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)

    • Summary: Still expecting another low for indices, the current move up part of a corrective rally. Normally I look for indices lead from stocks, however some stocks are displaying strength and some weakness so this mix bag is showing up in the Nasdaq 100 pattern as a probable wave four triangle at the current low.

    • A lot of transformation is happening to BNB at the moment with the integration of bitcoin lightning network and Optimism especially with opBNB birth but that has not reflected in users confidence primarily because of the many negativities surrounding the platforms operations in North America and Australia. BGB on the other is gaining traction and value because a lot of investment is going into the development of the ecosystem recently with the injection of $100M and also improved partnership deals
    • I know we still have a lot to do to attract massive crypto adoption but steps like those taken by Binance and bitget in the wake of what happened to FTX is commendable in righting the wrongs of the lapses and loopholes that exist pre-FTX saga. But more still needs to be done to restore confidence to the level it was pre-2020 bear market like consistent regulatory framework and regular security updates by crypto platforms
