On Balance Volume: Have We Hit Bottom? - Cabot Wealth Network


  • Normand J.

    Great article. What is the difference between On Balance Volume and Accumulation-Distribution?


    • Brad S.

      Thank you. On Balance Volume compares the current period’s close with the previous close to determine whether the period’s volume is bullish or bearish. Accumulation-Distribution, on the other hand, uses intra-period price movement (high, low and close) to calculate bullish or bearish volume without regard to the previous period’s closing prices. Like OBV, Accumulation-Distribution is currently flashing a divergent signal (AD line is rising despite bearish price action).
