K_betterVolume_V1 for ThinkOrSwim
This is my modified version of the default VolumeAvg study in ThinkOrSwim.

the way my simple mind interprets volume move, i expect to see the volume bar Red for "down-days" (closing below the Open) and Green for "up-days" (Closing higher than Open).
  • Default logic in ToS's VolumeAvg study is different where volume bar color is based on trend, so compares today's close to yesterday's - or prior period's - close. Green of closes higher, red if closes below.
  • this quick customization enables me to switch between the 2 logics (Day vs Trend), default is "Day", so the Volume bar is colored based on period's open/close. (see a comparison in screenshot). you can use with any period or aggregation.
  • A double moving average has been added as an extra. i can see short-term (7 day EMA by default) volume vs long-term EMA(200 by default). for a better clue on sudden shifts in volume.
  • you can change settings for the study (Fast Period, Slow, and Volume Bias logic).
hope other fellow traders will find this as useful as i do,
