This indicator is an advanced version of the public available open-source cyclic smoothed RSI indicator. It provides fully automatic time frame highlighting by using a cyclically smoothed RSI from a higher time frame to indicate time frames with high probability signals. These high probability windows are highlighted when the indicator from the higher time frame is in dynamic overbought or oversold territory.

Overview and Examples

The following chart illustrates how it works and compares it against the basic RSI indicator. The csRSI indicator shows automatic highlighted periods with highlighted red and green time zones. These areas are based on another cyclic smoothed RSI indicator from a higher time-frame. The periods are marked red when the higher time-frame csRSI is above the upper bands and marked green when below the lower dynamic bands.

These colored periods in the indicator panel indicate the time to look for signals from the csRSI indicator. The derived signals are marked on the price chart. While the standard RSI would give too much whipsaw trades as indicated by the questions marks, however. the csRSI MTF version is able to filter the high probability signals while skipping false signals with a clear, objective procedure.

All three examples are setup with the basic standard settings and no additional parameter adjustments. The placed arrows on the price/indicator panel and the projection price areas have been added manually to visualize the signals for an discretionary trading  approach. They are derived based on standard technical indicator oscillator readings (signal turn above/below bands). Due to the nature of the indicator (ultra-smooth, sharp curves, dynamic bands), these signals are easy to spot, and will help to avoid whipsaw trades in volatile conditions.



The following chart is a close-up of the EUR/USD example above and shows the forex pair on a 20-minute time frame for the continuous period May 23, 2021 to May 27, 2021. The normal RSI is also plotted for comparison. Since the normal RSI would give too many unclear signals marked with "?", the csRSI first filters the high probability time frames according to the integrated multi time frame filter from the 2h chart. In addition, the smooth indicator line allows very precise detection of turns and divergences using the adaptive bands. In the 4-day period shown, there were 2 clear buy and sell signals. The normal RSI would not have been able to filter the wrong signals from the right ones.
