Cumulative – (lat. Cumulatio increase, accumulation)
Delta is the difference between market (non-limit) orders executed at the ASK price and the BID price.
Any transaction on the exchange takes place in the order of turn due to a counter order (limit order).
Counting transactions executed by a market order at the ASK price and at the BID price gives us the formula:

The value of the delta in the current candlestick takes into account the value of the delta in all previous candles.
