The Accumulation/Distribution Pressure Volume study is used to evaluate strength of the trend by finding divergences between price plot and the indicator itself. It is calculated using the following algorithm:

  • Open price is subtracted from the Close price;
  • The difference is divided by price range;
  • The ratio is multiplied by volume;
  • The final result is equal to cumulative sum of the values found.

The divergence between the price plot and the indicator might indicate trend weakness and subsequent reversal.
