### Stochastic Crossover System

The Stochastic Crossover System is a study which displays Up and Down Arrows representing Buy and Sell signals, on the chart based upon the crossover of the Stochastic Slow %K and Slow %D lines. To see how these lines are defined, refer to the study KD - Slow. The conditions that determine which signal, if any, is displayed are stated below.

Let the High Price and Low Price at Index \(t\) be denoted as \(H_t\) and \(L_t\), respectively. Let the Inputs **Arrow Offset Percentage** be denoted as \(k\). Horizontal lines are drawn at levels determined by the Inputs **Line 1 Value** and **Line 2 Value**.

For \( t > n_{FastK} + n_{FastD} + n_{SlowD}\) and if the Input **Use Buy/Sell Lines** = Yes:

For \( t > n_{FastK} + n_{FastD} + n_{SlowD}\) and if the Input **Use Buy/Sell Lines** = No:

#### Inputs

- Fast %K Length
- Fast %D (Slow %K) Length
- Slow %D Length
- Line 1 Value
- Line 2 Value
**Use Buy/Sell Lines**: When this is set to Yes, then Line 1 and Line 2 are used in the determination of the Buy and Sell signals. This is explained in more detail above.
