The **Volume Oscillator** is part of the **Oscillator Group**.

This oscillator compares two moving averages of the symbol's volume data.

One moving average is calculated over a short period, the default number of intervals is **5**.

The second moving average uses volume data from over a longer period, its default number of intervals is **35**.

Users can alter these default values in the **Volume Oscillator Properties** dialog box:

The resulting **Long Average** is then subtracted from the **Short** and plotted: The calculation and plotting then moves forward for each interval and the result is plotted along a zero axis.

Essentially this indicator uses actual volume compared to a moving average of the volume. It is not price sensitive and some systems combine it with price to produce a volume/price trend indicator.

The moving average of the volume revolves around an axis using the traded volume to produce an oscillator. It is a very useful indicator given the huge influence volume has on price.
