The oscillator indicator can give an idea of whether the market is overbought or oversold. Overbought conditions mean the situation when prices are considered high enough at that time. This condition is often followed by a decrease in prices. Conversely, oversold conditions mean that prices are considered low enough at that time, and are often followed by rising prices.

When the oscillator indicator shows overbought indication, all you need to do is wait for the sell signal confirmation. Conversely, if the oscillator shows oversold indications, wait for a buy signal confirmation.

But you need to note that it is not always overbought or oversold conditions followed by reversing the direction of price movements. There are times when the indicator continues to be in the overbought or oversold area for some time but the price continues to move in the previous direction. To work around this, you must adjust the signal provided by the indicator with the ongoing trend. In an uptrend, look for only buy signals, whereas in a downtrend, look for only sell signals. This method is relatively safer.

Your discussion of the Oscillator technique is very interesting and what I know of this technique is indeed the technique inherent in the MT4 & MT5 platform and also as a basic indicator for beginners to learn trading, by understanding these indicators beginners can better know the characteristics of this indicator

The oscillator also often gives false signals, because when the price is oversold it does not mean the price will go up and when it is overbought it is not necessarily the price will go down, so we need a filter again so we don't get stuck on fake signals on the oscillator. Can use other indicators or at best can use support and resistance areas

the default indicator oscillator is the best indicator in my opinion Because using an oscillator-based indicator such as the stochastic or rsi is something that can make us get a lot of profit

if we want to use this indicator, of course we must first understand what this indicator is for and how to use it properly and correctly, so that we can use it optimally.

using an oscillator is when you can make all the markets calmer because when we can't use indicators that are for the saturation point then we will have a hard time determining the saturation point

Regarding the oscillator indicator, it is indeed one of the best functions because when you can use an oscillator, be it cci or stochastic, it is indeed one of the most important so that you can find out how the saturation point is

this indicator is basically to determine the saturation point where you can see a reversal in a currency pair

Regarding the oscillator indicator and you can continue to judge and you can use the stochastic oscillator when you want because its function is very accurate for the saturation point
