This is the simplified and optimized version of my original ADV indicator. It shows both regular volume bars and the accumulated/distributed (A/D) portion of them. The equation is elegant and intuitive. It calculates candle body to candle height ratio and multiplies it by volume: volume*(close-open)/(high-low). This is the building block of my three other...
This trend following indicator is made up of 3 parts.
A normalized (OBV) On Balance Volume (the gray line) which ranges between -100 and 100 and has a 55 period SMA overlayed (the orange line) to give an indication of the overall trend as far as volume goes.
- If the volume decreases without a drop in price, it might indicate a move down.
- If volume increases...
On Balance Volume (OBV) Oscillator with Bollinger Bands (BB).
Inspired by @LazyBear OBV Oscillator (link below)
Added BB to the oscillator and colored the OBV line yellow when it's outside the bands' limits, useful for finding over-extended zones where price reversals have higher probability of happening.
BB bands can be deactivated and the oscillator can be...
OBV is the 'On Balance Volume' indicator and is part of the 'keeping it simple' series that have a similar color scheme. the OBV measures buying and selling pressure as a cumulative indicator, adding volume on up days and subtracting it on down days. The OBV can show divergences or confirm trend.
OBV takes difference between old close and new close and multiplies by volume without considering high and low.
This assigns the entire volume into a single direction even tho movement could've been in both.
Accum/dist takes difference between close and high and low without considering previous close or open. This causes huge deviation from OBV when you have...
Enhanced On Balance Volume
"On-balance volume (OBV) is a momentum indicator that uses volume flow to predict changes in stock price.
Joseph Granville first developed the OBV metric in the 1960s.
He believed that when volume increases sharply without a significant change in the stock's price, the price will eventually jump upward, and vice versa."
This is the MACD of a stochastic OBV movement indicator. It is good (right) to work with both price and volume. I've included highlighting based on price divergence. It works great on any time frame, but you need to have volume data. Not sure where I originally got this (stoch-OBV, somewhere off Tradingview several years ago, thanks to the person who shared), just...
mod of lazy bear's OBV coded CCI , which indicates CCI state by changing the color of the OBV. now it shows you when CCI is overbought or oversold, not just one or the other
when CCI > 100, that's an oversold signal and OBV line turns green
when CCO -0.54% < -100, that's an undersold signal and OBV line turns red
CCI threshold can be changed (ex. 200...
For private peeps only
- Takes a modified version of the CCI formula into 2 parts
VCI - Volume Channel Index (Yellow Histogram)
- Measures accurate accumulation and distribution levels and times
MCI - Modified Channel Index
- Measures (when compared to VCI) levels where clearly buys are interested vs not interested.
If VCI > MCI
- Shows buyer's are...
This is the MACD of a stochastic OBV movement indicator, Squeeze Momentum Indicator, and addition coloring for Market Direction Indicator . It is good (right) to work with both price and volume.
In this version we've moved the divergence highlighting to symbols at the ends of the histograms. Same coloring scheme as previous, yellow is divergence of either OBV or...
This is a straightforward modification of LazyBear's CCI-coded OBV indicator with the following changes:
1) uses log-hl2 as source, which seems to be a more stable indicator of price change than close
2) adds optional price smoothing
Cumulative Force Indicator. Can also be seen as an OBV indicator that takes the price differences into account. In a regular OBV, a high volume bar can make a huge difference, even if the price went up only 0.01, and it it goes down 0.01 instead, that volume makes the OBV go down big time, even though in both cases hardly anything really happened. cForce is a...
This is a derivation of the On Balance Volume Indicator.
The idea behind it is that volume consists of two parts. The driving theory is the basic law of supply and demand.
Part 1: Volume consists of shares traded at an equilibrium price. An equal number of buyers and sellers are present during this volume. This area is displayed as the upper and lower shadows...
OBV plotted with Bollinger Bands to show whether the volume is breaking out from its normal deviation (both up or down). The OBV changes color depending on the macro trend which is set using a 100 EMA.
