Bullish Divergence Short-term Long Trade Finder

This script is a Bullish divergence trade finder built to find small periods where Bitcoin will likely rise from. It looks for bullish divergence followed by a higher low as long as the hour RSI value is below the 40 mark, if then it will enter an long. It marks out Buy signals on the RSI if the value dips below 'RSI Bull Condition Minimum' (Default 40) on the current time frame in view. It also marks out Sell signals found when the RSI is above the 'RSI Bearish Condition Minimum' (Default 50). The sell signals are bearish divergence that has occurred recently on the RSI. When a long is in play it will sell if it finds bearish divergence or the time frame in view reaches RSI value higher than the 'RSI Sell Value'(Default 75). You can set your stop loss value with the 'Stop loss Percentage' (default 5).

Available inputs:
RSI Period: relative strength measurement length(Typically 14)
RSI Oversold Level: the bottom bar of the RSI (Typically 30)
RSI Overbought Level: the top bar of the RSI (Typically 70)

RSI Bearish Condition Sell Min: the minimum value the script will accept a bearish condition (Default 60)

This script was built from much strategy testing on BTC but works with alts (occasionally) also. It is most successful to my knowledge using the 15 min and 7 min time frames with default values. Hope it helps! Follow for further possible updates to this script or other entry or exit strategies.

I only have a Pro trading view account so I cannot share a larger data set about this script because the buy signals happen pretty rarely. The most amount that I could find within a view for me was 40 trades within a viewable time. The suggested/default parameters that I have do not occur very often so it limits the data set. Adjustments can be made to the parameters so that trades can be entered more often. The scripts success is dependent on the values of the parameters set by the user. This script was written to be used for BTC/USD or BTC/USDT trading. I am unable to share a larger dataset without putting out results that are intended to fail or having a premium account so reaching the 100 trade minimum is not possible with my account.
