After gapping down during December and January, AutoZone gapped up significantly in mid February and zoomed upwards today hitting a high of 157 at one point.  So why is the Chaikin Money Flow not zooming upwards as well?  The CMF gave a big "sell" signal today because the stock closed well below the mid-point of today's candle and thus the CMF considers most of today's huge volume spike to be "selling" volume.  Will this become another case of "all gaps must be filled?"
