Money Flow or MFI

Money Flow on FDAX

The Money Flow Index, or MFI, is an indicator that displays a stock’s flow of capital. The indicator is comparable to the RSI Index, but the RSI does not utilize volume information. A high MFI value means that the market is buying in large volumes (overbought). A low MFI value means that large volumes are being sold (oversold).

Divergences are key to the MFI, so if this indicator falls while the price rises, a trend reversal can be expected. The same goes for a rising MFI in a bearish market. 
With an MFI above 80, the market is probably approaching a top. With an MFI below 20, the bottom is likely to be in sight.
