I don't think you understood my question (or perhaps I don't understand your answer
What I am looking for is an indicator for cumulative time from a certain point.
For example, lets say it is 8:39am CT on Thursday. You want a timer that counts time (such as tenths of seconds ) starting at zero. When the price is red (meaning last is on the bid, I believe) the counter is going negative so if on the red for 6/10ths of a second the counter goes to -6, then the price is green (meaning the last is on the ask, I believe) for 4/10ths of a second the counter goes -5,-4,-3,-2. Then the price is red for 7/10 it goes -3,-4,-5,-6, -7, -8, -9. Then Green for 13/10 of a second and it climbs -8,-7,-6,-5.... to +4.
The idea is to watch the time on the bid and ask of the trades for indications of directional movement.
I think your reply is about orders on the bid and ask sides at different levels - which can be manipulated as people add order and then pull them to try an manipulate people reading the level 2.
