The Colored Stochastic Buy/Sell Metatrader 4 indicator is a momentum oscillator that allows traders determine when the dominant trend is about to reverse.
As an enhanced version of the widely used Stochastic Oscillator, the Colored Stochastic indicator adds colored modification to the %K line.
Meanwhile, it is a known fact that the Stochastic Oscillator parades two lines, which is also true for the Colored Stochastic indicator i.e. the dotted %D line, and filled colored %K line.
Buying and sell pairs with this indicator is utterly simple!
- Both lines that are found within the Colored Stochastic indicator are similar to those of the MACD indicator, therefore, one of the lines is a bit faster than the other, and in this case, the %K Period is faster than the %D period.
- The indicator is known to scale from 0 to 100, and in so doing, can offer clues as to when the market is overbought or oversold.
- When the %K line is filled red and lime colored segments, it is an indication that traders should be on the lookout for overbought or oversold market conditions.
