Indicator signals

Due to the functioning of CCI and EMA, the signals of the Rubicons CCI Cross indicator are generated very quickly, while it should be borne in mind that they may not always be accurate. The signal to open positions is formed taking into account the values ​​of both indicators.

Signal for Buy trades:

  • - An arrow is formed on a certain candle, indicating the beginning of an uptrend.
  • - The lines of the CCI and EMA indicator crosses the level of 100, that is, the overbought zone from the bottom up.
  • -At the same time, the CCI indicator line should be above the exponential moving average.

After the formation of these conditions, a signal is generated to open a long position. After the exit of the lines from the overbought zone or the formation of an arrow with the opposite direction, the trade should be closed.

Signal for Sell trades:

  • -Under certain conditions, an arrow is formed with a downward direction. This signals the beginning of an uptrend.
  • - Both lines of the indicator cross the oversold zone, that is, the level -100.
  • - EMA indicator, that is, the signal line is above the CCI indicator line, that is, the main one.

After the formation of these conditions, a short position can be opened. After the appearance of an arrow with an upward direction, or after the lines exit the oversold zone, the position should be closed.
