RSI Bottom

High Probability Trading with the Delphian Studies

Relative Strength Index (RSI) with State ModelingTM

How to identify stocks that have formed a bottom, are oversold and ready to rebound.

There are two signals when combined help identify such stocks - Relative Strength Index (RSI) with State ModelingTM

Explanation of the Signals:

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is a momentum oscillator that measures the speed and change of price movements.  The RSI oscillates between 0 and 100.  The standard default for days is 14. Traditionally, the RSI is considered overbought when above 70 and oversold when below 30.

State Modeling™ is a proprietary signal from Delphian Trading.  Stocks are in a State numbered from 1 to 8 at any given time and only in one state at a time.  States 1, 3, 5 and 7 are bullish and States 2, 4, 6 and 8 are bearish.  State 1 is extremely bullish while State 8 is extremely bearish.  This signal allows users to find symbols based on their current state and whether or not their current targets or stops losses have been met.

Trade Theory:

State 8 in State Modeling™ is the most bearish state and typically has large downward moves over an extended period of time. Once the State Modeling State 8, target 3 has been hit, the stock has hit Delphian’s most aggressive target price. The target 3 price is a potential support area with a possible reversal ahead. After State 8, more often than not, a symbol will transition into a bullish state. Using a secondary confirmation can assist in solidifying a potential price support and reversal. When Relative Strength Index (RSI) has bottomed out at a low and is increasing, buyers typically come into the market. When the 14-day RSI crosses above 30, the signal presents a buying opportunity. The combination of these two signals presents a potential bottom with a typically gradual rise over time.

The RSI Bottom study uses a 14-day RSI crossing above 30 with the State Modeling™, State 8, target 3 met as a bottom in the market and a reversal pending in the price.
