High price (vector)
Low price (vector)
Opening price (vector)
Closing price (vector)
Time series object
ado = adosc(highp, lowp, openp, closep) returns a vector, ado, that represents the Accumulation/Distribution (A/D) oscillator. The A/D oscillator is calculated based on the high, low, opening, and closing prices of each period. Each period is treated individually.
ado = adosc([highp lowp openp closep]) accepts a four-column matrix as input. The order of the columns must be high, low, opening, and closing prices.
adots = adosc(tsobj) calculates the Accumulation/Distribution (A/D) oscillator, adots, for the set of stock price data contained in the financial time series object tsobj. The object must contain the high, low, opening, and closing prices. The function assumes that the series are named High, Low, Open, and Close. All are required. adots is a financial time series object with similar dates to tsobj and only one series named ADOsc.
adots = adosc(tsobj, ParameterName, ParameterValue, ...) accepts parameter name-parameter value pairs as input. These pairs specify the name(s) for the required data series if it is different from the expected default name(s). Valid parameter names are
HighName: high prices series name
LowName: low prices series name
OpenName: opening prices series name
CloseName: closing prices series name
Parameter values are the strings that represents the valid parameter names.
This example shows how to find the Accumulation/Distribution oscillator for Disney stock and plot the results.
