  • 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.

Volume Indicators and NT 6.5

I am having a lot of issues with NT and volume being displayed correctly, predominantly with stocks. According to NT support forum they blame all issues on the data providers. Yet some have pointed out using Quote Track with same data feed no issues, ie IB. I currently have IB and a barchart data feed. Basically during the day a large spike shows up in the volume indicator which skews the scale making all other bars unreadable because of the scale. If I reload historical data it corrects the issue until the next spike. I exported the symbols minute data to a text file from NT. Every time the data stops 1 minute before the spike. Example spike is 7:55, current time 10:20, export minute data shows last data at 7:54. I've tried both VOL and VolUPDn that come with NT no difference. If I slide the spike out of view the scale is returned to normal and you can see volume bars that came in after the spike.

Is there a volume indicator that will get around this issue or is this another NT quirk that hasn't been fixed and or won't be?

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
