## A Complete Guide to Stochastic Indicator

Last Updated on May 21, 2020

Have you ever looked at a chart and noticed the Stochastic indicator is overbought.

So, you immediately go short because you think the market is about to reverse.

And here’s what happened next…

The market stalls.

Pause for a while.

…and then it blasts off higher!

Clearly, you got stopped out of your trade and you wonder to yourself…

“Wtf just happened?”

Well, you’re not alone.

That’s why I wrote this Stochastic indicator trading guide to teach you everything you must know about Stochastic, how to use it, how NOT to use it, and why.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

Or if you prefer…

You can watch this training video below:

## **Stochastic indicator explained: What is it and how does it REALLY work**

Instead of me explaining what the Stochastic indicator is about, here’s what the founder of Stochastic has to say…

“Stochastics measures the momentum of price.

If you visualize a rocket going up in the air – before it can turn down, it must slow down.

Momentum always changes direction before price.” – George Lane

The Stochastic is an indicator that measures momentum in the markets.

And for you math geeks out there, here’s the formula to calculate it…

*%K = (Current Close – Lowest Low) / (Highest High – Lowest Low) * 100*

*%D = 3-day SMA of %K*

*Lowest Low = lowest low for the look-back period*

*Highest High = highest high for the look-back period*

*%K is multiplied by 100 to move the decimal point two places*

Are you confused?

That’s why this image below will explain better (using an 8 period Stochastic)…

**Stochastic indicator settings**

Now just a quick one.

The settings on my Stochastic indicator is (20, 1, 1) and it’ll show a single line instead of the traditional 2 lines.

Here’s what I mean:

Now there’s nothing magical about it.

I use 20-period because there are 20 trading days in a month, and a single line is enough to interpret what it means.

Does it make sense?

Great! Then let’s move on…

## **2 DEADLY mistakes traders make when using the Stochastic indicator — and how you can avoid it**

This is important.

If you can avoid these mistakes, then you’ll save yourself hundreds if not thousands of dollars in the long run.

- Going long just because the market is oversold
- Thinking the market will reverse because you spot a divergence

**1. You go long just because the market is oversold**

The Stochastic is an indicator that measures momentum in the markets.

So, when it’s at overbought level (above 80), it means the market has strong bullish momentum.

And the last thing you’d want to do is “blindly” go short just because Stochastic is overbought.

As you can see, if you went short just because the market is overbought, it would have been a painful experience.

Because the market can remain overbought/oversold for a long period of time – far longer than your account can withstand it.

Next, let’s move on to the 2 nd deadly mistake made by traders…

**2. You think the markets will reverse because there’s a divergence**

*A divergence occurs when the price makes a higher high but the indicator shows a lower high — which means the 2 signals diverge from one another.*

According to trading textbooks, courses, and etc. they will tell you that when you spot a divergence, it means a reversal is about to occur.

But that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Here’s an example:

As you can see, there’s a divergence but the market didn’t reverse.

In fact, it continued to head lower for quite a while.

**Now at this point…**

You’ve learned the 2 biggest mistakes traders make when using Stochastic and how to avoid it.

Now you’re probably wondering:

“So, what is the correct way to use the Stochastic indicator?”

Well, that’s what I will share in the next section.

## **How to use the Stochastic indicator and “predict” market turning points**

If you haven’t realized by now…

The reason why traders fail with Stochastic is because…

You don’t use it in the context of the market.

You’re probably thinking:

“What does it mean?”

If you look at the earlier examples, most of the common mistakes can be avoided if you’re not trading against the trend.

Then let’s see how you can adopt this principle and use Stochastic to “predict” market turning points.

- If the price is above 200-period moving average (MA), then look for long setups when Stochastic is oversold
- If the price is below 200-period moving average (MA), then look for short setups when Stochastic is overbought

Here’s an example:

This doesn’t mean you “blindly” go short when Stochastic is overbought.

But it can help you anticipate where the pullback might end, so you can better time your entry and trade with the trend.

Can you see how a simple tweak makes a BIG difference?

## **How to use the Stochastic indicator and filter for high probability trading setups**

I’m not sure about you.

But whenever I put on a trade, I want to know where I am in the “big picture”.

Because if you want to find high probability trades, then you want to be trading with the higher timeframe trend — and not against it.

So how do you do it?

Well, you can use the Stochastic indicator to filter your trades.

Let’s say you want to go long on the 1-hour timeframe.

But before you do so, check the daily timeframe and see where you are in the “big picture”.

You want to make sure the daily timeframe is not in a downtrend with Stochastic overbought.

Because that’s where the market is likely to head lower — and you don’t want to be long.

Most of you might want to go long based on the chart below…

If you look at the higher timeframe, you’ll realize something is not right.

The higher timeframe is in a downtrend and Stochastic is at overbought level.

So chances are, the market is likely to continue trading lower, and you don’t want to be long.

Here’s what you should do instead:

If the Daily timeframe is in a downtrend with stochastic overbought…

You’ll look for trading setup on the lower timeframe – to go short.

Your entry trigger can be a bearish breakdown from Support on the 1-Hour timeframe.

USD/CHF on Daily timeframe with Stochastic overbought:

USD/CHF on 1-Hour timeframe breaking down from support:

Can you see how it works?

## **How to use the Stochastic indicator to better time your entries**

Now unlike chart or candlestick patterns where the entry can be subjective, the Stochastic indicator doesn’t give you that problem.

That’s because there’s no discretion for the entry.

It’s either YES you enter, or NO you stay out.

So if you’re the type of trader that is always unsure whether you should pull the trigger, then this entry technique is for you…

- If you have a long bias, then go long when the Stochastic line crosses above 20
- If you have a short bias, then go short when the Stochastic line crosses below 80

Here’s an example:

Now, what does this means?

The Stochastic indicator measures momentum.

So, when you see the Stochastic crossing above 20, it’s telling you bullish momentum is stepping in (and vice versa).

And one important thing:

Don’t mistake this as a trading strategy because it’s not.

Rather, it’s an entry trigger to get you into a trade.

A BIG difference.

## **Why you don’t need to use Stochastic indicator in a range market**

If you search the internet, books, courses, and etc, they will tell you the best time to use the Stochastic indicator is in a range market.

Because you can wait for the price to be overbought before shorting (and vice versa)

And from the looks of it, it seems that Stochastic indicator can pinpoint the tops/bottoms of a range with deadly accuracy.

But here’s the thing:

Do you REALLY need a stochastic indicator to do so?

Because all you need to do is…

And voila! You get the same result.

Here’s what I mean:

As you can see… you’ve accomplished the same thing as what Stochastic did — but with less clutter on your charts.

Does it make sense?

**Frequently asked questions**

**#1: How can I use Stochastic Indicator to tell me if the market is in a range?**

You don’t need to use the Stochastic Indicator to tell you if the market is in a range or not. Because if you find that the price keeps retesting the highs or lows multiple times, then the market is in a range.

Alternatively, when the market is in a range, you’ll observe that the Stochastic Indicator tends to reverse near the 70 area and the 30 area. For example, if the market is in a range, it tends to find support when the Stochastic value is at 30 and it tends to find resistance when Stochastic value is at 70.

**#2: Is there a good way to combine the Stochastic Indicator with other indicators?**

Yes, it’s possible. Stochastic Indicator is useful to identify area of value on your chart and to serve as an entry trigger.

The first way to go about it is to combine the Stochastic with a moving average:

- Use a moving average to determine the trend
- Use the Stochastic to identify the area of value in the trend
- Then use candlestick patterns to serve as an entry trigger

Alternatively, you can:

- Use a moving average as a trend filter
- Use support and resistance as an area of value
- Then use Stochastic Indicator as your entry trigger

In this case, Stochastic is acting as an entry trigger. So if the market is in a downtrend and the price is at resistance, you can look to sell when the Stochastic crosses below 70.

**Conclusion**

So here’s what you’ve learned today:

- The stochastic is an indicator that measures momentum
- Don’t go short just because Stochastic is overbought because it can remain overbought for a long time
- Spotting a divergence doesn’t mean the market will reverse. It fails more often than not in a trending market
- In a downtrend, overbought level on Stochastic can help you time when the pullback might end (and vice versa in an uptrend)
- The Stochastic can serve as an entry trigger to go long when it rises above 20 (and short when it cross below 80)

Now here’s my question for you…

## Stochastic Oscillator Definition

## What Is A Stochastic Oscillator?

A stochastic oscillator is a momentum indicator comparing a particular closing price of a security to a range of its prices over a certain period of time. The sensitivity of the oscillator to market movements is reducible by adjusting that time period or by taking a moving average of the result. It is used to generate overbought and oversold trading signals, utilizing a 0-100 bounded range of values.

### Key Takeaways

- A stochastic oscillator is a popular technical indicator for generating overbought and oversold signals.
- It is a popular momentum indicator, first developed in the 1950s.
- Stochastic oscillators tend to vary around some mean price level, since they rely on an asset’s price history.

#### Stochastic Oscillator

## The Formula For The Stochastic Oscillator Is

%K = ( C − L14 H14 − L14 ) × 1 0 0 where: C = The most recent closing price L14 = The lowest price traded of the 14 previous trading sessions H14 = The highest price traded during the same 14-day period %K = The current value of the stochastic indicator \begin

%K is referred to sometimes as the slow stochastic indicator. The «fast» stochastic indicator is taken as %D = 3-period moving average of %K.

The general theory serving as the foundation for this indicator is that in a market trending upward, prices will close near the high, and in a market trending downward, prices close near the low. Transaction signals are created when the %K crosses through a three-period moving average, which is called the %D.

## What Does The Stochastic Oscillator Tell You?

The stochastic oscillator is range-bound, meaning it is always between 0 and 100. This makes it a useful indicator of overbought and oversold conditions. Traditionally, readings over 80 are considered in the overbought range, and readings under 20 are considered oversold. However, these are not always indicative of impending reversal; very strong trends can maintain overbought or oversold conditions for an extended period. Instead, traders should look to changes in the stochastic oscillator for clues about future trend shifts.

Stochastic oscillator charting generally consists of two lines: one reflecting the actual value of the oscillator for each session, and one reflecting its three-day simple moving average. Because price is thought to follow momentum, 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.

Divergence between the stochastic oscillator and trending price action is also seen as an important reversal signal. For example, when a bearish trend reaches a new lower low, but the oscillator prints a higher low, it may be an indicator that bears are exhausting their momentum and a bullish reversal is brewing.

## A Brief History

The stochastic oscillator was developed in the late 1950s by George Lane. As designed by Lane, the stochastic oscillator presents the location of the closing price of a stock in relation to the high and low range of the price of a stock over a period of time, typically a 14-day period. Lane, over the course of numerous interviews, has said that the stochastic oscillator does not follow price or volume or anything similar. He indicates that the oscillator follows the speed or momentum of price. Lane also reveals in interviews that, as a rule, the momentum or speed of the price of a stock changes before the price changes itself. In this way, the stochastic oscillator can be used to foreshadow reversals when the indicator reveals bullish or bearish divergences. This signal is the first, and arguably the most important, trading signal Lane identified.

## Example Of How To Use The Stochastic Oscillator

The stochastic oscillator is included in most charting tools and can be easily employed in practice. The standard time period used is 14 days, though this can be adjusted to meet specific analytical needs. The stochastic oscillator is calculated by subtracting the low for the period from the current closing price, dividing by the total range for the period and multiplying by 100. As a hypothetical example, if the 14-day high is $150, the low is $125 and the current close is $145, then the reading for the current session would be: (145-125)/(150-125)*100, or 80.

By comparing current price to the range over time, the stochastic oscillator reflects the consistency with which price closes near its recent high or low. A reading of 80 would indicate that the asset is on the verge of being overbought.

## The Difference Between The Relative Strength Index (RSI) and The Stochastic Oscillator

The relative strength index (RSI) and stochastic oscillator are both price momentum oscillators that are widely used in technical analysis. While often used in tandem, they each have different underlying theories and methods. The stochastic oscillator is predicated on the assumption that closing prices should close near the same direction as the current trend. Meanwhile, the RSI tracks overbought and oversold levels by measuring the velocity of price movements. In other words, the RSI was designed to measure the speed of price movements, while the stochastic oscillator formula works best in consistent trading ranges.

In general, the RSI is more useful during trending markets, and stochastics more so in sideways or choppy markets.

## Limitations Of The Stochastic Oscillator

The primary limitation of the stochastic oscillator is that it has been known to produce false signals. This is when a trading signal is generated by the indicator, yet the price does not actually follow through, which can end up as a losing trade. During volatile market conditions this can happen quite regularly. One way to help with this is to take the price trend as a filter, where signals are only taken if they are in the same direction as the trend.
