Stochastic In A Nutshell

When implementing the Stochastic, it is important to find the right time frame you want to have the indicator use to either smooth or vary the movement to fit your trading or investing style. It is typically said that anything 20 or less is becoming over sold and should be looked at for a possible trend reversal, and anything over 80 is over bought and should be looked at as another possible trend reversal. This particular tool only utilizes price and time to plot the data and does not take into account volume or flow of money.

Certainly using the Stochastic alone is not enough to give you a solid answer. Some complimentary data would be Standard Deviation, because this gives you a rough probability of an event happening within a defined data set. Another data point to use if you trade is the Value Area, which is based on the previous days trading information. These combined can give you that extra boost you may have been looking for in your trading or investing routine.

The Stochastic Oscillator is one of many different momentum indicators out there. This one specifically compares the closing price of an equity over a predetermined range of time. If you plot the tool, you will see that it operates on a 0 to 100 scale, with anything nearing 100 becoming overbought and anything nearing 0 being oversold. As with any indicator, these are not 100% accurate, but certainly get you in the ballpark when searching for buying and selling opportunities. This particular tool was developed by a person by the name of George Lane in the late 1950’s.

Closer Look at Stochastic
