Better Volume Bar Chart

Better Volume Bar Chart

Volume has to be the most underrated market variable used in technical analysis. But if you know how to analyze and interpret it, you’ll be able to see market turning points develop and anticipate pullbacks and trend changes.

You can figure out whether the Professionals are buying or selling by analyzing:

  • Volume transacted at the bid or the ask
  • High to low range of the bar, and
  • Average trade size.

The best bar chart indicator applies directly to the price window. If you prefer traditional candlesticks, simply change the name “DRAWBARCHART” in the code to “DRAWCANDLE”.

  1. Volume Climax Up – high volume, high range, up bars (red)
  2. Volume Climax Down – high volume, high range, down bars (white)
  3. High Volume Churn – high volume, low range bars (green, PaintBar blue)
  4. Low Volume – low volume bars (yellow)
  5. Volume Climax plus High Volume Churn – both the above conditions (magenta)

    Hello. It seems that when I reload the chart the candles are looking different than before. Is there a reason for that? Thanks and regards.

    I also have the same problem that I can not solve especially on LowVolume (Yellow) … Sorry

    No need to apologise, my friend. It is great code. I hope you find a solution soon. Regards.

    I think it’s because the lookback period changes at every new bar and that means that many conditions are revised at every bar as well.
