As volume levels are increasing, shorter-term volume moving averages will rise above longer-term volume moving averages. This is similar to how shorter-term price moving averages rise above longer-term price moving averages when prices are increasing. Thus, the difference between two volume moving averages of varying lengths (i.e., this indicator) can be used to see if overall volume trends are increasing or decreasing. When the Volume Oscillator rises above zero, it signifies that the shorter-term volume moving average has risen above the longer-term volume moving average, or that the short-term volume trend is higher (i.e., more volume) than the longer-term volume trend.
There are many ways to interpret changes in volume trends. One common belief is that rising prices coupled with increased volume, and falling prices coupled with decreased volume, is bullish. Conversely, if volume increases when prices fall, and volume decreases when prices rise, the market is showing signs of underlying weakness. The theory behind this is straight forward. Rising prices coupled with increased volume signifies increased upside participation (more buyers) that should lead to a continued move. Conversely, falling prices coupled with increased volume (more sellers signifies increased downside participation).

Place this indicator on the same chart as the DMI spread, Demand Index, and Cyclotron indicators. These provide some interesting supporting signals. Of couse, always have a price line somewhere.
Time Segmented Volume for Amibroker (AFL)
TJ has helped me translate the metastock formula of TSV into AB language.
I thought I should share this formulas with other. This indicator uses volume and price, like OBV, but seems to be more reliable indicator then OBV.
In courtesy of The Wordens brothers I like to post the link for study on purpose and usage of this indicator. http://www.tc2000.com/privuser2/ii12118p.htm
