volume indicators

what is best volume indicator to track money inflow/outflow, by smart money on individual stock?


  • markd already answered this, at the very top of the other post:

    VWAP - volume weighted average price
    Accumulation/Distribution line
    Chaiken Money Flow
    Chaiken Oscillator
    Force Index
    Money Flow Index
    Negative Volume Index
    On Balance Volume

    and, I would add PVI and Klinger Oscillator.

    Ease of Movement (EMV) is also a valid volume/price indicator. Most all of the indicators mentioned are Price/Volume related.

    If you want straight Volume, no better indicator than adding the Volume Indicator on the chart. If you add it twice and add a "slow" MA Envelope of decent width on one and a "fast" Moving Average overlay on the other and put one behind the other it will show the 'extremes' or significant changes pretty well.

    Or put a KST overlay or Bollinger Bands on the Volume. KST is an interesting indicator/overlay. It weights the ROC variables it uses and this allows you to weight the variables however you'd like.

    Both KST and Bollinger Bands, along with several others, are available to use on the Price Chart as well as Overlays of other indicators. One of my favorites on things like PPO is to put Price Labels on to show the values at the various swing highs and swing lows.
