About Stochastic Oscillator

  Late 1950 Dr. George Lane developed this indicator as a momentum indicator to realize Resistance and Support levels. This indicator based on closed price and historical movement and reaction of the market. According to Dr. Lane idea as a developer, this indicator to be used with cycles, Elliott Wave Theory and Fibonacci retracement for timing.

Stochastic oscillator included two lines: the First one is the actual value of the oscillator for each session, and the second one reflecting its three-day SMA (Simple Moving Average). Price is thought to follow momentum, so the intersection of these two lines is considered to be a signal that a reversal may be in the works, as it indicates a large shift in momentum from day to day. The stochastic oscillator is always between 0 and 100. This makes it a useful indicator of overbought and oversold conditions. As you can see below, technically this is the way how this indicator works, however today we will talk about how we can use it and not going into mathematics calculation.

Stochastic oscillator is useful indicator of overbought and oversold conditions.
