Would depend what algo you are trying to train but consider instead of using RSI maybe use (Is RSI < 20) as a binary input. While I can't claim to have great results my results did seem to improve when I did things like that.

I am sure that works(especially given the last decades data) because it is basically a large % drop over a short period of time feature.

You could just calculate that directly though as a feature. A rolling 2 week window with a certain threshold -% return as a binary input. No one would call that a technical indicator though. It is just feature engineering from the data.

I already got bored with the astronomy class lol. Just not worth studying over De Prado's book.

I only used RSI as an example. You can obviously make your features anything you want. (C > 200MA, Inside Day, New 20 Day High etc). I should have made the point that sometimes binary feature like that can be more successful than continuous ones as the continuous can involve so much noise.
