This is very good EA for newbies - for the traders who are learning Stochastic indicator about how it works. EA is trading on overbought/oversold levels of Stochastic indicator with the following parameters which were coded to be inside this EA:

  • the parameters of Stochastic indicator which were coded inside this EA: 5/3/3
  • overbought/oversold levels to be coded in EA: 80/20
ea_Stochastic_system - expert for MetaTrader 4
  • "Advisor analyzes the readings of the indicator Stochastic has, signal for buying is the intersection of the main and signal indicator lines in the oversold zone, a signal for the intersection of sales is the main indicator and signal lines in the overbought zone."

The coder proposed set file for this EA so we may use this EA on EURUSD M15 timeframe according to this set file/parameters.

I backtested EA just to see how it works - please find backtesting results and some charts with the ideas about overbought/oversold levels:

Stochastic is default/standard indicator in Metatrader 5 and it is located right here (look at the image):



===============

From Achelis "Technical Analysis from A to Z" :

Interpretation

The Stochastic Oscillator is displayed as two lines. The main line is called "%K." The second line, called "%D," is a moving average of %K. The %K line is usually displayed as a solid line and the %D line is usually displayed as a dotted line.

There are several ways to interpret a Stochastic Oscillator. Three popular methods include:

  1. Buy when the Oscillator (either %K or %D) falls below a specific level (e.g., 20) and then rises above that level. Sell when the Oscillator rises above a specific level (e.g., 80) and then falls below that level.

  2. Buy when the %K line rises above the %D line and sell when the %K line falls below the %D line.

    Look for divergences. For example, where prices are making a series of new highs and the Stochastic Oscillator is failing to surpass its previous highs.

Double smoothed stochastic Blau - indicator for MetaTrader 5

Double smoothed stochastic Blau - indicator for MetaTrader 5

This version can easily be tracked down. It was originally published in an TASC article : "Double-Smoothed Stochastic" by William Blau and was published way back in 1990.

Double smoothed stochastic of ratio - indicator for MetaTrader 5 

Double smoothed stochastic of ratio - indicator for MetaTrader 5

Unlike the double smoothed stochastic itself (that was originally published here : Double Smoothed Stochastic), the "ratio" part of this version can be traced back to Walter Bressert - he uses it as an oscillator, but since that way of calculating (ema(short)/ema(long)) is known for long time before that, only the ratio is added to the indicator name.

Double smoothed stochastic - indicator for MetaTrader 5

Double smoothed stochastic - indicator for MetaTrader 5

When it comes to double smoothed stochastic, there seems to be a lot of confusion there. Quite a few versions, and some people claiming to be inventors of it - some with and some without any traceable proof of being actually the inventors. In order to make a bit of order in the whole thing, few versions will be psted.
