This is a chartbook showing the Volume Breakdown (VB) study and the Bid and Ask Difference (BAD) study in the lower panels. The Bid and Ask volume are the numbers on each bar. I use these studies in all my Chartbook/Studies Collection (see my Trading Diary thread).
I'm unable to attach the VB and BAD studies because the futures.io (formerly BMT) Upload process rejects the file types. The file types are with DLL and CPP extensions (e. g. BidAskHistogram.dll, BidAskHistogram.cpp). SierraChart has a tool to build the DLL from CPP. So, if futures.io (formerly BMT) Upload process will allow at least CPP file type, SierraChart futures.io (formerly BMT) forum members can build the DLL. Sometimes, it is only the DLL study that are available, so, if DLL types are not allowed by the futures.io (formerly BMT) Upload process, forum members may not be able to have the DLLs. Mike should be in the position to resolve this.
I've allowed the .cpp (C++) extension, you can upload it now. Am skeptical on allowing DLL's, can be very dangerous to blindly run code you cannot view the source of.

Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader?

this is an alternative to show volume breakdown. It is just the standard bid volume / ask volume study. If the cumulative volume breakdown, I added for comparison, shows more information depends on what you like.
The following user says Thank You to chrislb for this post:
I notice that you have the Volume Breakdown Chart and Ladder (Volume By Price) studies in your setup. Is the Volume Breakdown Chart the same as the DY Volume Breakdown Chart, which I already have; in any case, could you post the Ladder and Volume Breakdown Chart studies (in cpp format), and your 6E 6rng chartbook shown in your post 5.
I post my 6E chartbook, which should contain the whole stuff, as far as I know.
I agree with you on the amount of the indicators (as you mentioned on the other thread), I want to have on my chart. But I haven't decided finally , which one gives me the best reference to the overall picture I use, and shows the developing end of a valid pullback.
So for the time being, there are more on my charts, then I want to have some time.
