  Volume flow indicator by Markos Katsanos, volume indicator type oscillator

 

 

 

The many uses of the Volume flow indicator VFI

(See chart examples below)

 

 

  • When VFI is above zero this denotes a bullish condition. (Trend definition)

  • When VFI is below zero this denotes a bearish condition. (Trend definition)

  • As a divergences indicator,It can be in the usual way as one would use other oscillators such as Demand Index or Money Flow MFI and Qstick indicators    

  • Learn More about divergences

 

  • One use not highlighted by most texts is the use of "V" formations in VFI which when highly correlated with the price of flag up the trend turning points in a timely manner. These observations are best when a dramatic rise of fall in the price and the VFI precede the V formation.

  • Topping and bottoming patterns such as head and shoulders and double tops which form in the VFI often herald a trend reversal in the underlying instrument before it shows in the actual price. See images below.

  • Rumour has it that Mr Katsanos made $700,000 in a single day from a signal generated by the volume flow indicator.

 

  • As an overbought or oversold oscillator in the same way as RSI would be used.

  • IMPORTANT NOTE When an extreme high reading ( overbought ) is observed on the VFI it can often be an early warning to herald a major uptrend is starting and traders entering short on these readings must exercise extreme caution. Got it?

  • Obviously the same applies vice versa when extreme oversold readings occur.

 

 

 

 

 

Markos Katsanos: (Genius)

Designer of the Volume Flow Indicator or VFI

 

This indicator is always going to be high on my list of essential tools in the traders toolbox.

Versatile in its uses, simple to understand and more reliable than some other inferior volume indicators such as on balance volume or OBV.

 

You can get it here free just drop me a mail

Mr Katsanos graduated in structural engineering and holds an honours degree in civil engineering.

He is a member of the Technical Securities Analysts Association of San Fransico known as ( TSAAF)

He began applying his logical commonsense engineering background to the stock market around 1987.

His superbly designed indicator known as the VFI  Volume Flow Indicator, is probably in my opinion his finest piece of work.

Example 1: Below VFI Flagged up two nice head and shoulders bottoms which called the moves up very early.

Example 2:Below  VFI crosses zero with conviction, and forewarned the fast move up which occurred a few bars later

Example 3: Below VFI  gave four nice "V" Patterns which called the trend turning points very precisely

Example 4: Below Crossing zero called the trend well, by staying under zero its kept the traders out of bad trades

   Example 5: Below VFI Length 8 with no smoothing functions nicely as an overbought oversold oscillator in the same context as an RSI would be used. +5 indicated overbought and -5 indicated oversold in this example.

Demand Index

An excellent oscillator that is versatile in its applications, computing its values from price and volume. It can be used as a divergence indicator and a trend following indicator. I have added a smoothing length feature to suit the needs of the individual user.

I find this indicator very useful for observing intra-day price action in actively traded stocks and futures...........More details and examples

In one session I was able to improve on the Hull average, but it took me a lot longer to improve on the Jurik JMA offering.......More details and examples

A complex piece of code that observes multiple look backs of Demand Index lengths to hunt out when divergences exist.

Often produces stunning signals at exact market bottoms.

This is not an "always in the market" indicator and only flags up when sets up occur that show a real divergence in a market.

As Demand Index uses volume, to perform at its best this indicator needs real volume enabled..............More details and examples

Compatible with....              Indicator + function                                    Q-Stick

A Simple and yet very efficient way of defining if a trend is in a bull or bear phase. Probably the best piece of work that Chande ever turned out, and yet seemingly forgotten by the whole world.

Setting lengths to 80 or more makes for a smooth analysis of trend, and the crossing of zero indicates trend direction.

 

See how early it signalled a bear move in the example when it crossed zero. Can be used as an short term oscillator with lengths less than 10 and often gives very early signals...More
