Arguments

HLC

Object that is coercible to xts or matrix and contains High-Low-Close prices.

volume

Vector or matrix of volume observations corresponding to the HLC object.

n

Details

Chaikin Money Flow is calculated by taking dividing the sum of the Chaikin Accumulation / Distribution line over the past n periods by the sum of volume over the past n periods.

Value

A object of the same class as HLC and volume or a vector (if try.xts fails) containing the Chaikin Money Flow values.
