Your bars are grey, purple, blue - is these painted according to the size of the equivolume bar?

Purple for down bar, Blue for Up bar. (I don't like the Red/Green colours due to their association to profits/losses and the associated emotions).

Grey colour is the border of the bar. If I see predominantly grey colour, I know that the volume in that bar/area is very low. Exception would be a thick doji bar in which case the tick chart will show my big buyers/sellers.
