As the Stochastic Oscillator is both a momentum indicator, and an overbought / oversold indicator, it can be used with both trending and ranging markets, and can be used in both short and long term timeframes. There are several ways of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator during trading.
One of the most popular ways is to enter a long trade when the stochastic line crosses above the signal line, and enter a short trade when the stochastic line crosses below the signal line.
Fast Stochastic Oscillator is a momentum indicator that measures the price of a security relative to the high/low range over a fixed period of time. The indicator values range between 0 and 100, with readings below 20 considered oversold and readings above 80 considered overbought.
