Introduction to the Volume Flow Indicator
The Volume Flow indicator was first introduced by Markos Katsanos. It is based on the popular On Balance Volume (OBV) indicator.
A simplified trading rules with the Volume Flow Indicator are:
- Indicator above the Zero line indicate a strong bullish state.
- Indicator below Zero line indicate a strong bearish state.
- A reliable trade signal is said to be the crossing of the Zero line which is a major signal for a BUY or SELL signal.
- The strongest signal with all money flow indicators is of course divergence so keep an eye out for it.
- Markos Katsanos himself suggests using a “0.2” coefficient for day trading and “0.1” for intra-day.
