Specific Settings

I have often mentioned slow stochastics, but have failed to give the specific settings that I use. They are as follows: %K (15,3) %D (15,3,3). For parabolic SAR I use an acceleration of 0.032 and a max. acceleration of 0.2. I hope this helps so that you can be seeing the same things I am.

On a side note, it looks as though we are seeing a market in recovery. Often times the stock market leads a general economic recovery by several months. Let's hope that this is sustainable and I think it will be.

Have a good one,


  1. I find slow stochastics settings at 10,3 they have less lagg time I use them on a daily 6 month weekly 6 month and a 5 day 15 minute. On the daily 6 months it can take anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks to return to top or bottom of slow stochastics and a weekly 6 month chart of 2 to three months and a 5 day 15 minute about two hours from bottom to top or vice versa. That way on the 5day 15 minute chart if I am long I can watch a lower high and continue to stay in the position. Short I want to see a higher low. Think of going up the stairs to go long ( lower highs) Short ( down the stairs (higher lows ) and want to see on the daily 6 month chart slow stochastics turning up above 20-25 for entry long and weekly 6 month up above 20-25 also then my 5day 15 minute to see how long to stay in postion either long or short.

  2. That's great. What works best for you is the key. There are so many variables in technical analysis it can make your head spin. I will definitely check those settings out. Thanks!
