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" :
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:
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.
Buy when the %K line rises above the %D line and sell when the %K line falls below the %D line.
More detailed explanation about this indicator we can see from this small article (from MT5 documentation/help file): Stochastic Oscillator
