1. Aroon Up & Down: What A Crypto Trader Should Know
Aroon Up & Down is an efficient tool used in the crypto market. It is based on the Aroon Indicator created by Tushar Chande. It helps crypto traders predict when a cryptocurrency might shift from going up or down to moving sideways.
2. How Does Aroon Up & Down Work: The Basics
The Aroon Up & Down indicator is an oscillator that ranges from 0 to 100. It has two lines: Aroon Up and Aroon Down. Its default value is 14-day.
The Aroon Up line measures how close the current crypto price is to the highest price it reached in the last 14 days. If it just hit a new high, the Aroon Up value shows 100.
The Aroon Down measures how close the current crypto price is to the lowest price in the last 14 days. If it just reached a new low, the Aroon Down value shows 100.
If there were no new highs in the last 14 days, Aroon Up is at 0. Similarly, if there were no new lows, Aroon Down is at 0.
3. How to Calculate Aroon Up and Down: The Simplest Way
|Aroon Up = [(Number of periods – Number of periods since the highest high) / Number of periods] * 100Aroon Down = [(Number of periods – Number of periods since the lowest low) / Number of periods] * 100
Aroon up looks at how many periods it has been since the highest high in the chosen timeframe. It subtracts this from the total number of periods and then divides by the total number of periods. Finally, it multiples by 100 to get a percentage. Aroon Down does the same but for the lowest low.
