  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

I am still quite new at EL programming, so forgive me

This little indicator just plots some interesting support and resistance areas solely based on where the majority of volume took place. I use it on a 5 minute chart, and it looks like this:

You'll need a semi-wide right margin to see the text, or you can edit the indicator itself if you want to adjust that. d1..d5 just represents how many days back the line represents, I have it set to do a 5-day rolling action now.

All the lines are drawn ahead of time and do not change intraday. Decide for yourself it is useful or not. The code itself could use some refinement, I am sure. Please post enhancements!

Attached is the MultiCharts .pla.


Is there anyone who's coded this for Tradestation? I literally know next to nothing when coding an indicator, but I am a huge proponent of using volume points of control and would kill to have something that plots them on my charts. The code provided doesn't seem to plot anything, it's just blank when I use it.
