Equivolume Candles? - Page 3 - NinjaTrader Support Forum

This one - with some wrinkles it seems - is now available for NT7 only

Of old the skilled first made themselves invincible to await the enemy's vincibility.
Invincibility lies in oneself. Vincibility lies in the enemy.
Thus the skilled can make themselves invincible.
They cannot cause the enemy's vincibility.
Thus it is said: 'Victory can be known; it cannot be made.'

Anybody use this type of Chart?, seems easy to spot volume change, there is one on NT forum, but it has bugs.

Here is brief introduction

dynamic equivolume is the name i think you are speaking of..indicator warehouse has it..very cool, the candle gets fatter if the relative vol is higher..i was using better renko with it, and it did have a weird cinflict, but still worked.for range and min bars , i believe i t works well.nt 7 ready also.its not free, but less than $100 i think, which is very cheap.hope this helps

I use these but have customized them a little.
The key to them working is to make the 'Bar Width' property larger.
The bar width needs to be 15 or larger to show properly.

That setting lets the higher volume bars a width of 15 and the smaller ones less.
Most of the time my width is set o 20 but it depends on the type of chart you like.

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?

Opaldragon,
sorry it took a while, i just noticed your request.
here is the screen shot.
i dont believe ensign has the ability to vary the width of the candle accordingly.

Trade what you see, not what you think.
