ACCUMULATION INDICES CODE DESCRIPTIONS


The following are codes that contain information on the ups and downs of stocks. A brief description on the contents in each of the new codes is given which hopefully will assist some people.


X_ACC Advance Decline Line - The close values for this code contain the cumulative difference between the ups and downs of all stocks. The difference is calculated and appended to the previous value that is a funning total. The volume contains the total volume of stocks that have traded for a day.


X_ACCD The close values for this code contain the number of downs for the day. The volume contains the total volume of stocks moved that have suffered a decrease in the days trading.


X_ACCI The close values for this code contain the number of ups for the day. the volume contains the total volume of stocks moved that have had an increase in the days trading.


X_ACCR The close values for this code contain the ratio between the number of ups and the number of downs represented as a percentage. The volume contains the total volume of stocks that have traded for the day.


Algorithm for calculating X_ACC, X_ACCD, X_ACCI, X_ACCR


  1. X_ACCI = 0
    X_ACCI (Vol) = 0
    X_ACCD = 0
    X_ACCD (Vol) = 0


  1. Compare each 3 letter security's (Current) End-Of-Day values against
    its values in the previous Trading Day.

  2. If a security did not trade in the previous trading day, then ignore it.

  3. If a security's current Close price is greater than the previous Close price,
    then X_ACCI = X_ACCI + 1 and X_ACCI (Vol) = X_ACCI (Vol) + Current Volume.

  4. If a security's current Close price is less than the previous Close price,
    thenX_ACCD = X_ACCD + 1 and X_ACCD (Vol) = X_ACCD (Vol) + Current Volume.

  5. If the prices are the same, then ignore the security.

  6. Repeat above for all relevant securities, then ...

  7. if X_ACCD <> 0 then X_ACCR = (X_ACCI / X_ACCD) * 100 else X_ACCR = 20000

  8. X_ACC = Previous X_ACC + (X_ACCI - X_ACCD)

  9. X_ACCI (Vol) = X_ACCI (Vol) / 1000

  10. X_ACCD (Vol) = X_ACCD (Vol) / 1000

  11. X_ACC (Vol) = X_ACCI (Vol) + X_ACCD (Vol)

  12. X_ACCR (Vol) = X_ACC (Vol
