Aroon UP Indicator is a percentage of time between xauusd price period and highest point.

If you use 10 xauusd price periods for calculation:

Example 1: Highest xauusd price was 1 day ago

Then if the highest point was yesterday, i.e. 1 day before then

10 xauusd price periods minus 1 day= 9

9/10 in percent terms = 90

Aroon UP Indicator will be at 90

Example 2: Highest xauusd price was 5 days ago

If the highest point was 5 days ago then

10 xauusd 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.
