Trading cryptocurrency market using Relative vigor index

Relative vigor index is a crossover oscillator indicator created by John Ehlers. Since Relative vigor index is a crossover oscillator indicator, it, therefore, ranges from a negative value to positive value with 0 being the centerline and two crossover lines, the blue line which is the Relative Vigor Index Line and the red line which is the signal line. Therefore, since the Relative Vigor Index is a crossover oscillator indicator, it is therefore based on overbought and oversold market condition when the two-line crosses over. Therefore, the sell or buy signal will take place when there is a crossover at below 0 or at above 0.
