How many volume per bar in a volume based chart?

Hi folks,

I know many of you are using a volume based bar chart to trade ES mini SPX futures. Each bar is generated when a fixed number of trades are made, not based on a fixed time interval.
Here comes my questions. How do you choose the fixed number of trades? How the different numbers affect your decision making?

Many thanks for your sharing.

Best Regards

Some people tend to use magic numbers, like 667, but the answer to your question will depend
the moment of the day you want to trade ES.

The goal of a volume chart is to have a feeling, for the rhythm of the market, the pulse
You should not use a volume chart as your only chart, it's more an add-on to the rest in my opinion
