Relative Strength Index 3x Extrema SELL - DG 2 Hour Chart Accuracy
This algorithm accurately identifies SELL points for DG on 2 hour charts 98.148% of the time it signals. A successful signal means the equity price moves down at least 0.5% over the next 40 2 Hour bars. When the algorithm properly performs, success is seen at least 1 trading bars after the signal closing price with a median max gain occurring around 21 trading bars after the signal bar. Successful signals see average reversals of 3.579% from the signal bar closing price and median reversals of 3.167%. The equity reverses greater than two percent 66.667% of the time, greater than five percent 24.074% of the time, and moves beyond ten percent 3.704% of occurrences. The signal does not necessarily mean an immediate price reversal will occur. Price reversal is delayed 94.444% of the time. In these instances, the reversals do not obey the signal and begin sizable downward movement for an additional 2 to 4 bars after the triggering signal occurs. This delay can see the equity rise 0.554% to 1.66% beyond the signal closing price of 226.135.
