Quantina Advanced RSI Indicator
One of the most popular technical analysis indicator is the Relative Strength Index (RSI) is an oscillator that measures current price strength in relation to previous prices. The RSI is a highly recommended tool for traders, it can be used to:

How to use RSI Indicator
The (RSI) Relative Strength Index Indicator is going to measure price changes over the past XX periods (where XX being the input that you can enter into the indicator. Default is 14.)
If you set RSI of 14 periods, it will measure the strength of this unclosed candle's price movement against the previous 13 closed candles (for a total of the last 14 periods). If you use RSI Indicator on 28 periods, you will be measuring this candle's strength or weakness to the last 27 periods. The higher or more periods you use, means "slower" the indicator will appear to react to recent price changes. (Lower number of periods = more signals).
As a momentum oscillator, RSI Indicator will read a value between 1 and 100, and it will show you how strong or weak price has been over the observed number of periods. If RSI is reading above 70, traders will often construe that to mean that price action has been strong, and the asset being charted may be "Over Bought".

- RSI Sell Signal — Sell when the RSI crosses below the overbought line (70).
