# 10:11 Mobius: AD is an Intraday indicator. It's daily closing value isn't of any value since where it closes in relation to the closing price has no correlation

# 10:14 Mobius: here is an AD label that includes the open, high and low of the day with bubbles plotted at those price locations on the chart.

#10:18 Mobius: Here's AD Scaled to Price and plotted along with a plot of the AD zero line at price where crosses. Which is often a price pivot area.

#10:22 MTS1: Thanks Mobius!

#10:26 binh4984: Thank you very much Mobius for your help.

#10:33 Mobius: yw And, bin... you might consider the fact that AD is an oscillator that ranges around 0. So taking a daily average of it's closing value would be that same as taking the daily closing average of any oscillator

#10:35 Mobius: won't tell you anything of value. Now you could write a binary momentum indicator using AD on a daily basis that would tell you when a trend is in place and the momentum of that trend

#10:36 Mobius: See the True Momentum Indicator for a method to do that and adding a weight adjusted by the closing value of AD might be useful

#10:37 MTS1: I guess an average on a cumulative AD could be some sort of signal line. I know some analysts look at longer term MI's like that, also # stocks above or below an MA, new highs/lows etc. But I think AD / VOLD etc are probably more useful intraday.

(I would not endorse #3 of 3 as I don't see it's utility: markos)

Here is a little label that will tell you where the bias is throughout the day. It may be handy for some of you.

**Code #3 of 3**
Code:

```
#10:42 Mobius:

Here is a little label that will tell you where the bias is throughout the day. It may be handy for some of you.

Code:

```
# AD Label
# Mobius
# Chat Room Request 04.26.2016
# v 7-19 Markos BTW, put this symbol on your chart and it will keep track of the A/D for the day.
input SYMB = "$ADSPD";
def Data = close(symbol = "$ADSPD", period = AggregationPeriod.Day);
addLabel(1, "AD = " + Data, if Data < 0
then color.red
else color.green);
# End Code
```
