Money Flow Indicator (Chaikin Oscillator)

Indicator plots Money Flow Indicator (Chaikin). This indicator looks
to improve on Larry William's Accumulation Distribution formula that
compared the closing price with the opening price. In the early 1970's,
opening prices for stocks stopped being transmitted by the exchanges.
This made it difficult to calculate Williams' formula. The Chaikin
Oscillator uses the average price of the bar calculated as follows
(High + Low) /2 instead of the Open.
The indicator subtracts a 10 period exponential moving average of the
AccumDist function from a 3 period exponential moving average of the
AccumDist function.

Good work on programming this indicator. I was wondering if it might be more accurate to track money flow using something called Twiggs Money flow. I read about it and rather than reproduce it, you can find that write up here:
http://www.incrediblecharts.com/indicators/twiggs_money_flow.php
It will account for gaps up or down. and give early warning of moves about to happen in either direction as well. The logic of how to calculate Twiggs Money Flow is also presented. I think this would be an added bonus to have Twiggs Money Flow in Tradingview. All the best.
