RSI and Stochastic Binary Options Trading System.

Binary Options type of trading suggests using trading cycles to boost profits. This approach is keen on considering short-term timeframes as most lucrative in the scope of trading frequency and potential return. Some traders even use 5-minutes timeframe to arrange deals. However, the practise shows that ultra-short-term charts are vulnerable to a large number of price spikes and whipsaws, sudden reversals in the trend direction and too many fake signals. Thus, the timeframe range is narrowing to three options such as 15-, 30- and 60-minutes.

Among the full range of trading methods, the reversal one looks more attractive as it brings potentially larger movements and stronger trends as the result of the technical analysis. Sideways ranges aren’t that easy to analyse while trading by the current trend could lead to losses if the entry depth were not appropriately identified. However, the real question is how to find reversal patterns on those timeframes?

RSI and Stochastic Binary Options Trading System is based on two oscillators which show the best moment to start a trading cycle. The first one - Relative Strength Index - is a well-known and popular tool used by many technical analysts across the globe. It’s also multi-purpose as it has several patterns like divergences (both confirmative and reversal), strength levels pointing to trend’s direction and overbought/oversold levels to assess when the market is getting exaggerated. The Stochastic oscillator has a similar mathematical formula, but in this case, we’ll use it as a secondary tool whether to confirm or deny signals coming from RSI indicator. Another useful option of the combination is that different periods and settings might adjust the system for different underlying assets.

As far as we’re looking for a reversal pattern, we should focus on RSI’s overbought levels for trading on put options and oversold levels when considering a call-options trading cycle. The primary model is easy to identify. RSI has to cross the 70 level from below, stay in the overbought territory for a while, reverse and go back below it. That’s the moment when we start monitoring the Stochastic Oscillator. Once it slides below the 50% level, we start buying put options. Call options trading should be considered with an opposite pattern. RSI falls below the 30 level, signalling oversold territory, and edges up after some time, crossing the threshold from below. If the Stochastic goes above the 50% level, we start buying call options. Both oscillators’ periods should be modified from the default settings (RSI 13, Stochastic 11,3,3).

There are several approaches on when should traders stop the trading cycle. Some analysts prefer using pre-determined price levels for each asset. For example, if EUR/USD moves 15-20 pips, then it’s time to stop. Those distances vary depending on assets’ volatility and trading volume. Another option to monitor the best exit point is to find the opposite pattern. For instance, if we were buying call options and RSI went into the overbought territory, then it’s worth grabbing your money and run. An example of the system is shown below.
