Stochastic oscillator (more commonly referred to as stochastic only) is one indicator that can also help you to find good momentum to determine entry points. This indicator was first developed by a doctor who is also a stock trader and technical analyst named George Lane in the 1950s.

Stochastic is also one indicator that is popular among traders because it is easy to understand and use. In addition, with a good method, this indicator can also generate profits with fairly good consistency. That is why this indicator is still popular today.

This indicator has two lines: the% K line and the% D line. For the sake of convenience to distinguish it, usually both are given different colors. The color commonly used is light blue for% K and red for% D. In addition,% D is also usually displayed as a dashed line. Of course you can change the colors according to your taste, the important thing is later you can tell which% K and% D.

The stochastic oscillator is one of my favorite indicators because it can support the indicators I use other than the oscillator and it will support my entry decision.

The stochastic oscillator is a powerful indicator and has good accuracy, but sometimes I use this indicator with a companion indicator like other technical indicators to be more confident in my decisions.

All indicators in my opinion are the same because good indicators are ones that are controlled by the user, for example, stocastics are also accurate and good indicators as long as they are well mastered.

We can use stochastic indicator for helps determine the overbought and oversold parts.
Don't forget to pay attention to the use of timeframes and market entries because trends at higher time frames are better, to avoid false signals.

What needs to be noted is that using the stockhastic indicator requires the support of other indicators, the combination produces a better signal.
Stockhastic often has bad signals / fake signals on small timeframes, especially when market conditions are strong in a trend.

This Stochastic indicator is ideal for trading any trading asset.
However, the selected time period must be adjusted to market conditions, you must change the settings to balance the indicator with timeframe parameters, short term or long term.
