The Stochastic RSI combines two very popular technical analysis indicators, Stochastics and the Relative Strength Index (RSI). Whereas Stochastics and RSI are based off of price, Stochastic RSI derives its values from the Relative Strength Index (RSI); it is basically the Stochastic indicator applied to the RSI indicator.
As will be shown below in the chart of the S&P 500 E-mini Futures contract, the Stochastic RSI attempts to give buy and sell signals and overbought and oversold readings:
In the chart above of the E-mini S&P 500 Futures contract, the RSI indicator spent most of its time between overbought (70) and oversold (30), giving no potential buy or sell signals. However, the Stochastic RSI used the RSI indicator to uncover potential buy and sell signals.
How a trader might interpret the potential buy and sell signals of the Stochastic RSI is given next in the chart of the S&P 500 E-mini:
Stochastic RSI Potential Buy Signal
A trader might consider buying when the Stochastic RSI crosses above the Oversold Line (20).
Stochastic RSI Potential Sell Signal
A trader might consider selling when the Stochastic RSI crosses below the Overbought Line (80).
