Knowing exactly what to expect from Stochastics, if at any point you plan to add it to your own system, will affect your trading results dramatically.

Currency Pairs : Any

Graphic : Any

Indicators : Stochastic (14, 3, 3)

Entry Conditions

Buy when the faster Stochastic line crosses above, above the slower moving Stochastic line.

Exit Conditions

Sell ​​when the opposite situation (the next crossover) occurs and right after this open an opposite position.
