How to use the Aroon Indicators in trading

How to use the Aroon Indicators in trading

The Aroon Indicators are a pair of momentum indicators – the Aroon Up value and Aroon Down value – named after the Sanskrit word for the first light of day. Each indicator represents a standardized value for the strength of the upward or downward pressure on a stock, which analysts can compare to determine if there is a trend emerging. Aroon looks at the latency between highs for certain rolling time periods, with 25 days being the standard time frame.

The Aroon indicator is calculated using the number of days since the most recent (25-day) high and low. The values are put on a scale between 1-100 using a multiplier which takes the length of the time frame into account. 50 is the median value, and if the Up or Down is over 50, it may indicate significant pressure in that direction if the other one is below 50.

When the Aroon Down is above the 70 line and the Aroon Up is below the 30 line, it could be an indication that the security is in a downtrend. Traders may consider selling the security, selling it short, or exploring put options. When Aroon Up is above the 70 line and Aroon Down is below the 30 line, it could be a signal that the security is in an uptrend. Traders may consider going long the security or exploring call options.

If the Up is above 50 and the Down is below 50, it indicates that bullish momentum is present, and the opposite indicates bearish momentum. The two can also be compared to each other regardless of where they lie in relation to 50: an Aroon Up over an Aroon Down signals a bullish sign, while Aroon Down over Aroon Up is bearish. The Aroon indicators can be combined into one scale by flipping the values around and making the scale go from 100 to -100; this is also known as the Aroon Oscillator.

The Aroon Indicators are similar to the Directional Movement Index (DMI) and the Aroon Oscillator is similar to the Average Directional Index (ADX). The Directional Movement Index (DMI) combines the average directional index (ADX), plus directional indicator (+DI), and minus directional indicator (-DI) into one graph that depicts the strength of positive or negative market forces. By plotting the directional indicators together with the ADX line, traders can get a sense of overall movement and determine a trend’s strength and direction.

Traders use technical indicators like Aroon Indicators to make predictions about future prices. They verify how well a specific indicator works for a particular security. No single indicator works well for all securities, but they should not be discounted. The Aroon indicators should be used with other indicators, price analysis, and tools to mitigate risk and misleading signals.
