Select this toggle to display the selected stocks stochastics, calculated using a 10-day period. Stochastics give an indication of the stocks last closing price relative to the stocks recent trading range. On uptrends stocks tend to close near the high of the days trading range. As the trend matures, stocks tend to close away from the highs of the day. During a downtrend stocks will most likely close near the low of the trading range. The stochastic indicator attempts to find trend reversals by measuring points in a rising trend where closing prices are near the lows of the day and vice versa. A low stochastic indicates that a stock is trading near the bottom of its recent trading range, where a high stochastic indicates that a stock is trading near the top of its recent trading range.
