Let us add the Relative Strength Index and Stochastic indicator to the same charts.

Buy Nifty when 3 mins EMA goes above 13 mins EMA and 13 mins EMA is also above 34 mins EMA. Confirm the RSI and Stochastics are both in an uptrend and have not reached the overbought zone of 80. Exit Nifty longs when RSI and Stochastics both start coming down from the overbought zone.

Sell Nifty when 3 mins EMA goes below 13 mins EMA and 13 mins EMA is also below 34 mins EMA. Confirm the RSI and Stochastics are both in a downtrend and have not reached the oversold zone of 20. Exit Nifty shorts when RSI and Stochastics both start moving up from the oversold zone.
