onbalvol

On-Balance Volume (OBV)

onbalvol has been partially removed and will no longer accept a fints object (tsobj) argument. Use a matrix, timetable, or table instead for financial time series.

Use fts2timetable to convert a fints object to a timetable object.

Syntax

volume = onbalvol(Data)

Description

example

volume = onbalvol(Data) calculates the On-Balance Volume from the series of closing stock prices and trade volume.

Examples

collapse all

Load the file SimulatedStock.mat, which provides a timetable (TMW) for financial data for TMW stock.

load SimulatedStock.mat
volume = onbalvol(TMW);
plot(volume.Time,volume.OnBalanceVolume)
title('On-Balance Volume for TMW')

Input Arguments

collapse all

Data for closing prices and trade volume, specified as a matrix, table, or timetable. For matrix input, Data is an M-by-2 matrix of closing prices and trade volume stored in the first and second columns. Timetables and tables with M rows must contain variables named 'Close' and 'Volume' (case insensitive).

Data Types: double | table | timetable

Output Arguments

collapse all

On-Balance Volume, returned with the same number of rows (M) and the same type (matrix, table, or timetable) as the input Data.
