The Lane's stochastic oscillator is an improvement of the well-known stochastic indicator. It was developed by Georges Lane in the 1950s. It is based on the calculation of the difference between the daily price and the lowest low divided by the highest-lowest price range. The indicator values vary from 0 to 100.
Lane's stochastic is used to determine overbought and oversold markets and to generate appropriate entry and exit points. In fact, acting upon the principle that prices tend to reach the extremes of the recent range before reversing, overbought markets occur when very high levels (Lane used an 80% limit) are reached. An oversold market occurs when values under 20% are reached.
Reliable signals are generated by the indicator when a divergence occurs. Positive divergence, when the indicator moves higher while the security price declines, and negative divergence when the indicator moves lower while the security price increases.
The Lane's stochastic function name is 'lane_stochastic_oscillator'. It has only one argument: the range period (generally between 5 and 21 bars).
