Waiting for Stochastic Hook with bullish weekly candle

This is a simple indicator that attempts to catch a reversal. It helps me to buy low, but it is definitely not foolproof.

How to setup this indicator.

  • Use your favorite charting software. I like to use InvestingNote.com for Singapore and HK stocks.
  • Select Weekly chart time frame
  • Select Stochastic indicator
  • Set to 9,3,3
  • Make %D invisible

The above is a weekly chart of the STI over the last 18 months.

Stochastic hook takes place when stochastic indicator makes a “hook” in the oversold area. This is used together as a  combination with bullish white candle on the price chart.

Price may continue to go lower, but at least I am assured of buying at a reasonable price. I like to apply it on my blue chip favorites to average down if necessary.

I am now waiting for a white candle to form. This will happen with a friday’s closing price is higher than the last monday’s opening price.

Remember, patience is a virtue. Sit tight and don’t be itchy fingers!
