Stockastics is used to indicate an overbought/oversold market. Fast Stochastics consists of two lines, %K and %D The %K line measures, as a percentage, where the current close is, in relation to the lowest low over the observation period (in this case 14 days). This is shown on a scale of 0 to 100, where 0 is the observation period low, and 100 is the observation period high. The %D line is a Simple Moving Average of the %K.Trading signals are generated by the crossover of these two lines.
