Fast Stochastic

The Stochastic indicator built into TC2000 is a Full Stochastic, not a Fast Stochastic, but it can be used to reproduce a Fast Stochastic.

A Fast Stochastic can be reproduced using a Full Stochastic by setting the Period or %K of the Fast Stochastic to the Period setting of the Full Stochastic and setting the %K to 1. The %D setting would match that of the Fast Stochastic.

Template (simple)


Function Version (v17+, price)

STOC(k, 1, z)

Indicator Version (price)


General Version (v17+)

100 * ((w - MIN(w, k)) / (MAX(w, k) - MIN(w, k))


Function Version (v17+, price)

STOC(k, d, z)

Indicator Version (price)


General Version (v17+)

100 * AVG((w - MIN(w, k)) / (MAX(w, k) - MIN(w, k)), d)

Where w can be any formula which returns a numeric value.
Where k is the period of the stochastic or %K.
Where d is the period of the %D.
Where z is the number of Bars Ago. z can also be a date in the indicator version. May 4, 2015 would be (single quotes required): '05/04/2015'
The Average Type is assumed to be Simple. If you want to change this, it is best to use the generalized version or one of the following version of the %D which avoids the use of the built in simple moving average.


AVG(STOCk.1.z, d)

Change AVG to FAVG for a Front Weighted Average Type.
Change AVG to HAVG for a Hull Average Type.
Change AVG to XAVG for an Exponential Average Type.
