10.7 Chaikin Oscillator

The Chaikin oscillator, or Chaikin A/D oscillator, by Marc Chaikin is simply the difference between a 3-day and 10-day exponential moving average (EMA, see Exponential Moving Average) of the Accumulation/Distribution index (see Accumulation/Distribution).

Chaikin Osc = EMA[3] of A/D - EMA[10] of A/D

The periods 3 and 10 are configurable.
