StochRSI – Stochastic Relative Strength Index

The Stochastic RSI (StochRSI) is a technical indicator that combines elements of two well-known indicators, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) and the Stochastic oscillator. It’s designed to provide you with a more sensitive and dynamic representation of price momentum.

Range of the indicator

The StochRSI oscillates between 0 and 100, like the traditional RSI, but it incorporates the principles of the Stochastic Oscillator by comparing the RSI’s position within its range. Similar to the RSI, readings above 70 suggest overbought conditions, while readings below 30 indicate oversold conditions. You can use the indicator to identify potential trend reversals, pinpointing areas where an asset may be more likely to change direction. This indicator is particularly useful in volatile markets, offering you a more responsive signal to changes in price momentum. Like the RSI, the StochRSI helps you evaluate the strength or weakness of a trend.

StochRSI indicator via API.

Get StochRSI values via API

We provide API access to the StochRSI values for all of the most popular assets like stocks, crypto (try one of the popular exchanges like Binance) and forex, on all commonly used timeframes – from the weekly and daily all the way down to one minute intervals. You can also calculate the values on your own data using our manual method.

Get started with the stochrsi

Simply make an HTTPS [GET] request or call in your browser:

			[GET] https://api.taapi.io/stochrsi?secret=MY_SECRET&exchange=binance&symbol=BTC/USDT&interval=1h
		

The stochrsi endpoint returns a JSON response like this:

			{
  "valueFastK": 28.157463220370534,
  "valueFastD": 52.369851780456976
}

API parameters

secret
Required String
The secret which is emailed to you when you request an API key.
exchange
Required String
The exchange you want to calculate the indicator from: binance, binancefutures or one of our supported exchanges. For other crypto / stock exchanges, please refer to our Client or Manual integration methods.
symbol
Required String
Symbol names are always uppercase, with the coin separated by a forward slash and the market: COIN/MARKET. For example: BTC/USDT Bitcoin to Tether, or LTC/BTC Litecoin to Bitcoin...
interval
Required String
Interval or time frame: We support the following time frames: 1m, 5m, 15m, 30m, 1h, 2h, 4h, 12h, 1d, 1w. So if you're interested in values on hourly candles, use interval=1h, for daily values use interval=1d, etc.
backtrack
Optional Integer
The backtrack parameter removes candles from the data set and calculates the stochrsi value X amount of candles back. So, if you’re fetching the stochrsi on the hourly and you want to know what the stochrsi was 5 hours ago, set backtrack=5. The default is 0 and a maximum is 50.
backtracks
Optional Integer
The backtracks parameter returns the stochrsi value calculated on every candle for the past X candles. For example, if you want to know what the stochrsi was every hour for the past 12 hours, you use backtracks=12. As a result, you will get 12 values back.
chart
Optional String
The chart parameter accepts one of two values: candles or heikinashi. candles is the default, but if you set this to heikinashi, the indicator values will be calculated using Heikin Ashi candles. Note: Pro & Expert Plans only.
addResultTimestamp
Optional Boolean
true or false. Defaults to false. By setting to true the API will return a timestamp with every result (real-time and backtracked) to which candle the value corresponds. This is helpful when requesting multiple backtracks.
gaps
New Optional Boolean
true or false. Defaults to true. By setting to false, the API will ensure that there are no candles missing. This often happens on lower timeframes in thin markets. Gaps will be filled by a new candle with 0 volume, and OHLC set the the close price of the latest candle with volume.
results
New Optional String
number or max. Use this parameter to access historical values on the past X candles until the most recent candle. Use max to return all available historical values. Returns an array with the oldest value on top and most recent value returned the last.
kPeriod
Optional Integer

Default: 5

dPeriod
Optional Integer

Default: 3

rsiPeriod
Optional Integer

Default: 14

stochasticPeriod
Optional Integer

Default: 14

More examples

Let's say you want to know the stochrsi value on the last closed candle on the 30m timeframe. You are not interest in the real-time value, so you use the backtrack=1 optional parameter to go back 1 candle in history to the last closed candle.

				[GET] https://api.taapi.io/stochrsi?secret=MY_SECRET&exchange=binance&symbol=BTC/USDT&interval=30m&backtrack=1
			
Get stochrsi values on each of the past X candles in one call

Let's say you want to know what the stochrsi daily value was each day for the previous 10 days. You can get this returned by our API easily and efficiently in one call using the backtracks=10 parameter:

				[GET] https://api.taapi.io/stochrsi?secret=MY_SECRET&exchange=binance&symbol=BTC/USDT&interval=1d&backtracks=10
