Stochastic Oscillator (STO) is momentum indicator & it oscillates between 0 & 100. It’s developed by George C. Lane in late 1950. Using this you can find a stock under accumulation or distribution.

Description :

Stochastic Oscillator (STO) gives momentum of stock. It’s work good with 14-days time period. You can very time period & find out which time period works better for you.

Stochastic Oscillator (STO)  have two component %K &  %D. Now a day  people using blue & red line to display.

You can get most reliable signals looking divergence. With positive divergence & %K cross above %D  you can buy a stock & with negative divergence & %K cross below %D you can sell stock.

How to Calculate?

 Here we calculate FAST STO (14, 3)

              %K =  [  KK / DD  ] * 100

 Where   KK =  ( Today’s Close) – (Lowest Low in %K periods )

 DD= ( Highest High in %K Periods ) – (Lowest Low in %K periods )

 For 14 days %K  first find out Highest High ( Say 20 )  & lowest Low ( Say 14 ) for last 14 days. If today’s close price was 18 then

              %K = [ (18-14) / (20 – 14 ) ]*100 =  66.67

 Now calculate a moving average of  %K  with time period specified for %D. This moving average called %D

              %D = 3 –days moving average of  %K

 Now we calculate  FULL  STO ( 14, 3, 3 )

             %K =  3 –days moving average of  %K  of FAST  STO

             %D = 3 –days moving average of  %K  of FULL  STO
