The Relative Strength Index is one of the most commonly used technical indicators when trading. It can give an indication of whether a coin is over or undervalued in relation to the previous 14 candles in the selected timeframe.
Moving averages can provide a signal of the trend of a coin. They can also act as support and resistance with price breaking above a significant moving average suggesting the start of an uptrend. If price breaks below it can signal the start of a downtrend.

In this rule, the first condition identifies if the coin is below the 50 level, also known as the "fair value level", in a 15-minute timeframe. This aims to only buy coins that are not yet overvalued and potentially have some additional upside.
The second condition also uses the RSI and requires an increase of 5 within a 5-minute candle. This signals that the coin's momentum is increasing to the upside and buying pressure has also increased.
The third condition uses the moving average (MA) 100 and the MA 200, both in a 1-hour timeframe. The rule condition requires that the MA 200 is lower than the MA 100, signalling that the coin is in an uptrend and price has been increasing.
The fourth condition acts as trend protection with the MA 200 in a 4-hour timeframe having to be lower than price. This prevents the rule from trying to buy any extended downtrends where price falls below the MA 200.

The exit for this rule uses a fixed stop loss and take profit.
The take-profit is set to trigger a sell when price increases by 6% from the price at which the rule bought.
The stop-loss is set to trigger a sell once price decreases by 6% from price at which the rule bought.
The risk:reward of this rule is 1. This means that for the rule to break even, for every trade that the rule hits the stop loss, the rule will have to have one trades execute at the take profit. This results in the rule requiring a win ratio of at least 50% for the rule to be profitable.
When backtested against Ethereum / USDT from May 1st 2022 to August 15th 2022, the rule achieved a net profit of 58.3% with a 83.3% win ratio.
