Aroon indicator was developed by Tushar Chande to determine the price trend of a stock and also to understand how strong is the trend of the stock price. There are two lines in the indicator. The green line shows uptrend and the red line shows the downtrend. The green line is known as Aroon Up and the red line is known as Aroon Down. When any of the lines touch 100, it shows the trend is going to reverse. Similarly, when any line touches zero it also shows the imminent trend reversal. A combined reading of up and down line gives the real market trend. Zerodha Kite charts plot this indicator for traders.
