The 2-period Relative Strength Indicator (RSI) strategy was developed by Larry Connors. It is based on the principle that market prices return to a mean after significant highs or lows. A buy signal is generated when the 2-period RSI goes below 5 and the market price is above the 200-period MA. A long position is closed when the market price closes above the 5-period MA. In this backtest, we used the components of the Russell 3000 index as a stock universe. The condition 'price ca sma(5)' in the formula for closing a position reads as 'price crossed above the 5-period simple moving average'.
