I do not think that this idea is going to work. High selling volume - that is bid traded volume - can often be a bullish sign. Also this has nothing to do with the Better Volume indicator, as it does not differentiate between bullish and bearish signals.

So no recommendation for an indicator to start with - assuming I want to back test it with Strategy Analyzer NT8?

No recommendation, as there are thousands of indicators.

If you wish to trade order flow, then you would possibly look for orderflow indicators and start with simple volumetric charts and observe them.

OK, thanks anyway - I just figured you would know an easy volume indicator that could plot both the Bid and Ask separately so I could see them cross for a set period. Not sure what period I would use but it would not be for a full session.

I do not have a lifetime license so I am shut out of NT8's Order Flow including volumetric bars.

Probably use it with Renko or Unirenko or Delta bars. So the BetterVolume would not work since not a timebased chart.

Any chance someone else has a recommendation?

You only showed me half or the error message, as the beginning of the line is missing. There is a bug somewhere in line 166 of something, but as I do not know what is something, and as I cannot check line 166 of something which I do not have, this is going to be difficult.

@Fat Tails,

Here it is, its an indicator that i concocted..:-)..
I tried on standard NT8 indicators SMA, & Bollinger and it worked great.
I will work on my indicator this weekend to figure it out........don't want to waste your time.

Thank Sir,
Sudhir

The bug is in line 166 of that indicator and related to the way you use the Brushes. I do not think that it has anything to do with Better Volume. If you need any help, send me a private message.
