There are a lot of trading strategies using RSI; below mentioned is one of the most popular among trading community which involves buy after completing retracement for higher movement.

During the last few days, RSI had given a breakout by trading above 50 levels from below and made a high of 78. Thereafter, it is trading lower or retracing towards centre line placed at 50 levels, this behavior is called as ‘RSI PBB’ setup. RSI PBB is pull back buy setup which indicates, once RSI turns its tail upside after taking support from zone of 45-55 levels, target is previous swing high of RSI which was 78 or previous swing high of prices. Currently, the ONGC is going through this setup and we expect higher price movement towards Rs 110 levels in the coming days.
