Chaikin oscillator

chaikosc 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.



chosc = chaikocs(Data) calculates the Chaikin oscillator.

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

load SimulatedStock.mat
oscillator = chaikosc(TMW);
plot(oscillator.Time, oscillator.ChaikinOscillator)
title('Chaikin Oscillator for TMW')

Input Arguments

collapse all

Data with high, low, open, close information, specified as a matrix, table, or timetable. For matrix input, Data is an M-by-4 matrix of high, low, opening, and closing prices. Timetables and tables with M rows must contain variables named 'High', 'Low', 'Open', and 'Close' (case insensitive).

Data Types: double | table | timetable

Output Arguments

collapse all

Chaikin oscillator, returned with the same number of rows (M) and type (matrix, table, or timetable) as the input Data.
