To compute the Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) using Julia, you can follow these steps:

  1. Install the necessary packages by running the following commands in the Julia terminal:
1
2
3
using Pkg
Pkg.add("DataFrames")
Pkg.add("CSV")


  1. Load the required packages:
1
2
using DataFrames
using CSV


  1. Load your historical stock price data into a DataFrame. For example, if your data is in a CSV file named "stock_prices.csv", you can load it as follows:
1
data = CSV.read("stock_prices.csv")


  1. Calculate the Money Flow Multiplier (MFM) and Money Flow Volume (MFV) for each period:
1
2
data[!, :MFM] = ((data[:High] + data[:Low] + data[:Close]) / 3) - (data[:High] + data[:Low]) / 2
data[!, :MFV] = data[:MFM] .* data[:Volume]


  1. Calculate the 20-period cumulative sum of the Money Flow Volume:
1
data[!, :CMF] = cumsum(data[:MFV]) / cumsum(data[:Volume])


  1. Plot the CMF values to visualize the Chaikin Money Flow:
1
2
using Plots
plot(data[:Date], data[:CMF], xlabel="Date", ylabel="Chaikin Money Flow", title="Chaikin Money Flow")


By following these steps, you can compute the Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) using Julia and visualize it using a plot.
