The description of the indicator below is provided by Lars Kjoes.

Simply put formula for warning when RSI is failing to detect market reversals. I have added a picture with points and descriptions below. Note the differences highlighted with pink lines in the picture:

- Point A: The CFG MO shows a positive reversal when RSI is not. Also note that the MO turns about on the slower moving average which signifies support. The averages are also showing positive spread. Both the latter clarifies the reversal signal. Also note that IF support had been at a point where the averages had crossed and the faster on the way up, this would be a strong continuation signal.

- Point B: The CFG MO shows divergence when RSI does not. Again note the turning point in CFG MO with the fast moving average as resistance.

- Point C: As in point B the turning point is with resistance of the faster moving average.

- Note that this is in a 60min chart and these relatively clear signals would not necessarily show up in other time frames. For example at a reversal in the 60min chart the MO would not show any MA signals, but in 4hours it could give a strong reversal or divergence signal straight on a MA-crossing.
