RSI Indicator Divergence Trading Setups

Divergence is one of the trade setups used by Forex traders. It involves looking at a chart and one more indicator. For our example we shall use the RSI indicator.

 

To spot this setup find two chart points at which price makes a new swing high or a new swing low but the RSI indicator does not, indicating a divergence between price and momentum.

 

Example:

In the chart below we identify two chart points, point A and point B (swing highs)

 

Then using RSI indicator we check the highs made by the Indicator, these are the highs that are directly below Chart points A and B.

 

We then draw one line on the chart and another line on the RSI indicator.
