  2. Calculate Money Flow for each period, t [p] * volume
  3. Decide on time frame over which to calculate the index. This should be based on the cycle you are trading
  4. Calculate NegMoneyFlow: E (t[p] > 0) within the time frame
  5. Calculate PosMoneyFlow: E (t[p] < 0) within the time frame
  6. Calculate MoneyRation = +ve flow / -ve flow
  7. MFI = 100 - 100 / (1 + MoneyRatio)
