Slow Stochastic

What is the definition of Slow Stochastic?

The Stochastic Oscillator is a momentum indicator that measures where the close is in relation to the recent trading range. The Stochastic Oscillator is made up of two lines that oscillate between a vertical scale of 0 to 100. The %K is the main line and it is drawn as a solid line. The second is the %D line and is a moving average of %K. The %D line is drawn as a dotted line. The Fast Stochastic is the average of the last three %K and a Slow Stochastic is a three day average of the Fast Stochastic.

Stochastics was developed by Dr George C. Lane in the late 1950s. It evolved as a combination of Relative Strength and Moving Average methods.

%D values over 75 indicate an overbought condition; values under 25 indicate an oversold condition. When the Fast %D crosses above the Slow %D, it is a buy signal; when it crosses below, it is a sell signal. The Raw %K is generally considered too erratic to use for crossover signals.
