Aroon indicator was developed by Tushar Chande in 1995. Aroon is an indicator system that determines whether a stock is trending and how strong the trend is. 'Aroon' means Dawn's Early Light in Sanskrit. Tushar chose this name as the indicators are designed to reveal the beginning of a new trend.
Aroon indicator is similar to other momentum oscillators in terms of being used to time the market entry into a trend. In simple language, the indicator consists of the "Aroon up" line, which measures the strength of the uptrend, and the "Aroon down" line, which measures the strength of the downtrend.
Like most momentum oscillators, Aroon appears on a chart in a separate window below the price chart. It is plotted against a middle line of 50 that differentiates the strength of the trend.—Aroon-Up and Aroon-Down are complementary indicators that measure the elapsed time between new 25-day highs and lows, respectively.
They are shown together so chartists can easily identify the stronger of the two and determine the trend bias. The Aroon Up and the Aroon Down lines fluctuate between zero and 100, with values close to 100 indicating a strong trend and values near zero indicating a weak trend. The lower the Aroon Up, the weaker the uptrend and the stronger the downtrend, and vice versa.
Why you should Buy Indian Bank
The main assumption underlying this indicator is that a stock's price will close regularly at new highs during an uptrend, and regularly make new lows in a downtrend. The indicator focuses on the last 25 periods but is scaled to zero and 100. Therefore, an Aroon Up reading above 50 means the price made a new high within the last 12.5 periods. A reading near 100 means a high was seen very recently.
Indian Bank has recently given breakout by trading above resistance line placed around Rs 72 levels. Thereafter, the price is rising continuously. At the same time, trend identifying indicator, Aroon has given buy signal as Aroon-Up is trading above Aroon-Down. Aroon-Up is trading above 50- mark, suggesting the uptrend to continue. Recent price movement is supported by moving averages also, as the prices are trading above 20 SMA and 50 SMA whereas bullish crossover of them is adding conviction for bullish movement.
