If stock index price sets a new high, Aroon UP Indicator will be 100 - for each new high it will stay at 100. However, if stock index price moves down by a certain percentage, then that percentage is subtracted from the 100 and Aroon UP Indicator starts to move down. This means that if Aroon UP Indicator stays at 100 then stock index price is making new highs but when it starts to move down then stock index price is not making new highs.
If however stock index price is making new lows for a particular stock index price period then Aroon UP Indicator will be at zero
Aroon UP Indicator is a percentage of time between stock index price period and highest point.
If you use 10 stock index price periods for calculation:
Example 1: Highest stock index price was 1 day ago
Then if the highest point was yesterday, i.e. 1 day before then
10 stock index price periods minus 1 day= 9
9/10 in percent terms = 90
Aroon UP Indicator will be at 90
Example 2: Highest stock index price was 5 days ago
If the highest point was 5 days ago then
10 stock index price periods minus 5 = 5
5/10 in percent = 50
Aroon UP Indicator will be at 50
Aroon DOWN Indicator
This is calculated the same as Aroon UP Indicator but this time using the lowest point instead of the highest point.
When a new low is set Aroon DOWN Indicator is at 100 and when a new high is set it will move to zero.
