Bull & Bear Volume-by-Price levels

Bull & Bear Volume-by-Price levels

This “Volume-by-Price” indicator shows the amount of volume for a particular price range selected with the “lookback” setting, which is based on closing prices. The bars are horizontal and shown on the left side of the chart to correspond with these price ranges. The bars are separated into 2 colors to clearly identify the bull and bear Volumes in each price range. By combining volume and closing prices, this indicator can be used to identify high-volume price ranges to mark support or resistance.

The code shows 12 Volume-by-Price bars by default, but users can increase or decrease this number to suit their preferences with the “NbrBars” setting. Be aware that due to some ProBuilder limitations, this setting, as well as the lookback one, cannot be extended very much.

For a better visualization of which side has higher volumes on each price range, I added a small square of the corresponding color.

The ScaleFactor setting is used to adapt the length of the bars, depending of your choice to have small or big bars plotted over the price chart.

    Love It!

  2. Marcel • 78 days ago #

    Great job, just what I needed.

  3. juanj • 78 days ago #

    The only problem is that it takes forever to load, even after changing calculateonlastbars=200

    • Nicolas • 78 days ago #

      You’ll need at least 201 bars for a 200 bars lookback. About loading time, I can’t help more sorry …

  4. Marcel • 77 days ago #

    Loading time is surmountable if you trade om the daily timeframe.

    do u have indicator for binary???

  7. Eloi • 70 days ago #

    Bonjour Nicolas, Merci ! Excellent code. Les zones sont à égales distances les unes des autres. Y aurait pas moyen d’affiner ?

    • Nicolas • 70 days ago #

      Désolé je n’ai pas compris la question.

  8. Eloi • 70 days ago #

    Excuse-moi, je n’étais peut être pas clair. Sur certaines zones, le prix passe à de très nombreuses reprises sur d’autres beaucoup moins. J’aimerai pouvoir différencier cela. Est-ce possible ?

    • Nicolas • 70 days ago #

      Je ne comprends pas de quelles zones on parle ? Le graphique représenté ici est simplement une somme des volumes sur les x dernières périodes et divisé en 12 parts égales.

  9. Eloi • 70 days ago #

    Ok je comprend mieux. Merci Nicolas

    Bonjour, si je souhaite utiliser l’indicateur “Market profile” : “Bull & Bear Volume-by-Price levels” et que je travaille sur une unité de temps 30Min! Alors je voudrais l’avoir en debut de journée. par exemple : ouverture DAX30 8:00 la ligné de départ comme a partir de 8:00.
    Il faut donc calculer comme cela : 22:00 (heure fermeture DAX30) – 8:00 (ouverture DAX30) = 14h00 de temps donc pour des bougies de 30Min il faut 14*2=28 (28 correspond au nombre de périodes à renseigner ?) pour pouvoir commencer au debut de la journée ?

    Hi Nicholas…the system shows me two errors. The first one is this: PRC_Bull&Bear Volume on Price (5 12 200); the second one is on the line 6, character 10 (defparam drawonlastbaronly=true). I took a picture of it but I dont’k how to attach it here.
    Thanks in advance

    • Nicolas • 11 days ago #

      Indicator is compatible from version 10.3
      To avoid code problems with bad copy paste, you should download the. .itf file and import it into your platform.

  12. peppe novellino • 10 days ago #

    Thanks Nicholas: I did it. I mean that I’ve imported the itf file that you’ve charged above, but it isn’t still working. I can’t understand what’s the problem

  13. peppe novellino • 11 hours ago #

    Hallo Nicholas…I’ve been waiting for your aswer: maybe you can’t help me. All the best

    • Nicolas • 10 hours ago #

      I think you have not a compatible version of PRT. What’s your broker?

  14. peppe novellino • 10 hours ago #

    My broker is Binck bank, and I’m actually using version 10.2 (I think that Binck as a kind of use license for prorealtime)

    • peppe novellino • 10 hours ago #

      Has a kind…sorry for the mistake

    • Nicolas • 8 hours ago #

      Ok, so that confirm what I replied to you 7 days ago, your PRT version is too old and not compatible for graphics objects created by code.
