Now I need to set start time for the first bar of the Intraday chart (not start of session times, first bar of first day)? (Intraday chart for more tnhan 1 day length)

This playes very small role when the first bar starts. If its 100,110 or 120 days ago.
Important is you have enough bars on your chart to make your trading decision.
I have appox 150 bars.

The Idea is that big players working with round amounts. To see that, I need to find entry point and is not beginning of the day.

What are you trying to see with volume-per-bar? Accumulation? Distribution? Exhaustion? Something more nuanced?
How many bars in a day do you think it will take to see what you want to see?

I notice that in the settings you have 2,000,000 contracts traded per bar. In the nearest ES contract there are roughly about 2,000,000 contracts traded per day. I checked it with my SC and I get about one bar per day with that setting.

Perhaps you could be a bit more specific. Perhaps you give a date and time when something happened that you would have liked to trade on.
