The last upward trend as indicated by oversold short term stochastics took us from 39 to 55. The one before that took us from 42-52. This should take us into the 50s before it's over! BUY, HOLD, GET RICH!! PS.-Why would anyone short a stock that has tested a support 4 times and bounced up EVERY TIME?! Answer: Inexperience!
I use the standard time period in moneycentral.com's slow stochastic analysis. They go into a long discussion about %K and %D, blah, blah. The default is 5 period %K and 5 period %D. The way I've really noticed that the moneycentral charts are shorter period is that they are much more sensitive than Clearstation's. So, I can see things go MACD Green a couple days before it actually happens at clearstation. But, of course, since the charts are more sensitive they are also more erratic and less smooth flowing. So, between moneycentral and clearstation I usually get reasonably good entry points.
