Chaikin Oscillator is named after its author Marc Chaikin and based on the Accumulation/Distribution indicator and a number of Joe Granville and Larry Williams works.

The presented variant of this popular indicator allows to select the smoothing algorithm out of ten possible variants:

  1. SMA - simple moving average;
  2. EMA - exponential moving average;
  3. SMMA - smoothed moving average;
  4. LWMA - linear weighted moving average;
  5. JJMA - JMA adaptive average;
  6. JurX - ultralinear smoothing;
  7. ParMA - parabolic smoothing;
  8. T3 - Tillson's multiple exponential smoothing;
  9. VIDYA - smoothing with the use of Tushar Chande's algorithm;
  10. AMA - smoothing with the use of Perry Kaufman's algorithm.

It should be noted that Phase parameter has completely different meaning for different smoothing algorithms.

  • For JMA it is an external Phase variable changing from -100 to +100.
  • For T3 it is a smoothing ratio multiplied by 100 for better visualization;
  • For VIDYA it is a CMO period, for AMA it is a slow EMA period;
  • For AMA fast EMA period is a fixed value and is equal to 2 by default. The ratio of raising to the power is also equal to 2 for AMA.

The indicator uses SmoothAlgorithms.mqh library classes (must be copied to the terminal_data_folder\MQL5\Include). The use of the classes was thoroughly described in the article "Averaging Price Series for Intermediate Calculations Without Using Additional Buffers".
