How to Trade RSI Divergence

How to Trade RSI Divergence

Walker England, Trading Instructor,

Many traders look to the RSI traditionally for its overbought and oversold levels. While using these levels can be helpful to traders, they often overlook points of divergence that is also imbedded in RSI. Divergence is a potent tool that can spot potential market reversals by comparing indicator and market direction. Below we have an example of the EURUSD turning 738 pips after concluding a 1444 pip decline on a daily chart. Could RSI help us spot the turn? To find out, let’s learn more about traditional divergence.

How RSI divergence can help you spot price reversals in EURUSD.

The word divergence itself means to separate and that is exactly what we are looking for today. Typically RSI will follow price as the EURUSD declines so will the indicator. Divergence occurs when price splits from the indicator and they begin heading in two different directions. In the example below, we can again see our daily EURUSD chart with RSI doing just that.

To begin our analysis in a downtrend, we need to compare the standing lows on the graph. In a downtrend prices should be making lower lows and that is what the EURUSD does between the June 1st and July 24th lows. It is important to note the dates of these lows as we need to compare the RSI indicator at the same points. Marked on the chart below, we can see RSI making a series of higher lows. This is the divergence we are looking for! Once spotted traders can then employ the strategy of their choosing while looking for price to swing against the previous trend and break to higher highs.

It is important to note that indicators can stay overbought and oversold for long periods of time. As with any strategy traders should be looking to employ a stop to contain their risk. One method to consider in a downtrend is to employ a stop underneath the current swing low in price.
