Higher Highs & Lower Lows Stochastic Metatrader 5 Forex Indicator

An article titled “Higher Highs & Lower Lows,”by Vitali Apirine in the February 2016 edition of the Technical Analysis of Stocks and Commodities (TASC) magazine introduced the momentum based trading indicator system HHLLS (higher high, lower low stochastic).

The indicator was designed to spot emerging trends, outline correction periods, and forecast reversals.

As with a lot of indicators that fall into this category, alert signals on the HHLLS can also be generated by spotting divergences and crossovers.

Bearing in mind that the Higher Highs & Lower Lows Stochastic indicator is an oscillator, it can also be used to spot overbought & oversold regions.
