RSI Scalping Forex Trading Strategy

Sep 03, 2019
RSI Scalping Forex Trading Strategy

You can now download the RSI Scalping Forex Trading Strategy for free on AtoZ Markets indicators gallery.

The oscillating indicator we will be looking at will be the Relative Strength Indicator (RSI). Normally, traders use it to determine overextended prices. If the RSI is above 70, the market is said to be overbought. If it is below 30, then the market is said to be oversold. But I find that this is not the only way to look at RSI. Instead, in a bullish bias market, we will be looking first for RSI to drop, before it continues its bullish trend.

Since this is a scalping strategy, we will be using the 1-minute chart exclusively. For those who are not yet adept to quick trading, you may use the 5-minute chart, however, that would already border more towards a day trade type of time frame.

There will be advantages and disadvantages for both timeframes though. The 1-minute chart will have more noise, but personally I find it easier to predict due to the short span of time I hold the trade on this timeframe. The 5-minute chart will have less noise, but I find that many things could happen that could reverse the market sentiment during the span of time I hold trades on the 5-minute chart.
