Indicator signals

And accordingly, the appearance of a new symbol on the chart will be considered an indicator signal.

Signals for Buy trades:

But before the appearance of this symbol, the following conditions must be formed:

  • -The candle is above the upper line of the Bollinger Bands indicator.
  • - The RSI indicator breaks through the 70 level, indicating overbought.

When making a buy trade, stop loss should be set at the point of a recent local minimum.

The appearance of this symbol is preceded by a combination of the following conditions:

  • -Candle opened below the Bollinger Bands indicator.
  • - The RSI indicator breaks through the 30 level, indicating overbought.

When making a sell trade, stop loss should be set at the point of a recent local maximum.
