Welcome to the portal once again, let me have this opportunity to introduce you to the one and only KDJ indicator. This particular indicator is a technical indicator used mostly in stock trading, it is used to predict current stock trends and patterns. You will hear most stock pundits calling it a random index due to it’s practicality for mapping short term stocks.
On this short article we will cover some of the most popular questions that traders are asking; How does the KDJ Indicator work? How do you calculate the values of the KDJ Indicator? Is KDJ Indicator a good indicator?
How does the KDJ Indicator Work?
According to Vasiliy Chernukha, in an article that he published on IQ option the KDJ indicator consist of three lines, the K-line, the D-line and J-line hence it’s name “KDJ”. The K and D line are very similar to those you will see when using the stochastic oscillator. while the J line always represents the divergence formed by the K and D line. Analysts currently using this tool often see the divergence as an emerging trading opportunity.

How do you calculate the Values of the KDJ indicator?
The KDJ is calculated based on the highest price, the lowest price and the closing price. Of which the K value, the D value and J value is respectively formed at a point on the coordinate of the index. Thus an infinite number of these points are connected for the appearance of lines when you look at the indicator.
The main goal of the KDJ index is to obtain the immature state of the stochastic index value by calculating the proportional value between the highest price, the lowest price and the closing price that has appeared in a specific period. To dig a little bit deeper on how these values are verifies please look into China Postdoctoral Fund Project (No. 2015M572730).
