4-In-1 Stochastic Strategy

Developer: FXCM

When you want to trade with Stochastics, you know hitting cross signals at the right time is imperative. Let the 4-In-1 Stochastic Strategy do the work for you.

The 4-In-1 Stochastic Strategy will send buy or sell signals dependent on the crossing of the %K or %D indicating whether it’s been oversold or overbought. You can select what to do with opposing signals if you already have an open positon. You also have the option of turning trading and alerts on or off.

There are four ways the Stochastic can be read to generate signals:

  1. %K/%D Cross While Overbought/Oversold: Will send a sell signal when the %K crosses below %D while both %K and %D are above the Overbought level and will send a buy signal when the %K crosses above %D while both %K and %D are below the Oversold level.
  1. %K/%D Cross: Will send a sell signal when the %K crosses below %D and will send a buy signal when the %K crosses above %D, regardless of their relation with the Overbought or Oversold levels.
  1. %K Overbought/Oversold Cross: Will send a sell signal when %K crosses below the Overbought level and will send a buy signal when %K crosses above the Oversold level.
  1. %D Overbought/Oversold Cross: Will send a sell signal when %D crosses below the Overbought level and will send a buy signal when %D crosses above the Oversold level.
