Point and figure charts based on volume and/or tick

When I try to create a %0k volume P&F chart in NT7 it looks like this:

Is there something wrong with that? I cannot seem to get P&F charts to look right without using time as the base period type.

Best contact NinjaTrader Support.

I believe that the PnF volume charts are flawed.

Yeah I think they are busted, I use 1 minute. I've tried all manners of volume on it and it goes wack every time.

P&F is a range chart anyhow, using volume on it doesn't add any value I don't think.
