# Blau TStochastic

Author: Andrey N. Bolkonsky

Stochastic Indicator (smoothed q-period Stochastic) by William Blau is based on Stochastic Indicator (see Momentum, Direction, and Divergence: Applying the Latest Momentum Indicators for Technical Analysis).

It shows the distance between the close price and lowest price of the q bars. The numerical value of Stochastic shows the price position relative to the lowest price of the period (q bars), the values are >=0.

• WilliamBlau.mqh must be placed in terminal_data_folder\MQL5\Include\
• Blau_TStoch.mq5 must be placed in terminal_data_folder\MQL5\Indicators\

Calculation:

The following formula is used for the calculation of q-period Stochastic:

stoch(price,q) = price – LL(q)where:

• price – close price of the current timeframe;
• q – number of bars, used in calcualtion of Stochastic;
• LL(q) – lowest price of the q bars.

The smoothed q-period stochastic is calculated as follows:

TStoch(price,q,r,s,u) = EMA(EMA(EMA( stoch(price,q) ,r),s),u)

where:

• price – close price;
• q – number of bars, used in calcualtion of Stochastic;
• stoch(price,q)=price-LL(q)- q-period Stochastic;
• EMA(stoch(price,q),r) – 1st smoothing- exponentially smoothed moving average with period r, applied to Stochastic;
• EMA(EMA(…,r),s) – 2nd smoothing – EMA of period s, applied to result of the 1st smoothing;
• EMA(EMA(EMA(…,r),s),u) – 3rd smoothing – EMA of period u, applied to result of the 2nd smoothing.

Input parameters:

• q – period, used for the calculation of Stochastic (by default q=5);
• r – period of the 1st EMA, applied to stochastic (by default r=20);
• s – period of the 2nd EMA, applied to result of the 1st smoothing (by default s=5);
• u – period of the 3rd EMA, applied to result of the 2nd smoothing (by default u=3);
• AppliedPrice – price type (by default AppliedPrice=PRICE_CLOSE).

Note:

• q>0;
• r>0, s>0, u>0. If r, s or u =1, smoothing is not used;
• Min. rates =(q-1+r+s+u-3+1).
