trading forex with one indicator

Indicator: Relative Strength Index (RSI)

Trading Strategy:

Buy Signals:

RSI crosses above 30 from below.
This indicates that the market is oversold and a potential uptrend is forming.

Sell Signals:

RSI crosses below 70 from above.
This indicates that the market is overbought and a potential downtrend is forming.


Enter the trade when the RSI signal is confirmed by price action (e.g., a breakout from a support or resistance level).
Use a stop-loss order below support (for buys) or above resistance (for sells).


Exit the trade when the RSI signal reverses (e.g., RSI falls below 30 for a buy trade or rises above 70 for a sell trade).
Alternatively, use a trailing stop-loss to capture potential profits.


Time Frame: The RSI can be used on any time frame, but higher time frames (e.g., hourly or daily) are more reliable.
Overbought/Oversold Levels: The 30 and 70 levels are common indicators of overbought and oversold conditions, but other levels (e.g., 20 and 80) can also be used.
Avoid False Signals: RSI signals can sometimes be delayed or false. Confirm the signals with other technical indicators or price action patterns.
Manage Risk: Always use a stop-loss order to limit potential losses.
Test and Optimize: This is not a guaranteed trading strategy and should be tested on historical data and optimized to suit your specific trading style and risk tolerance.


The USD/JPY pair is trading at 110.00.
The RSI crosses above 30 from below.
A breakout above the resistance level at 110.25 confirms the RSI signal.
A buy trade is entered with a stop-loss below 110.00.
The RSI eventually falls below 30, signaling a sell trade.
The trade is exited for a profit at 109.75.
