Here’s an idea for a simple indicator that I think most intraday traders would find useful. Maybe one of you talented guys can code it. It is intended for time charts, and it alerts you when there’s a spike in both price and volume.

Conditions could be something like these:

Calculate on bar close

IF (Volume ≥ 1.618 × the average volume of last 14 bars)
AND (price bar length ≥ 1.618 the average of price bar length for the last 14 bars)

AND ((Close – Low) ≥ 0.8 × (High – Low))
OR ((High – Close) ≥ 0.8 × (High – Low))

THEN overlay an arrow in Volume bar AND play audio alert

Nice to have: it is possible for the user to change desired values (amount of volume, number of bars, bar length and percentage of close regarding high to low)

This indicator accomplishes two things: it gives you confirmation that volume and price spikes respond to your criteria instead of just relying on your visual estimation, and you don’t miss the action thanks to the alert.
