To calculate the Stochastic Oscillator in Fortran, you can follow these steps:

- Define the variables that you will need for the calculation. These will typically include variables to store the high and low prices for a specified period, the current closing price, and the period length.
- Create a loop to iterate through the price data for each time period. Within the loop, calculate the highest high and lowest low prices over the specified period.
- Calculate the Stochastic Oscillator using the formula:

%K = ((current closing price - lowest low price) / (highest high price - lowest low price)) * 100

Where:

- %K is the Stochastic Oscillator
- current closing price is the closing price for the current time period
- lowest low price is the lowest low price over the specified period
- highest high price is the highest high price over the specified period

- Optionally, you can also calculate the %D line, which is a moving average of %K. This can be calculated using the formula:

%D = moving average of %K over a specified period

- Repeat steps 2-4 for each time period in your price data to calculate the Stochastic Oscillator values for each period.

Here is a simplified example code snippet in Fortran to calculate the Stochastic Oscillator:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 |
program stochastic_oscillator real :: high(100), low(100), close(100), k(100) integer :: period, i ! Set the period length period = 14 ! Main calculation loop do i = period, 100 ! Calculate the highest high and lowest low over the period high(i) = maxval(high(i-period+1:i)) low(i) = minval(low(i-period+1:i)) ! Calculate %K k(i) = ((close(i) - low(i)) / (high(i) - low(i))) * 100 end do end program stochastic_oscillator |

This code snippet calculates the Stochastic Oscillator (%K) for each time period based on the high, low, and close prices. You can customize this code to handle your specific data and period length requirements.
