As I have already mentioned, the strategy we are talking about today is built upon three indicators. They all fall within the oscillators group and they are the Relative Strength Index, the Commodity Channel Index and the Williams %R. You will need to add one after one. You can adjust the colours, thickness of the lines and periods. For the CCI, change the period to 20.

How to use the CCI RSI strategy of three on the IQ Option platform

The RSI, CCI and Williams %R should be visible under your price chart, one underneath the other. Your job now is to watch them carefully and await the favourable situation to occur. And what is the favourable situation in this case?

Opening long transactions with the CCI RSI strategy

There are three conditions you are expecting to happen.

  1. There are two horizontal lines drawn on the RSI oscillator window. Their values are 30 and 70. The RSI line should cross the 30 line from below.
  2. On the Williams %R window, you will see a few horizontal lines. The indicator should cross the -80 line from below and continue upwards.
  3. The CCI line is supposed to cut the -100 line from beneath.

So all three oscillators should cross lower lines on the way up. A signal is very strong when all three conditions are met. However, it is sufficient for a strategy to work when only two indicators are confirming the entry point.

Opening short transactions with the CCI RSI strategy

You can open a short position when only two indicators are giving signals to do so. Naturally, three are better, but it will not happen every time that all three confirm the trend reversal. In order to open a short transaction the lines of the oscillators should move downwards from higher parts.

  1. The RSI should cross the 70 line from the top.
  2. Williams %R cuts the -20 line from above.
  3. The CCI should cross the 100 line from the top and continue downward.

Pros and Cons of the CCI RSI Strategy

Pros ✅

  • Combines three powerful oscillators for better accuracy
  • Strong and reliable signals for trend reversals
  • Can be practiced on a demo account before real trading
  • Works well with major currency pairs

Cons ❌

  • May not be as effective with other asset types
  • Requires close monitoring of multiple indicators
  • Not every signal will have all three indicators confirming the trend reversal

Indicator Role in the CCI RSI Strategy
Relative Strength Index (RSI) Measures the strength of price movements and identifies overbought/oversold conditions
Commodity Channel Index (CCI) Determines the relationship between an asset’s price and its moving average, helping to identify trends and reversals
Williams %R Indicates the level of the close relative to the highest high for a given period, helping to identify overbought/oversold conditions


The CCI RSI strategy that combines the RSI, Williams %R and the CCI predicts the reversal of the trend. There are three oscillators in this strategy, although it is enough when you receive a signal just from two of them.

The signals obtained thanks to the trio strategy are pretty strong and reliable.

It is a good idea to use the CCI RSI strategy on the markets with high payout rates such as major currency pairs.

The duration of your transactions depends on the period of the candles you are using. It should be the same as your chart’s timeframe, in our opinion, 5 minutes works the best, but you can also try a different period. Adjust it accordingly.

Remember, there is an IQ Option practice account where you can implement every new strategy you have read about. You get virtual cash there so you have the possibility of opening risk-free trades. Practice as long as you need and switch to the real account when you are ready. Be sure to describe your experience with the CCI RSI strategy in the comments below the post.
