The i_daystochastic_v1_1 indicator is set for use on the M1 – D1 timeframe, while the indicator requires some time for calculation on first-run.
The core of the i_daystochastic_v1_1 indicator is the Stochastic indicator which implies that it is a member of the “Oscillator” family of the technical indicators.
The Stochastic indicator was originally designed by George Lane when he noticed that following price peaks in the market, the closing prices have a tendency to test the daily highs, and the same applies when price troughs, as the closing prices tend to test daily lows.
The i_daystochastic_v1_1indicator is a leading indicator owing to the fact that signals are generated before they appear on the chart.
