Chaikin Money Flow - Library

Library "Chaikin Money Flow"


Developed by Marc Chaikin, Chaikin Money Flow measures the amount of Money Flow Volume over a specific period.
Money Flow Volume forms the basis for the Accumulation Distribution Line. Instead of a cumulative total of
Money Flow Volume , Chaikin Money Flow simply sums Money Flow Volume for a specific look-back period, typically
20 or 21 days. The resulting indicator fluctuates above/below the zero line just like an oscillator. Chartists
weigh the balance of buying or selling pressure with the absolute level of Chaikin Money Flow . Chartists can
also look for crosses above or below the zero line to identify changes on money flow .

The Accumulation Distribution Line was developed by Marc Chaikin to measure the cumulative flow of money into and
out of 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. Marc Chaikin chose a different approach, instead
of relying on the closing price, he used CLV (Close Location Value).
