How On Balance Volume (OBV) may show how money may be flowing into or out of a stock

OBV (On Balance Volume) measures buying and selling pressure. It was develop by Joe Granville in 1963. Joe Granville predict that volume precedes price.

OBV Calculation.

If the closing price is above the prior close price then:
Current OBV = Previous OBV + Current Volume
If the closing price is below the prior close price then:
Current OBV = Previous OBV  -  Current Volume
If the closing prices equals the prior close price then:
Current OBV = Previous OBV (no change)

It is very easy to use OBV. A rising OBV value show positive volume pressure that can lead to higher prices and vice versa.

Chaikin Oscillator is an indicator for indicator

Chaikin Oscillator  is develop by Marc Chaikin. Its measures the momentum of the Accumulation Distribution Line using the MACD formula. 


1. Money Flow Multiplier = [(Close  -  Low) - (High - Close)] /(High - Low)
  2. Money Flow Volume = Money Flow Multiplier x Volume for the Period
  3. ADL = Previous Accumulation Distribution Line + Current Period's Money Flow Volume
  4. Chaikin Oscillator = (3-day EMA of Accumulation Distribution Line)  -  (10-day EMA ofAccumulation Distribution Line)

Since Chaikin Oscillator is an indicator for indicator, it can be use to confirm other indicator such as RSI and MACD. Generally, buying bias is stronger when the indicator is positive area and selling bias is stronger when the indicator is negative. You can look for  crosses into positive area for bullish divergences and  negative area for bearish divergences.  Chaikin Oscillator  is not a stand alone indicator. You should use other indicator to confirm its buying or selling trend.

How Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) to indicates buying and selling pressure

Marc Chaikin is a developer of Accumulation Distribution Line and also Chaikin Money Flow indicator.  Chaikin Money Flow indicator measure the volume of money flow over time that simply sums Money Flow Volume for 20 or 21 days.

Calculation based on 21 days.

1. Money Flow Multiplier = [(Close  -  Low) - (High - Close)] /(High - Low)

2. Money Flow Volume = Money Flow Multiplier x Volume for the Period

3. 201-period CMF = 201-period Sum of Money Flow Volume / 20 period Sum of Volume

Interpretation of Marc Chaikin is based on oscillator. A move into positive chart indicates buying pressure, while a move into negative chart indicates selling pressure. You should add buffer below and above zero line to avoid noise signal.  You can set threshold a little above zero (+0.05) for buying signal and below zero (-0.05) for selling signal to reduce bad signal and reduce whipsaws. You can use Chaikin Money Flow as supporting indicator for RSI and MACD.

What happen when Coppock Curve cross above or below zero line?

Coppock Curve is a momentum indicator develop by Edwin “Sedge” Coppock, October 1965. Coppock used long term monthly data to identify buying or selling opportunities.  Coppock Curve use 10 day period of WMA , 14 day period of Rate of change and  11 day period of Rate of change. 
Coppock Curve = 10-period WMA of 14-period RoC + 11-period RoC
WMA = Weighted moving average
RoC = Rate-of-Change

It is  very easy to interpret Coppock Curve because its use monthly data and there is not much signal. You can use this Coppock Curve to signal bear or bull market in the long term. Most signal happen when coppock curve cross above zero line. When Coppock curve cross above zero its signal bull market and when its cross below zero its signal bear market.

How to use Commodity Channel Index (CCI) to indentify new trend

Commodity Channel Index (CCI) is an indicator develop by Donald Lambert. CCI is use to identify new trend and warn an extreme price.  CCI is high when the price is far above the average price. CCI is low when the price is far below the average price. Just like RSI indicator, it can also be use to measure overbought and oversell.

How to use CCI to identify new trend? Most of the activity in CCI happen between -100 and +100. When the CCI go beyond +100, its indicate strength and signal emerging new uptrend in the future. When the CCI go below -100, its indicate weakness and  foreshadow an extended downtrend in the near future. It is also can be use as bullish bearish divergences that signal  a potential reversal point
How to calculate CCI

CCI = (Typical Price  -  20-period SMA of TP) / (.015 x Mean Deviation)
Typical Price (TP) = (High + Low + Close)/3
Constant = .015

How to use Average True Range (ATR) to measure volatality

Average True Range (ATR) is an indicator developed by J. Welles Wilder. It is design to measures volatility. ATR is calculated based on 14 days. Its formula is

Current ATR = [(Prior ATR x 13) + Current TR] / 14
  - Multiply the previous 14-day ATR by 13.
  - Add the most recent day's TR value.
  - Divide the total by 14
Unlike MACD or RSI that give you buy or sell signal. ATR indicator is a unique way to measure the volatility of the stock. You can use ATR to measure the enthusiasm behind a move , reversal or breakout.
