Parameter Description

barsA Bars object
period1The length of the faster EMA of the volume force
period2The length of the slower EMA of the volume force


KVO (developed by Stephen Klinger) is used to determine long-term trends of money flow while remaining sensitive enough to short-term fluctuations. This oscilator compares the volume flowing in and out of a security to price movement.

The oscillator is used together with the Trigger line which is a 13-day exponential moving average of the KVO. It's also possible to build a histogram as the difference between the Klinger Volume Oscillator and its trigger line, and the resulting interpretation will be similar to that of the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD).
