AD

The accumulation/distribution Indicator (Engl. Accumulation/Distribution, abbr. AD) -this is accumulation of difference, multiplied by the volume difference between the movements up when the price increased by closure; and vice versa-between movements down to the days of price goes down. The larger the volume at a given time, the greater the contribution the current price change makes to the direction of the indicator.

Calculation:

To the current accumulated value indicator is added to or subtracted from a certain share of volume of candle. The closer closing price to the maximum of candle - the bigger share added. The closer closing price to the minimum of candle - the greater percentage of substraction. If the closing price is strictly between the maximum and minimum value of the indicator does not change.

A/D (i) = ((CLOSE (i) — LOW (i))-(HIGH (i)-CLOSE (i)) * VOLUME (i)/(HIGH (i)-the LOW (i)) A/D (i-1)

Where is:

A/D (i) — the value of the accumulation/distribution Indicator for the current bar;

Close (i) — the closing price of the bar;

Low (i) — the minimum price of the bar;

High(i) — the maximum price of the bar;

Volume (i) — the volume;

A/D (i-1) — the value of the accumulation/distribution Indicator for the previous bar.

To add and configure the indicator, you must open the settings window.
