The Adaptive Stochastic Oscillator (ASO) was first introduced in December 1992 in STOCKS & COMMODITIES magazine. The article was called "Stochastic RSI And Dynamic Momentum Index" by Tushar Chande. He was an author of the article and creator of the indicator.
ASO is an attempt to optimize the stochastic oscillator. It is also a method to calculate the last close price ratio to the maximum/ minimum for a definite period of time.
The main feature of indicator is that ASO take into account the current volatility. The faster price moves, the less the oscillator window becomes and its sensibility grows. Due to it the adaptive stochastic oscillator unites advantages of both quick and slow stochastic indicators.
