On balance volume is a volume based  momentum indicator.

 

 As a momentum volume indicator,on balance volume indicator was created by Joseph Granville with the main objective of helping traders to know the direction of the cryptocurrency market.As a volume based momentum indicator, on balance volume indicator uses volume flow to predict changes in cryptocurrency prices.

Just like other volume indicators,on balance volume is also based on divergence and trend strategy and trend line strategy.

Based on trend and trend line strategy,the on balance volume will be considered to be on a rising trend when each new peak is higher than the previous peak and each new trough is higher than the previous trough.It will be considered to be on a falling trend when each new peak is lower than the previous peak and when each new trough is lower than the previous trough.

 

According to Joseph Granville, the values of on balance volume is therefore calculated using the following formula;

-If the close price of the current bar is higher than the previous one,then the volume of current bar will be added to the previous one thus giving the formula as;

 

current period(OBV)=previous period(OBV) +current bar Volume

 

-if the close price of the current bar is lower than the previous one,then the volume of current bar will be subtracted from the previous one thus giving the formula as;

 

current period(OBV)= previous period(OBV)- current bar Volume.
