Accumulation2 - Open Interest

Variable List Abbreviation: Accum2-OpnInt

 

Variable Mode(s): Stock and Futures1

[ Note: appears in indicator list only after high, low, and open interest selected ]

 

Parameter(s): Accum2-OpnInt time periods

 

Description:

Sum of weighted open interests where each time period the open interest is weighted by the distance between the closing price and the range midpoint.  The weighting effectively gives a large weight to time periods in which the close is very close to either the high or low ( a possible upward or downward trend).  A close above the midpoint results in a positive weight, while a close below the midpoint results in a negative weight.

 

Calculation:

Sum over n time periods of

open interest * (close - (high + low)/2)
