Stochastic Indicator: what is it and how does it work?

Stochastic Oscillator: Visual representation of stochastic oscillator with buildings and patterns, indicating market fluctuations.

It may sound complicated, but the Stochastic Oscillator (another oscillator obviously!) is a technical analysis tool that can actually be simple to use. While it has many uses, many traders use it to spot when a trend is about to end, making it perfect for timing entries and exits.

How does it work?

The Stochastic compares the closing price of a market with a range of prices from that market over a previous period (usually the last 14 days).

You don’t need to know how to work out the Stochastic yourself to use it, but if you’re interested, here’s how it’s calculated:

  1. Decide what period you’re going to use to calculate the Stochastic. This is usually 14 days but you can choose your own period if you prefer.
  2. Find the lowest low price and the highest high price from the period you’re using.
  3. Calculate the difference between the current closing price and the lowest low price.
  4. Now work out the difference between the lowest low price and the highest high price.
  5. Divide the difference between the current closing price and the lowest low price by the difference between the highest high price and the lowest low price.
  6. Multiply your answer by 100 to give yourself a percentage.

How to trade with the Stochastic

As we said, you don’t have to calculate the Stochastic to use it to trade. In fact, once you’ve added it to your trading platform (see the steps below for more info) using the Stochastic to time your trades couldn’t be much easier…

When the Stochastic rises above 80% it’s a sign that the market is overbought. That means that the market has overheated and the price could be about to drop.

On the flipside, if the Stochastic drops below 20% it’s an indication that the market is oversold. That means that the selling pressure is about to ease off and the price could start to rise.

Of course, the Stochastic is only an indicator. While it may help you make a buy or sell decision you shouldn’t rely on it 100%. You should always use a mix of indicators, experience and analysis when making a trade.

Skilling Summary:

FAQs

1. How does a Stochastic Indicator work?

The Stochastic Indicator works by generating a value between 0 and 100. An indicator reading above 80 suggests that the market may be overbought, implying a potential price drop. Conversely, if the reading is below 20, it indicates the market may be oversold, suggesting a potential price rise.

2. How is the Stochastic Indicator calculated?

The Stochastic Indicator is calculated using a specific formula involving the current closing price, the lowest price, and the highest price over a given period (usually 14 days). The result is multiplied by 100 to provide a percentage.

3. How can I trade with the Stochastic Indicator?

Traders often use the Stochastic Indicator to time their trades. When the indicator rises above 80%, it suggests the market is overbought, and the price might drop. If it falls below 20%, it indicates the market is oversold, and the price might rise. Remember, the Stochastic Indicator should be used alongside other indicators and trading strategies.

4. How can I add the Stochastic Indicator to my trading platform?

To add the Stochastic Indicator to your trading platform, you would typically find it in the indicator dropdown menu. From there, you can adjust the settings according to your trading strategy and preferences.
