Three Dimensional Charts or Optical Illusion?

Using Z-Order to arrange things in the background and foreground and colors can create an optical illusion of a three dimensional chart.

Maybe, you can use 3D candlestick charts to show the market depth?

@Sunil P

The horizontal lines is the DynamicSR Lines indicator (freely available on futures.io (formerly BMT) for download - Elite members ONLY).

The vertical red line is GomVolumeLadder with some tweaky settings (also freely available on futures.io (formerly BMT) for download - Elite members ONLY).

OK, I have the $4.85, but I donate it to futures.io (formerly BMT) on your behalf ... you can add a little bit more, as donation to futures.io (formerly BMT) ... you become an Elite member, and you can have those two indicators and a whole lot more.
