Better Volume with Sound Alerts 5 *
Exported using NT Version 7.0.1000.26

This is a simple version of the Better Volume Indicator from It is not based on the later versions but the original version and identifies the following events

Breakout or Climax Bars: A breakout or climax bar is a bar with the highest value for the product of volume and range within the lookback period.

Churn Bars: A churn bar is a bar with the highest value for the volume per range within the lookback period.

Climax Churn Bars: A climax churn bar is a high volume bar that qualifies as both climax and churn bar.

Low Volume Bars: A low volume bar is a bar that has the lowest volume within the lookback period.

The indicator uses two lookback periods. The larger lookback period identifies stronger climax and churn bars, the smaller lookback period points to weaker climax and churn bars and is used to identify low volume bars.

Sound Files: The sound files are user selectable. You first need to copy your sound files to the directory C:\Program Files\Ninjatrader 7 \sounds. You can then select these files via the indicator dialogue box. Make sure that your sound files are compatible with NinjaTrader. NinjaTrader 7 does not support wav\MPEG, you need to convert it to wav\PCM first with an audio recorder.

Some further ideas and the sound files that I use can be found here:

Version 1.1, April 22, 2011: Bug fixed, low volume bars were not shown correctly.
Version 1.2, January 22, 2012: Paint bar option added. Overlay version showing paint bars only is included. Values for different bar types are exposed as IntSeries
Version 1.3, September 27, 2012: Code efficiency improved, following suggestions by @Zondor.
Version 1.4. December 28, 2012: Bug removed, sound alert for low volume alert was triggered for all bars with setting COBC = false.
Version 1.5. February 10, 2015: Bug removed, paintbar opacity was not applied for low volume upclose bars with setting COBC = false.
