VSA Volume Spread Analysis

traderharikrishna Updated   
Volume Spread Analysis with Trend Direction is an indicator designed to Identify trend based volume spread.
  • Volume
  • Spread
  • Trend
This is a very simple yet powerful to identify Trend and corresponding volume Breakout. Unlike other Volume Indicators this indicator detects Breakout along with trend direction. One can detect the Early breakout in volume using this indicator. The Buy or Sell Signal is based on zero crossing of the Histogram.
Trend direction is confirmed using the MA of the Histogram which is similar to the Volume MA on volume indicator. One can enter a trade using the indicator when Trend direction and histogram are in same direction. Entry is done when ever histogram crosses the Trend MA line.

Fake entries can be eliminated by changing the indicator to higher Timeframe.

Spread is determined using the difference in open and close of the candle
Volume change is determined using the ratio of change of volume to previous volume
EMA 10 is used to determine the Spread and multiplied by volume change so the
PRICE(ema10), Volume, Spread(close-open) are merged to one indicator.
Direction changes when ever difference of VSA is positive or negative.
