RSI !!! HELP ! Setting indicator alerts for above 70 and below 30 RSI




I am struggling to set an alert for the RSI indicator, As stated above I would like to create an alert for when the RSI goes above 70 and below 30 on a 5 min timeframe

As it stands I have selected indicator then

Resolution 5 mins ( as I believe that is the 5 min time frame ?)

Price ( I am not sure what to set it at) 

Indicator (indicator parameters ? I am not sure what this means? I placed it at 2 presuming it was for when it hits over or below for 2 mins?

Then I have selected either below or above and crosses, with OR not AND 

and then alert me immediately 


My problem is with these optimisations which to my best knowledge I believed would just ping me an alert when it goes over the 70 or below the 30 RSI has resulted in lots of alerts when the RSI is no where near the 70 or 30 . I know this is obviously something I have done wrong but I dont know how to just achieve my desired effect.


Can anybody help me please 


Thanks David

My prev answer was obviously... stating the obvious... sorry for that.

'Resolution' should stay at 5 min.
'Price' means if you are looking at Ask price, Bid price or Mid of both of previous two - if you don't know which one to set - leave it at 'Mid'

Indicator params for RSI:
'Period' - means how many {Resolution} data points (candles) are taken into this alers - in you case 1 point = 5 min - so set it to the lowest value (2) - otherwise you'll be spammed
and then you have 'over', 'under'. 'crosses' + value - this is self explanatory

Be careful with 'crosses' value - because during 'longer' timeframes - like 5 min - RSI can cross the line 30/70 many times - because indicators are calculated in real time - you can notice that indicator of the 'current' candle is moving up-down with the price change - it'll stop when the candle {Resolution} period is finished.

'Alert me' - this is crucial for you.
If you leave it with default "Immediately' value - it means that alert will be generated every time RSI meets you conditions - so if during your 5 min candle, RSI is crossing 30/70 threshold (and we know it will), you'll be notified.
The safest approach for you is to set it to 'At the end of the candlestick' + 'Once' - in this configuration you should be notified max twice (once for each candle)

    • Content streaming business Netflix has announced that it will restructure its film unit to make fewer movies each year. Part of the process will also see it centralise decision-making.  Jeremy Naylor | Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 31 March 2023  It will combine units that produce small and midsize pictures, a change the company says will result in a handful of layoffs. Netflix is slightly higher all-sessions on the IG platform on this Friday morning, holding on to recent gains that we've seen for the stock. It's restructuring its film group to make fewer movies each year and try to centralise its decision making. Now this is a cost cutting exercise, so it's no real surprise that we've seen the markets wanting to hold on to the gains that we've seen at Netflix. Bloomberg is reporting that Netflix will combine its units that produce small and mid-size pictures, a change it says will result in some layoffs. Share price chart Let's take a look at the share price chart and I think you can see that the recent gains we've had way down here, the lows that we saw back on the 13th of March at $285. We're currently trading at 33975. As I said, just opened all-sessions on the IG platform with a small rise on the day. Lisa Nishimura, who led Netflix into stand up comedy and original documentaries, will depart after more than 15 years at the company. And Ian Bricke, a vice president of the film group, is also leaving after more than a decade. Bricke helped make the Kissing Booth, the movie franchises that Netflix has produced. So you can see at the moment we're up by a margin of almost half of 1%. But I think the bottom line is, it's holding onto the gains. This is essentially a cost-cutting exercise and a reduction of risk. But what it means for the long-term remains to be seen. It's all about Netflix and the competitors and the competitors are now getting into sports which Netflix doesn't yet do.
