RSI technical indicator on IG markets


FatFoss

Question

Hi, I am currently working via IG markets API to implement strategies based on the RSI signal. Does IG markets have a technical indicator library? Else, how does IG markets calculate their RSI levels. Have tried a few external libraries but values do not tally. 

Or perhaps, where does IG markets stream their RSI levels from?

 

Thank You,

Hi @FatFoss

Thanks for reach out.

To calculate RSI, follow this equation:

RSI = 100 – 100/(1+(average up closes/average down closes))

The RSI calculation gives a figure between 0-100. Most analysts believe that an asset at around the 70 level is in overbought territory and may be in for a correction, while an asset at or near 30 is oversold and may be in for a rally.

Hope this helps!

    • Hello, Is any interest paid on "available" cash (not "margin") in a spread betting account? For example, if I held £10k in an account and had no open positions. The reason for asking is that I understand that proceeds from short sales in a CFD will receive interest (benchmark-2.5%), so was wondering if that applied to all cash, and couldn't find an answer on the web site.   Thanks.
    • Hi @Mark12 If you are trading shares, you will have the option to place a limit order to sell your existing position. When the market opens, please check if your order level is close to where the market is trading. All the best, OfentseIG
    • We have to wait until Friday to find out if the UK economy skirted a recession.   Richard Snow, foreign exchange analyst at Daily FX, tells IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor that after the third quarter contraction of 0.3%, there is a risk around the incoming data for the fourth quarter. Here he discusses GBP/USD as a trade to go short. But what if GDP comes in slightly higher? Richard says that is likely to be largely academic and that he believes the short trade will prevail.
