the same time. Taking advantage of trend identification properties of RSI and immediate price reaction sensitivity of CCI. Together they create a robust forex strategy applicable on most currency and timeframes above 5 minutes.

 

It can be used both with conservative approach to trade the markets and ride a trend, or as a aggressive scalper in 5 minute timeframe, taking advantage of rapid price movements and adding to the winner.

 

On all timeframes it keeps its favorable risk reward ratio due to the tight stop loss and ability to remain in a trade for long period of time.

 

For the best results, trade with professional ECN/STP broker with MT4. If you can't trade with profit. Automatically copy the traders that are already profitable.

 

Used forex indicators

  • RSI (relative strength index) 30. Additional 50 line is used to separate uptrend from downtrend and to filter out ranging conditions. Use thick gray line to draw all three of RSI lines (70,50,30).

  • CCI (commodity channel index) 6. CCI will help us time our entry by finding temporal swings upwards downwards, that can offer the best price for entering the trend following trade.

 

Apply both indicators in timeframe from 5 minutes (for scalping) to 1 Hour (day trading) up to 4 H for positional trading.
