On Balance Volume (OBV)

The On Balance Volume indicator (OBV) is used in technical analysis to measure buying and selling pressure. It is a cumulative indicator meaning that on days where price went up, that day's volume is added to the cumulative OBV total. If price went down, then that day's volume is subtracted from the OBV total. The OBV value is then plotted as a line for easy interpretation. On Balance volume is primarily used to confirm or identify overall price trends or to anticipate price movements after divergences.

Knowing bitcoin history one can easily deduct that such conditions are going to be very attractive for acccumulating BTC as it is going to get a relatively cheap and even riskless ...

Silver price action has been quite flat for a few days now but there is an interesting fact to observe: it seems clear to be some accumulation in this area creating a solid support. You can see three different volume indicators all pointing upwards. OBV has been going up way faster than price and money flow index is coming back to bull territory. This same ...

Wyckoff Accumulation Phases of Credit Suisse

Some remarks on the price evolution of CS Credit Suisse stock was in a downtrend which ended with a selling climax (SCLX) on February 11 this year. After that CS showed signs of being accumulated. The Brexit vote initiated a huge shake out. During this shake out it broke below its trading range, after which it trended back up into the trading range. Here it ...

Nyx Gaming Group has just had a 46% price increase in the past two weeks up until its peak. Price is now very overbought and as stated on the chart there are several bearish indications of why this is a good short sale. Also as you can see on the chart, price recently bouced back from the top lin reg line as it did a couple months ago. Price target is middle lin ...

As you can see by looking at this chart, price action has been following the upwards linear regression channel. It has just bounced from trading at the bottom lin reg line and is showing several bullish indications as stated on the chart. My price target is around the upper lin reg line (green rectangle). Trade valid until price closes below bottom lin reg line.

Golden Dawn Minerals is showing a lot of bullish signs that it is ready for a potential new high. Support has been found at the 50MA as it has before, and the StochRSI is showing an oversold signal with the MACD about to cross to a bullish signal. Also I like this trade because volume has been continuing to increase and it is showing strength with a large bullish ...

Bullish triangle on the JCP chart, watch for a breakout if the price clearly passes and closes above resistance. Chart also has clear indicators of a stong trend with the DMI showing an uptrend and the Aroon showing new uptrend. Would like to see an increase on the OBV along with the others for clarification of a strong trend though.

Horizontal movement this stock looks good for swing and position trades. Or as an option trade straddles and strangles. However one interesting aspect is that the OBV is in a trend upward, precluding an long run trend.

OBV and RSI indicate a possible bounce to the upside. Keep eye on intraday for continuation downward or break to the upside. If you wanna play both sides a straddle or strangle option strategy two or three months out might be ideal. For a one sided trade check OTM (out-the-money) contracts and the Vol in the options contracts relative to the strike price before ...

(1D) XAUUSD v US30 - gold rush.

There seems to be an inverse correlation between XAUUSD and US30. Interestingly Gold began taking off before the recent mini-crash. OBV on Gold was steadily rising whilst OBV on US30 was falling (even while price was recovering). BREXIT has caused deep uncertainty in a number of markets. GOLD has always been a major safe haven. We saw this at every major world ...

I'm no expert at Elliott waves, so my waves may be wrongly counted or drawn on this. But I'm watching a number of other things adding up. I see trend strength weakening. I see OBV probably heading down in a struggling bullish market. There is a similar wavy pattern emerging, similar to that around Nov 2015 to Jan 2016. I'd be delighted if others who know more ...

Day of reckoning has come for oil

This last bullrun on oil prices wasn't really supported by volume and we can see that reflected on the OBV which increased only a fraction of what it fell when prices went from 34 top to 26 bottom. That is, volume was way lower on this 15 USD rally than it was on a drop of only half that amount ! This fake out, is confirmed by the money flow index, now coming ...

We have been on a long period with no clear trend, but looking at the weekly indicators, it shows that we just broke a large triangle and it is even shaping a head and shoulders pattern. All the indicators shown are really bearish on this time interval. The best scenario would be an accumulation period that would take longer to define to the upside. I wouldn't ...
