The NinjaTrader indicator Chartmill Value Indicator (CVI) was published by Dirk Vandycke in the January 2013 issue of Technical Analysis of Stocks and Commodities. The CVI measures the standard deviation from a moving average. So, as the moving average rises, price will also need to rise to increase, or keep the current spread between price and the underlying moving average.
The Chartmill Value Indicator (CVI) is built on our Oscillator Framework, which allows users to easily run the indicator on multiple time frames (MTF), including custom bar types.
