Volume Based Technical Studies and Indicators
Below is a list of volume-based technical indicators (studies) that are available with our charts.
Volume Technical Analysis
Modulated Volume - Volume activity typically follows certain predictable patterns throughout the trading day. High levels are prevalent immediately after the opening and toward the close. Lower values are usually seen around noon.
Up/Down Volume - When analyzing volume, it is important to identify the prevailing price trend that dominates a specific timeframe. An analysis of market prices is not complete without a consideration of the associated volume action. Conversely, volume data should never be analyzed in isolation. Only a careful consideration of both factors will give you a clear picture of the current market.
Volume Moving Average - A volume moving average (VMA) represents the average volume generated over a given period of time. For example, a 9-period VMA represents the average volume produced over the past 9 periods, including the present bar.
VMA Displaced - The Displaced VMA (Volume Moving Average) takes the current volume moving average and shifts it forward or backward in time by a specified number of bars. The mathematical principles of a moving average will always make it follow or lag the actual volume data. By centering the VMA, you can obtain a more accurate picture of the VMA in relation to the volume.
SBV Oscillator - The SBV oscillator calculates the difference between the volume that is generated as the index advances and the volume that is generated as the index moves lower.
SBV Flow - The SBV Flow is modified version of Selling & Buying Volume Oscillator which more focused on the highlighting periods of positive (bullish) and negative (bearish) money flow.
SBV Histogram - The SBV Histogram is an advanced version of the SBV Oscillator that applies MACD Histogram principles to the SBV Oscillator.
Selling & Buying Volume - We define Buying Volume as any volume that is generated as the price moves upward. We define Selling Volume as any volume that is produced as the price moves lower.
Market Volume Oscillator - The MVO is based on the PVO (Percentage Volume Oscillator) and Stochastics, one of the most popular volume and price technical studies. Combining the power of two different indicators in one provides the means to analyze price and volume at the same time.
Advance/Decline Momentum Volume - Decline Momentum volume is volume of stocks (issues) that have fallen in price compared to their close on the previous bar. Advance Momentum volume is volume of stocks (issues) that have risen in price compared to their close on the previous bar.
Advance/Decline Volume - Declines Volume is the running total (cumulative sum) of the number of shares traded of all those securities in the declines group for a given time period. Advances Volume is the running total (cumulative sum) of the number of shares traded of all those securities in the advances group for a given period.
Advance/Decline Volume Oscillator - The AD volume oscillator is widely used to assess market breadth and also as an indicator of market strength. When advancing issues outpace declining issues, the advance-decline line moves higher. Conversely, the A-D line moves lower when the number of declining issues is greater than the number of advancing issues.
Advance/Decline Volume Ratio - The A/D volume ratio is the line at which you can see at each point of time (horizontal scale). It is the result of dividing the advancing volume by the declining volume (vertical scale).
Advance/Decline Volume Percentage Oscillator - The Advance/Decline Volume PO (Percentage Oscillator) is a percentage version of the Advance/Decline Ratio. The Advance/Decline PO (the same as the Advance/Decline Ratio) permits you to measure and analyze advancing stocks in relation to the declining stocks.
Accumulation / Distribution - The Accumulation/Distribution Line was developed by Marc Chaikin to measure the cumulative flow of money into and from an index or security. The Accumulation/Distribution Line can be compared to the OBV (On Balance Volume), which adds or subtracts volume, depending on the closing price.
Chaikin Money Flow - The Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) Oscillator is based on the Accumulation/Distribution by normalizing it to the easy to analyze range between 0% and 100%. The Chaikin Money Flow Oscillator is used in technical analysis as measurement of buying and selling pressure with a purpose of generating trading signals.
Chaikin Oscillator - The Chaikin Oscillator (named after its creator) is the next step in the accumulation/distribution concept and enables you to analyze buying and selling pressure in smaller, unchanging numbers.
Money Flow Index - The MFI (Money Flow Index) is a momentum technical indicator that can be compared to the RSI (Relative Strength Index) in both calculation and interpretation.
On Balance Volume - The On Balance Volume is a cumulative total of the negative and positive volumes, where negative volume is the volume during a price decline and positive volume is the volume during a price advance.
Percentage Volume Oscillator - The volume oscillator facilitates a mathematical evaluation of volume surges. Using this tool, you can gauge the impact that a volume surge might have on the market. Large positive oscillator values are indicative of significant volume surges.
Volume Accumulation Oscillator - The Volume Rate of Change (Volume ROC) is identical to the ROC (Rate of Change) technical indicator, which displays the percentage difference between the current Volume and the volume n-time periods ago. Below you may find a list of volume based technical indicators (studies) which are available with our charts.
Volume ROC - The Volume Oscillator is used to show the difference between two VMAs (volume moving averages) with the purpose of determining whether the overall volume trend is increasing or decreasing, as well as evaluating the magnitude of the volume surges (abnormal volume activity).
Volume Oscillator - The Volume Oscillator is very similar to the PVO (Percentage Volume Oscillator), except that the PVO evaluates volume in a percentage scale (from -100% to +100%) with 0% as a center line, while the Volume Oscillator evaluates volume in absolute numbers with 1 as a center line.
McClellan Oscillator - The McClellan oscillator is calculated as the difference between the fast (shorter moving average) and the slow (longer moving average) exponential volume moving averages of the advances volume.
Force Index - One of the unique indicators in technical analysis which combines analysis of price movement direction, volatility (through extent of price movement) and volume.
Easy of Movement - Easy of Movement (EMV) tracks money flow and defines bullish and bearish volume via middle price change.
Volume-Price Trend - Volume-Price Trend is an extended cumulative version of the Force index. This technical indicator is quite similar to OBV (On Balance Volume).
Positive Volume Index - Positive volume index (PVI) was developed to reveal action of uninformed crowd and spot down-trends. Due to its cumulative nature it is usually applied to higher timeframes.
Negative Volume Index - Negative Volume Index (NVI) is used to spot action of smart traders and reveal up-trends. The NVI is mostly used on higher timeframes together with PVI.
