Indicator Description

RSI Convergence Divergence indicator compares two MA lines calculated on the RSI value and the market price.

We have Divergence when both MA are moving in opposite directions:
- RSA MA rises and Market MA falls; or
- RSA MA falls and Market MA rises.

We have Convergence when both MA are moving in equal direction:
- RSA MA rises and Market MA rises; or
- RSA MA falls and Market MA falls.

This indicator gives equal signals for both long and short positions. For example, if there is a Convergence, it allows both opening long and short positions. It means that we can use this indicator for an additional filter. It cannot determine the position direction alone.

The indicator can be placed in Opening Logic Condition slot and in Closing Logic Condition.
