Twiggs Money Flow

Twiggs Money Flow is Colin Twiggs' derivation of the popular Chaikin Money Flow indicator, which is in turn derived from the Accumulation Distribution line. While Chaikin Money Flow uses Close Location Value to evaluate volume as bullish or as bearish, Twiggs Money Flow, uses the True Range. Twiggs Money Flow also relies on moving averages in its calculation while Chaikin uses cumulative volume.

Klinger Volume Oscillator

The Klinger Volume Oscillator (KVO, also named Klinger Oscillator) was developed by Stephen J. Klinger . Learning from prior research on volume by such well-known technicians as Joseph Granville, Larry Williams , and Marc Chaikin, Mr. Klinger set out to develop a volume-based indicator to help in both short- and long-term analysis.

Volatility Quality Index

Volatility Quality Indicator (VQI) is a technical indicator that was developed to identify quality stocks with low volatility. The indicator is based on the assumption that assets with low volatility are less risky and more stable.

Trend Direction and Force Index

Developed by psychologist and trader Alexander Elder, it was first published in his 1993 book, “Trading for a Living”. This indicator is an oscillator that swings between 1 and -1 and can be qualified as a zero cross by combining both price movement and volume. It has the added advantage of displaying a neutral zone where no significant bull or bear “force” exists, and the market has no distinct direction. This area is between -0.05 and +0.05 as noted on the indicator levels.

Volume Flow Indicator

VFI,introduced by Markos Katsanos, is based on the popular On Balance Volume (OBV) but with three very important modifications: * Unlike the OBV, indicator values are no longer meaningless. Positive readings are bullish and negative bearish. * The calculation is based on the day's median (typical price) instead of the closing price. * A volatility threshold takes into account minimal price changes and another threshold eliminates excessive volume. A simplified interpretation of the VFI is: * Values above zero indicate a bullish state and the crossing of the zero line is the trigger or buy signal. * The strongest signal with all money flow indicators is of course divergence.
