How do you calculate Slow Stochastic(25,3) Slow %D? I'd like to run
it in a computer program but I don't know the formula. I've
looked around the internet for the formula but haven't found it.
Thanks!

%K = 100[(CL#)/(H#L#)]
..where # being the number of days
%D (Fast) is a 3 period moving average of the %K
%D (Slow) uses another 3 periods

( I guess I should of said what the variables are ...)
L is the lowest low for the last # periods
C is the latest close
H is the highest high in the last # periods
... hope that helps !

xplorer, thanks for responding. When you write:
"%D (Fast) is a 3 period moving average of the %K
%D (Slow) uses another 3 periods "
I'm a little confused. I would guess you mean 3 DAY moving average
for the Fast?
What do you mean my "another 3 periods".
I'm so close I can taste it.

You are correct... it would be a 3 day moving
average for the example you are working on.
The reason I said "3 periods" is because technically
it could be used a a "monthly" period (instead of days)
... or weekly ... or yearly... or whatever "period"
want to use ...
...and the %D would be for an additional 3 day ... or
a 6 day average.
The site that rumpledone gave, explains it pretty good ...
Good luck ...
Hope that helps ...
