RSI Dynamic Position Averaging Strategy

Author: ChaoZhang, Date: 2024-02-06 09:44:05



This strategy combines Relative Strength Index (RSI) and martingale position averaging principles. It initiates a long position when RSI goes below the oversold line, and doubles down the position if the price continues to decline. Profit taking is achieved with small targets. This strategy is suitable for high market cap coins in spot trading for steady gains.

Strategy Logic

  1. Use RSI indicator to identify market oversold conditions, with RSI period set to 14 and oversold threshold set to 30.
  2. Initiate first long position with 5% of account equity when RSI < 30.
  3. If price declines 0.5% from the initial entry price, double the position size to average down. If price declines further, quadruple the position size to average down again.
  4. Take profit at 0.5% increment each time.
  5. Repeat the cycle.

Advantage Analysis

  • Identify market oversold conditions with RSI for good entry points.
  • Martingale position averaging brings down average entry price.
  • Small profit taking allows for consistent gains.
  • Suitable for high market cap coins spot trading for controlled risks.

Risk Analysis

  • Prolonged market downturn can lead to heavy losses.
  • No stop loss means unlimited downside.
  • Too many averaging downs increases loss.
  • Still has inherent long direction risks.

Optimization Directions

  1. Incorporate stop loss to limit max loss.
  2. Optimize RSI parameters to find best overbought/oversold signals.
  3. Set reasonable profit taking range based on specific coin volatility.
  4. Determine averaging pace based on total assets or position sizing rules.


This strategy combines RSI indicator and martingale position averaging to take advantage of oversold situations with appropriate averaging down, and small profit taking for steady gains. It has risks that can be reduced through stop losses, parameter tuning, etc.
