"Sell the highs and buy the lows" is the essence of FX trading.
Excess supply of currencies come and get sold. One of the indicators to determine overbought and oversold is the continuous positive and negative lines. If the positive and negative lines appear continuously, it may be overbought or oversold.

Results of backtesting after optimizing on the AUDUSD 1-hour chart. The period is from January 1, 2016 to January 1, 2020. Parameter set file is included in the EA file
This EA will place a buy order if the following conditions are met:
- Candlesticks have been bearish continuously for X days (X is defined by the parameter “Days”)
- RSI is below 30
On the other hand, the conditions for sell orders are as follows:
- Candlesticks have been bullish continuously for X days (X is defined by the parameter “Days”)
- RSI is above 70
This entry logic is checked only when a new candlestick occurs.
This EA closes the trade using a take profit stop loss specified in the parameters.
An ATR stop loss can also be used.
This EA allows you to trade fairly extreme overbought and oversold conditions.
For example, it is possible to sell only if the candlesticks have been bullish for 10 consecutive days. However, it is a fairly unlikely occurrence that the candlesticks would be bullish for 10 consecutive days. So, there will be fewer trading opportunities when setting such paraments, but the winning rate would probably be quite high also.
Another feature of this EA is that it utilizes RSI in the entry logic. This makes it easier to determine overbought and oversold conditions.
