One of the major problems of the aroon indicators is the arbitrary time period.
If you vary the period, from say 25 to 15 days, you get a second diagram that appears to be, essentially, offset from the first, therefore giving completely different signals!
If you vary the period to fit the past data (!), there's no assurance that it will fit future data.

There is no "holy grail" when it comes to indicators. The best thing is to use multiple indicators for confirmation. It is also important to understand the formula used to calculate each indicator, to avoid using linear variations of the same algorithm which, of course, would yield the same result instead of valid confirmation.

All Indicators are useful. The problem is that you should know how to use, i mean how you read the indicator you are using. I have a set up of twelve indicators. I use all at the same time one by one. The results are fine.
Thanks and good luck to all.

According to the experience I've has this indicator, which I appreciate, It's very helpful to use when taking a trade position, not that much good when exit the trade.

How can I calculate strong up trend (1 and 5 on graph.) length? How many days or hours?

Which indicator or something else can be used for confirmation of up trend period length?

 

Very good indicator. Good results.
