RVI XAUUSD Technical Analysis and RVI XAUUSD Signals

Developed by John Ehlers

The RVI combines the older concepts of technical analysis with modern digital signal processing theories and filters to create a practical & useful indicator.

The basic principle behind it is simple –

  • XAUUSD Prices tend to close higher than they open in up-trending markets and
  • XAUUSD Prices close lower than they open in down-trending markets.

The momentum (vigor) of the move will therefore established by where the xauusd prices end up at the close of the candlestick. The RVI plots two lines the RVI Line and the signal Line.

The RVI index is essentially based on measuring of the average difference between the closing and opening gold price, and this value is then averaged to the mean daily trading range and then drawn.

This makes the index a responsive oscillator that has quick turning points that are in phase with the xauusd market cycles of xauusd prices.

XAUUSD Technical Analysis and Generating XAUUSD Signals

The RVI is an oscillator. The basic method of interpreting the index is to use the crossovers of the RVI and the Signal Line. Signals are generated when the there is a crossover of the two lines.

Bullish Signals - a buy xauusd signal occurs when the RVI crosses above the Signal Line.

Bearish Signals - a sell xauusd signal occurs when the RVI crosses below the Signal Line.
