The Chaikin Oscillator (AKA Chaikin A/D Oscillator) is essentially a momentum of the Accumulation/Distribution Line. It is calculated by subtracting a 10 period exponential moving average of the A/D Line from a 3 period exponential moving average of the A/D Line. When the Chaikin Oscillator crosses above zero, it indicates a buy signal, and when it crosses below zero it indicates a sell signal. Also look for price divergence to indicate bullish or bearish conditions.
The Chaikin Oscillator was developed by Marc Chaikin.
