Contents[Hide]

The Aroon Oscillator function is calculated as the difference between the Aroon Up and Aroon Down indicators, with resulting values ranging from -100 to 100. An uptrend in stock price is indicated when the Aroon Oscillator value is positive. A downtrend is indicated when the oscillator value is negative. The further away the Aroon Oscillator value is from the zero line, the stronger the trend. Applications of the Aroon Oscillator include determining whether a stock is trending or not, and gauging the strength of the current trend.
