Name

Chaikin Oscillator

Definition

Created by Mark Chaikin, Chaikin Oscillator is an indicator created over another indicator Accumulation/Distribution Index (AccumDist). The oscillator is calculated by subtracting a 10 day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) of Accumulation/Distribution Index (AccumDist) from a 3 day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) of Accumulation/Distribution Index (AccumDist). It is designed to anticipate the directional momentum of Accumulation Distribution Line.

Parameters

Parameter 1 
	Definition:    	First Averaging Period (days)
	Default Value: 	10
	Minimum Value: 	1
	Maximum Value: 	20
Parameter 2 
	Definition:    	Second Averaging Period (days)
	Default Value: 	3
	Minimum Value: 	1
	Maximum Value: 	20

Examples

ChaikinOsc(10,3).MIN
	When 10 and 3 day Chaikin Oscillator is at its minimum 
	
ChaikinOsc(10,3).MAX
	When 10 and 3 day Chaikin Oscillator is at its maximum 
  	
ChaikinOsc(11,5).CROSSUP(7)
	When 11 and 5 day Chaikin Oscillator crosses a 7 day moving average upwards
