Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) Factor
Chaikin Money Flow (or CMF) Is a proprietary technical indicator that calculates the buying pressure (green) or selling pressure (red) for a stock. A stock that closes high in its daily range on high volume is considered to be under net accumulation and conversely a stock closing nearer its daily low on high volume is considered to be under net distribution, as these patterns may reflect institutional trading activity. CMF ranges from +100 to -100. A stock that closes at its high 21 days in a row will have a value of 100. A value of +25 or -25 is considered strong accumulation or distribution. For the PGR, the CMF persistency of accumulation for the previous six months is used.
