Welles Wilder this simple indicator has never stopped to be a popular tool for traders. In its essence RSI follows a simple formula to measure the speed by which the price is changing. When the price keeps going up at an accelarating rate the market might be overbought and a reversal might come next. By calculating the RSI as the market develops this strategy can trigger buy or sell signals based on the RSI going too high overbought or too low oversold.
The difference is that after the RSI is calculated a stochastic oscillator is calculated over the resulting RSI values. When a market is trending upwards for a long time the RSI values tend to go and stay high. The stochastic oscillator will compare the RSI values from the last period with eachother. This results in the StochRSI indicator therefor indicate how high or low the RSI values have been historically over the last n periods.
