Smooth Stochastic



Smooth Stochastic Interpretation:

The SMI gives good divergence signals.

A sell signal is given when a bearish divergence appears. A bearish divergence occurs when the stock price makes new highs while the smoothed stochastic fails to make new highs.

A buy signal is given when a bullish divergence appears. A bullish divergence occurs when the stock price makes new lows while the smoothed stochastic fails to make new lows.

When %k and %d are under the 20 level, there is a bullish signal, when %k rises above %d and when the two indicators rise above the 20 level. When %k and %d are above the 80 level, it is a bearish signal when %k falls below %d and when the two indicators falls below the 80 level.

Smooth Stochastic, %D or Stochastic slow Calculation:

The calculation of the %D is similar to the stochastic rapid but with the smoothing the signals are more regular. %D(y) = 100 * (H(y)) with H(y): sum of C - PH(n) on X days ago C days: today's close PB(n) day: Lowest on n period PH(n): Highest on n period n:period.
