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)

    • It would be difficult and the next line of action would be withdrawal of assets to a good alternative exchange or wallet and observe how the whole drama will end 
    • The recent turbulence in the market has resulted in significant losses and liquidations for many traders. While futures trading offers the potential for rapid portfolio growth, it also carries considerable risks, demanding both bravery and a strong belief in technical analysis (TA). However, despite my attempts, futures trading hasn't been my strong suit. Creating a resilient crypto portfolio doesn't necessarily mean diving into high-risk ventures like futures trading. It took me some time to realize that there are alternative, nearly risk-free methods to build a solid portfolio. Yet, the allure of quick profits in crypto often overshadows the patience required for these strategies. Whether you're involved in futures or spot trading, the market's unpredictability can lead to significant losses, as demonstrated by the recent downturn affecting BTC and most altcoins. Many traders found themselves unprepared, lacking sufficient USDT reserves for dollar-cost averaging (DCA) during market recoveries. Nevertheless, there is hope. For those looking to maximize profits while minimizing risks, products such as launchpools, launchpads, or PoolX offer promising opportunities. Available on various top centralized exchanges (CEX), these platforms involve staking assets like USDT, BGB, BNB, or OKB, depending on the exchange. One observation I've noted is that whenever an exchange announces a launchpool or launchpad event, the value of the exchange token tends to soar. This surge is fueled by users eager to participate and earn complimentary tokens. Following the event, participants can benefit from both the acquired tokens and the increased value of the exchange token. This approach has proven successful for me, as evidenced by the recent ENA launchpool event on Bitget. Have you explored similar opportunities in the past? Please feel free to share your experiences.
