After learned what the Stochastic is as well as learned how Stochastic is created, and now, let’s learn how to utilize Stochastic Oscillator as stocks trading/investing tool. As I have mentioned in the previous article, Stochastic Oscillator offers four of the very useful signals which are buy signal, sell signal, overbought signal, and oversold signal. These signals are produced by using the four available lines which are Fast Line (%K), Smoothed Line (%D), 20 Line, and 80 Line.
Let’s discuss about another technical analysis, the stochastic. As you may be already aware, It is well known that stocks trader/investor always try to find the “holy grail technical analysis indicator” which is an indicator that can tell when to buy and sell the stocks with 100% accuracy. However, as far as I know, there is no such indicator so it is useless to try to find it. Therefore, it is better to utilize the available indicators instead to do the useless effort to find the “holy grail indicator. Also that, we still can try to improve the certainty by combining two or more of the available indicators so our gain will be optimum.
As I mentioned before, the stocks trading is all about the market trends. It means that before do the stocks trading – either buy or sell the stocks –, the first thing to be checked is the current market trends. More precisely, we should check the current stocks market trends. We can do this stocks market analysis via stocks market index. Since doing my stocks trading in Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX/JKSE), I will do stocks market analysis by analyzing the IDX/JKSE index in this article.
In Stock Trading, Never Oppose The Market Trends
The sentence above is the most important things to follow in stock trading indeed. There will be nothing good as outcome from opposing the current market trends for sure. In contrary, the outcome will be always good if we follow the current market trends. Therefore the most important things in stock trading is to know the market trends and then follow it. It seems like an easy way, right? But, believe me, it is already hard to exactly know the market trends alone and it is even harder to follow it.
As I always mentioned, Candlestick Patterns are the very big help in my stocks trading venture. It is because candlestick offer the simple and easy way to read the market psychological condition. Knowing it can help us to gain optimum profit from stocks market for sure. I often utilize the candlestick patterns as buy or sell signals which tell me how to buy the stocks as well as how to sell the stocks in the right way and time. Candlestick patterns offer strong, medium strength, and weak buy signals as well as sell signals.

Of course, because of the Europe and USA financial crisis, it is very dangerous to do the stocks trading recently (despite how good our stocks analysis). The world-wide stocks market is in down trend currently so it is hard to make money from stocks recently. There are so many fears. However, as I mentioned before, if there is a fear, it is a time to collect the stocks since the price is very discounted. But, we need to be very careful since the fear may still strong and the price will go down further. We may catch the “falling knife” which will surely hurt us.
