Building on this week’s post by Frank Hassler in which he defined a simple but elegant equity building strategy using weakness in the RSI2 to accumulate positions in SPY I ran additional RSI studies with the goal of identifying short term trading opportunities in SPY using a similar RSI support/resistance approach.

Since this study is designed as a pure exercise in RSI signal ability no additional signal confirmations or stops are utilized. This study trades Long only.
