I recommend to use platform R | TRADER PRO
other platforms as NT or SC shows Equivolume Bars terribly

* If investing gets too difficult for a seventh grader to understand, the system is needlessly complex
* Markets produce an enormous volume of information, much of which is redundant
* In every game and con there's always an opponent, and there's always a victim. The trick is to know when you're the latter, so you can become the former

TRADERTX -- do you have some screenshots -- to see how it looks??

I have some equivolume bars here on Ninja but they are not that awesome... We definitely need better equivolume bars.

I would some some that WE set the how wide the bar should be per lot or lots! that would be sweet

Not doing it automatically..

Most people don't understand the equivolume indicator in NT.
For it to work properly, you need to specify a large number for the bar width.
The attached chart has a max bar width of 25 and you can see it shows the large volume at the turn.
(wide green bar)

FWIW

Thanks cory. When I increase the bar width to 20 or 25, all of my candles are kind of jammed up together.The high fat vol candles block the apperance of the smaller candles before and after it, making it difficult to read price action.
No matter how I change the bar spacing,the same thing occurs.Anyway to modify the code of this chart type to make it easier to see?
