beech pilot:

That might be a stretch since the OBV is an unbounded indicator and it would depend on just how much chart real-estate you were showing.

The formula for OBV from Matt Greenslet is:

' * On Balance Volume
' * by Matthew Greenslet
' *
' * Summary:
' * Indicator calculation from OT2009
' *
' * Parameters:
' * None
' Copyright 2009 Nirvana Systems, Inc. Austin, Tx, USA.
' ***************************************************************************
Dim fOBV as Single
If Bar > 0 Then
If C > C[1] Then
fOBV += V
ElseIf C < C[1] Then
fOBV -= V
End If
Plot("On Balance Volume", fOBV)
End If
Return fOBV

It, and other OT Indicator formulae can be obtained here:

I have attached this "fish" to this post.

I hope that helps!
