The Ease of Movement (EOM) is a technical momentum indicator that is used to illustrate the relationship between the rate of an assets price change and its volume. This indicator attempts to identify the amount of volume required to move prices. Generally a value greater than zero is an indication that the stock is being accumulated (bought) and negative values are used to signal increased selling pressure. A high positive value appears when prices move upward on low volume. Strong negative numbers indicate that price is moving downward on low volume.

Calculation: Ease of Movement (EOM):
1) Distance Moved = ((H + L)/2 - (Prior H + Prior L)/2);
2) Box Ratio = ((V/100 000 000)/(H - L));
3) 1-Period EMV = ((H + L)/2 - (Prior H + Prior L)/2) / ((V/100 000 000)/(H - L));
4) 14-Period Ease of Movement = 14-Period simple moving average of 1-period EMV
