The Aroon indicators move above and below the centerline (50) and are bound between 0 and 100. These three levels can be explained as follows: When the Aroon-Up is above 50 and the Aroon-Down is below 50, the bulls have an edge. This indicates a greater propensity for new x-day highs than lows. The opposite is true for a downtrend. The bears have an edge when Aroon-Up is below 50 and Aroon-Down is above 50.
