Trading System based on the Linear Regression of the RSI Indicator
Applying the linear regression to the 2-Bar Relative strength index series creates an oscillator whose values vary between 0 and 100. The oscillator reaches low values after a decline in the underlying stock and reaches high values after a fast increase.
Linear regression analysis is used to analyze the relationship between two variables. In technical analysis, it is used to determine the trend of a time-series. A high value is an indication that the applied variable is trending up.
This trading strategy generates buy signals when the oscillator value (Linear regression applied to the 2-Bar RSI) becomes lower than 10. Besides this simple rule, a liquidity rule was added to prevent the strategy from buying illiquid stocks.
The sell rules of this trading system consists of a two stop rules: a 10% profit stop and a 100-Bar stop (This means that any position will be sold if the holding period exceeds 100 trading bars).
