Stochastic Stock Indicator Overbought and Oversold Levels

Stochastic oscillator stock indicator is used to look for overbought/oversold stocks trading signals. Overbought levels are above 80% level and oversold levels are below 20% level.


The key is to not only look at Stochastic oscillator stock indicator when the %K or %D lines touch or cross overbought/oversold, but also when they cross over and back through these levels.


Just as with other stock trading momentum indicators such as RSI stock indicator the Stochastic oscillator stock indicator can stay inside the overbought and oversold levels for some time. When this stock trading stochastic oscillator indicator stays within these levels for a long time it indicates strong upward stock trend (overbought) or strong downward stock trend (oversold).


When the stochastic lines cross back below or above these overbought and oversold levels it is usually a good indication of an upcoming stock trend reversal.


A stock trader can look for further stock trading signals to make the oversold or overbought levels more reliable if:


Buy Stock Trading Signal Using Stochastic Oscillator Oversold Levels


  • Before Buying, the %K and %D lines turn upward from below 5%.

  • A reading that is floating near 5% means that stock trading bears are in control and there is selling of stock. A stock trader should wait for the Stochastic Oscillator to move back above 5% as a sign that the selling pressure is easing.


The Buy stock signal is confirmed when the stochastic oscillator stock indicator moves above oversold, then after a while returns to oversold but this time moves up immediately without staying at the overbought.

Sell Stock Trading Signal Using Stochastic Oscillator Overbought Levels


  • Before Selling, the %K and %D lines turn down from above 95%.

  • A reading that is floating above 95% means that stock trading bulls are in control and there is buying of stock. A stock trader should wait for the Stochastic to move below 95% as a sign that the buying pressure is easing.

  • The sell stock signal is confirmed when the stochastic moves below overbought, then after a while returns to overbought but this times moves down immediately without staying at the overbought.

Looking at different stocks trading chart time frames when using oversold and overbought levels can also help to determine the correct entry strategy when opening a stock trade.

The main theory is to trade with the stocks trading market trend. Always double check the stock trading signals with the longer term stochastic oscillator indicators to confirm stock trading signals on the shorter stocks trading chart time frame periods.
