The Chaikin Oscillator is a technical indicator used for confirmation of price movement. It is calculated as the difference between two EMAs of Accumulation/Distribution values: the fast and the slow one.

When the market is trending, i.e. the price keeps reaching new highs or lows, Chaikin Oscillator can confirm the trend reaching new highs or lows as well. If, however, it shows divergence from the price values, trend reversal might be expected.
