Slow Stochastic Oscillator

Description

The Slow Stochastics oscillator is similar to the Fast Stochastics oscillator, where the new %K line corresponds to the fast %D line, and the new %D line is computed as a moving m-period average of the new %K line. The slow version of the stochastics is  interpreted the same way as the fast version of the stochastics.

Formula

 %K(slow) = %D(fast)

%D(slow) line is an m-period simple moving average of the %K(slow) line.

Parameters

Fast and slow stochastics only have two parameters:

  • n, specifying the number of periods to consider in the calculation of the %K(fast) line
  • m, specifying for the %K(slow) line the number of periods over which the %K(fast) line should be averaged, and for the %D(slow) line the number of periods over which the %K(slow) line should be averaged.

Interpretation

Same as for Fast Stochastic.
