I could not find the definition for "On Balance Volume". Can somebody explain it to me?


Hi,

Welcome to the Motley Fool.

Allow me to introduce you to the power of an Internet search engine.

Go to Google:
http://www.google.com/

Type "on balance volume", click on Google Search:
http://www.google.com/search?q=on+balance+volume&btnG=Google+Search

The first result for me is On Balance Volume - Technical Analysis from A to Z:
http://www.equis.com/free/taaz/onbalanvol.html

"On Balance Volume ("OBV") is a momentum indicator that relates volume to price change."
