BREAKING DOWN 'Close Location Value - CLV'

The close location value is most commonly known for its role in the calculation of the accumulation/distribution line, an indicator used to determine the rate at which money flows into or out of a given security. Implementing the close location value into other technical indicators like the one mentioned above is becoming more popular because it is often regarded as a better measure for the period's activity than relying solely on the closing price.
