A built in stochastic is the core of the Stochastic Floating Overbought/Oversold Levels Metatrader 5 forex indicator.
This special version allows the use of only two price combinations.
All prices are already included and this version further extends the indicator by adding “floating level.”
The Stochastic forex indicator does not adopt fixed levels as a condition for overbought and oversold market conditions, instead it adopts “floating levels” which are self-adjusting to the changes of the stochastic indicator.
In addition, the stochastic becomes adaptive, meaning we have an adaptive extended stochastic.
Don’t use this indicator in isolation, instead, combine with a trend following forex indicator or price action techniques.
