PVT is short for Price Volume Trend, a Metatrader 5 indicator that is used to gauge price trend as well as volume, it is quite similar to the standard On Balance Volume (OBV) indicator.
The amount of the volume that needs to be added to the most recent value is determined by the volume, by which prices have spiked or dipped relative to the close of the previous day.
The Price Volume Trend custom MT5 indicator has no customizable input parameters, but you can modify line colors (which includes the width and the style), scale, levels and visualization.

PVT = ((Close – Close(-1)) / Close(-1)) * TickVolume + PVT(-1)
