Does anyone know of a volume indicator to use in conjunction with the swing indicator?
When a new level is printed, how do I see the volume of trades since the last swing point?


Thanks

Hi Grantx

I personally don't use volume indicators that much in NT, but wouldn't a simple volume indicator do?

Ive just found PriceActionSwing:


I want to test this theory of low volume pullbacks. See how it works

What I meant is, a simple volume indicator should be all you need to use in conjunction with that swing indicator.

The most basic volume indicator prints one bar for each corresponding price bar, so for instance if you have a 5-min bar you'd have a corresponding 5-min volume bar, and so on for each time period.

I hear you Xplorer. Since looking into futures I have completely eliminated 'time' in my trading. What a difference!

Foot print chart would help and also a zigzag indicator with volume delta for each swing.
