Stochastic + RSI, Double Strategy (by ChartArt)

8376 10
This strategy combines the classic RSI strategy to sell when the RSI increases over 70 (or to buy when it falls below 30), with the classic Stochastic Slow strategy to sell when the Stochastic oscillator exceeds the value of 80 (and to buy when this value is below 20).

This simple strategy only triggers when both the RSI and the Stochastic are together in a overbought or oversold condition. The one hour chart of the S&P 500             worked quite well recently with this double strategy.

By the way this strategy should not be confused with the 'Stochastic RSI', which measures the RSI only.

All trading involves high risk; past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

There is a reason why I published this strategy with the default classic settings of both indicators (RSI strategy + Stochastic strategy). The combination of both indicators results in eight ! different parameters, which all need to be adjusted and backtested to further improve the trading results.

In my research it appears that changing the overbought and oversold condition of the Stochastic can lead to better results than changing the overbought and oversold conditions of the RSI.
Hello ChartArt,

Great work. I really liked this strategy. I would like to know if you have any plans of adding alerts in the future.
I just observed that it repaints :)

repaints?
Mertz74
can anyone confirm?
Vincent121
Yes, it changes afterwards

This is pretty weird. I see no reason why it could repaint, because it doesn't use higher time-frames.

I assume what you mean is that it "repaints" after a candle has closed. Because signals are shown as soon a new candle is printed and if the new candle closes much higher or lower than it opened then it "repaints". But that is an issue which EVERY indicator on Tradingview has.

Strategies which actually repaint, because they use future information not available at the time of trading only in hindsight (because they use close prices of higher-time frames) are especially these two strategies:

And this strategy also repaints, but not as badly as the previous two:

While i'm very new to understanding PineScript, in your explanation of the strategy it seems as if you state it will trigger a buy when both targets have been met RSI falls below 30 and STO gets a KD cross below 20. In your script it seems as if RSI has to cross back above 30 to signal a buy? Also curious as when i drop RSI 14 and STO 14-3-3 below the chart the buys and sells that appear as an overlay to the chart don't quite seem to follow the rules? What i mean by that is an example of the buys and sells that take place from 11/11/15 23:00 to 11/20/15 16:00 . There are times where STO is crossing in oversold territory but RSI>30 (not having been recently oversold) and a buy will occur. What am I missing. Any insight you can provide would be helpful, i've been fiddling with a very similar approach and am interested in what you are doing.
Looks good but unfinished, you just need to create an exit criteria and it works very nice.
