Everyone may already know this but I discovered a little trick. I overlay volume on most of my charts, like the chart titled BigBlue below.

If instead of selecting a color you type in the yrgb codes, you can set the transparency.

Second chart has 64,0,0,254 typed in the Plots>Color field.

Easier on the eyes sometimes.
