RSC Trading System

The Relative Strength Channel (RSC) trading system is a completely mechanical trading system for capturing short term moves in the market indices. The system uses a proprietary trading model to identify high probability, short-term trades under current market conditions.


  • An accuracy of nearly 90% in short-term forecasts for the market indices.
  • Historically tested and proven over 30 years of financial markets.
  • Correct on over 86% of all trades in the Nasdaq 100, over 87% in the S&P 500, and over 86% in the Dow Jones Industrial Average during the years between 1990 and 2021.
  • Since 1990, the system has captured over 5400 points in the Nasdaq 100, over 1400 points in the S&P 500, and over 8600 points in the Dow Jones Industrial Average.
  • Trades the most popular and actively traded indices, including the Nasdaq 100, S&P 500, Dow Jones Industrial Average, Phlx Semiconductor Sector Index, S&P 400 Midcap, Russell 2000, and many more.
  • In addition to market indices, can be traded using numerous compatible trading vehicles, including Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), E-mini Futures, Mutual Funds, and Options.
  • Has been profitable in both bull markets and bear markets.
  • Can be used as a standalone trading system or a market timing tool.
  • Provides a systematic way of entering and exiting a trade in the market based upon predetermined rules and logic, eliminating the psychological and emotional aspects of doubt, second-guessing, and hesitation.
  • Trades near the close of the market session using end-of-day data and a few simple indicators. No need to watch the markets all day for intraday signals and alerts.
  • In addition to the official rules, includes conservative and aggressive models for traders with different styles and risk tolerance levels.
  • The conservative set of rules offsets risk and increases the percentage of profitable trades to over 92% for some markets.
  • The aggressive set of rules expands exposure to the market while at least doubling the total net profit for the tracked indices; and in some markets increases the net profit by three or four times.


  • All system rules and program logic are fully disclosed.
  • No optimization or curve-fitting. The system uses the exact same rules and parameter settings for all markets and time frames.
  • Includes an in-depth, 85-page workbook containing detailed system rules, trade examples, and performance records. The workbook contains complete strategy performance and analysis reports, providing clear and detailed tables, charts, and diagrams.
  • Ready-to-use code for TradeStation, MetaStock, AmiBroker, NinjaTrader, MultiCharts, and Wealth-Lab platforms is included on CD-ROM. Tradestation requires version 2000i or later, including version 9. MetaStock requires version 8 or later.
  • Detailed system rules allow for easy porting to other trading platforms and charting applications.
  • Full, life-time technical support in a timely manner.

It should not be assumed that the methods, techniques, or indicators presented in these products will be profitable or that they will not result in losses. Past results are not necessarily indicative of future results. Examples presented on these sites are for educational purposes only. These set-ups are not solicitations of any order to buy or sell. The authors, the publisher, and all affiliates assume no responsibility for your trading results. There is a high degree of risk in trading.

Hypothetical or simulated performance results have certain inherent limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not actually been executed, the results may have under- or over-compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown.
