StochasticOscillator

Summary

The Stochastic Oscillator is a momentum indicator that aims to show price reversals by comparing the closing price to the price range.

Remarks

Calculates the range between the high and low price during a given period of time. The current price is then expressed as a percentage of this range with 0% indicating the bottom of the range and 100% indicating the top of the range over this time period. Based on the theory that prices tend to close near the boundaries of the recent range.

Properties

Name Description
PercentD { get; } %D is 3 Period Exponential Moving Average of %K.
PercentK { get; } Calculation of %K is 100 multiplied by the ratio of the closing price minus the lowest price over the last N periods over the highest price over the last N minus the lowest price over the last N periods.
PersentsD { get; }
PersentsK { get; }
