## Stochastic Oscillator Formula

- Stochastic: = 100 x ((C – L)/(H – L))
- Signal: = average of the last three Stochastic values

where: C = The most recent closing price,

L = The **lowest price** traded of the **previous trading**** sessions, **

H = The **highest price** traded during the same -day period,

%K = The current value of the stochastic indicator

**%K is the current price of the security,**shown as a

**percentage of the difference between its highest and lowest point**over the time the oscillator is being used.

**%D is a 3-day average of %K**. This shows whether the current trend is continuing or changing.

**current close price in relation to a user-defined period’s high/low range**. The second line (known as %D) is a

**simple moving average of the %K line.**

## 5% Per Month With Stochastic Indicator by trading with vivek

- %K Length : 4 (default is 14)
- %K Smoothing : 3 ( default is 1)
- %D Smoothing : 3( default is also 3)
- Upper band 80, lower band 20 (remove middle band 50)
- Buy condition: both
**Blue & orange line is below 20**(lower horizontal line). - Trade around 3:20_3:25PM time.
