Ways to spot "The floating oscillator"

Many a times before the stochastic oscillator turns from oversold area to a rising trend (or overbought to a falling trend), the price may break out in the unexpected direction, for eg down when its already oversold, and then the stochastic will go horizontal for an extended time. I’ve googled about this, and found its called “The floating oscillator”. Anyhow, is there anyway to spot this floating oscillator? Or anyone read any book that teaches how to spot it? Or does anyone know another name for this? Is this simply covered under breakout trading strategies? But if I use stochastic oscillator mainly, can I learn signs on it that show whether its going to “float”?
