Better Volume (amaBetterVolume) 5 *
Version 1.1 September 12, 2018

This indicator is based on the original version of the Better Volume Indicator from https://www.emini-watch.com/. It identifies the following events relative to the selected lookback period:

Breakout or climax bars: A breakout or climax bar is a wide range high volume bar for which the the product "volume times range" is higher than for all preceeding bars of the lookback period.

Churn bars: A churn bar is a narrow range high volume bar for which the ratio "volume per range" is higher than for all preceeding bars of the lookback period.

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

Low volume bars: A low volume bar is a bar which has a lower volume than for all preceeding bars of 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.

A breakout or climax bar may occur at different locations. It may start a trend as a breakout bar, it may indicate that an existing trend continues after price has consolidated or it may occur at the end of a trend and indicate that the trend is near exhaustion. This bar type is similar to classic types of gaps that may be found on daily charts. There are runaway gaps, continuation gaps and exhaustion gaps. Breakout or climax bars may be used as a subsitute for those gaps when trading smaller timeframes.

Relative Volume: When you use the BetterVolume indicator with intraday data, it is pretty much distorted at the beginning of the regular session. When compared to pre-session bars, all the bars in the beginning of the regular session look like high volume bars, which in turn leads to false signals. This behavior is corrected when the Better Volume indicator is applied to "relative volume" instead of "absolute volume". This version of the indicator allows for performing the Better Volume calculations on both absolute volume and relative volume.

Sound Alerts: The indicator comes with sound alerts.

Market Analyzer Column: I have included a market analyzer column with the install file. The market analyzer column will return bar codes for each type of signal: strong climax churn bar = 0, strong climax bar = 1, strong churn bar = 2, weak climax churn bar = 3, weak climax bar = 4, weak churn bar = 5, low volume bar = 6, upclose no signal bar = 7, downclose no signal bar = 8, doji no signal bar = 9. Based on these values you may define cell conditions and show the signals as text with background color on the market analyzer.

Update version 1.1: Bug removed. Sound alerts did not fire, because the path for the sound files had not been initialized.

Update version 1.3:: Holiday calendar updated for Relative Volume indicator, sound alerts now working on inactive charts.

Nota: The forum software has renamed the downloadable zip file to the false version number 1.0. Please disregard the version number of the zip file. The zip file contains the indicator version as specified above.

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 https://www.emini-watch.com/. 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.

K_BetterVolume for ToS 5 *
Update 20 Oct 2013: a variation of this study that tracks only the net avg volume ratio has been posted here
thx, K


Posted some examples on how to use in reading charts and action

Here's an interesting view of volume that I've been watching for a while. Added to the K_BetterVolume indicator I posted here a while back.
Instead of watching the classic volume bar by bar plot, I started watching the average buy vs sell for a period, which I found much more insightful. A stronger/more sustained price move is usually associated with a net volume avg forming in the same direction, also moves with no strong volume supporting them will possibly be short-lived- this simple way to view volume is especially useful when there's no easy way to track volume at bid/ask level, or if you don't want to go that deep...

Changes in this version:
  • A simple way to track Buy vs Sell volume for a given length of bars, "Directional Volume, or Volume Pressure or VXNet", which is the net of ratio of buy vs sell avg volume (WMA) to the overall volume average. inspired by a similar concept in one of Elder's study
  • added a volume buzz label calculation (the closest I could get to a VolBuzz calc in ToS, impossible to do in custom WatchLists or scans). By Changing the chart aggregation, I can check the VolBuzz (basically current bar's volume vs longer average volume of same time interval)
  • VXNet can be displayed on top of the "classic" volume plot, or separately .. changing plot settings enables to view it as a histogram, or just a simple green/red cloud.. see screencap for examples of how this study can be set
  • VXNet is zero-lag smoothed, however keep smoothing as small as possible (3 to 5) not to lose traction to actual volume trend change
  • informative labels, can be turned on or off - Dynamic coloring


Changes in V3 - May, 2013
--------------

Changed the Algo that calculates Sell / Buy volume to the same one developed by Barry Taylor at EminiWatch for TradeStation, and mentioned in our VSA for thinkorswim thread here

this algo does test well and provides a better signal (sometimes up to 3 bar improvment) than taking the whole volume bar as a buy or sell volume based on the close vs open technique in prior version..

The Dynamics coloring of the info labels still there, provides visual clue for major volume spikes that deserve attention

code is commented.. TOS Study setup "baloon mini-guide" also included.

CCLBetterVolume2 V1 4 *
Lifted from the BetterVolume2 Indicator available on the Ninja Forum and originally written by Barry Taylor and available for free, this one features a few additions including:
some of Cory's volume stop work;
some additional patterns (many of them experimental) which track various combination such as down bar, then churn, then up bar. Small-size wingdings are used to highlight such signals which can easily be turned off once they are learned and/or different ones added.

This is not nearly as sophisticated as many of the live-updating buysell/delta indies out there. The Tradestation version of BetterVolume does a good job of reading up and down ticks but this is much tricker in Ninja and this indicator was not programmed that way (though at this point I think it could/should be) with less difficulty than a year or so ago since more independent programmers out there have shared so much stuff.

To activate the volume signals, change the MA Period from 20 to 21. Then read through the Descriptions for the other options. It's fairly straightforward.

The attached pic shows two version of BetterVolume2 which I had up to ensure this latest version with a different name (so as not to over-write the original BetterVolume2 on others computers) was working correctly.

COMPATIBILITY:
NinjaTrader 6.5: YES
NinjaTrader 7.0: NOT TESTED [feedback]
