@Big Mike do you recall how you make your mountain graphs on your 10k volume chart. I am trying to duplicate the visual because it is much easier to read then looking at the "line on close". Mine looks like this, but I can't figure out how to make the moutain show up like yours does. If i select mountain, I can't get it to change colors etc when it passes the zero line. Would you mind showing how you did this!

Yes, you can select 'draw volume profile' then drag x/y coords with mouse, it will surround price and draw a profile based on your default indicator settings.

why it believes does not work dvp? packet insufficient for sierra?

I don't know if this helps you or not, but 'Draw Volume Profile' only works if you have SC Level 5.

I'm still pretty new to SC (and trading) but I think you'd need to add a Study that contains the info, to the chart, then it will reflect in the spreadsheet. This mentions either using T&S or the Bid or Ask Volume:

You cannot add the Spreadsheet Study to a DOM chart.
You would need to open a regular chart and add the Depth Of Market Data study.
Then when you add the Spreadsheet Study study, you'll see the depth of market data in rows 3 and below in columns AA and above, but it will have no relationship to chart bars. The data is real time only, and there is no historical DOM data, at least not yet:

Hi guys,

I've been trying to find a Cumulative Volume Chart based on Time of Day. Similiar to what @DionysusToast / Jigsaw is using for Sierra. Relative Volume does this for a particular Candle, but not for accumulation of the day vs 30 days previous.

So if we usually (30 day avg) have 100K traded at 10am on ES, and we are at 150k then it would show 50K positive.

Has anyone seen or heard of anything like this? Or any ideas of where to look? I am not talking about Relative Volume Study in Sierra. That doesn't do accumulation.

Thanks so much!

Actually it does do accumulation:


Quoting 
Cumulative Volume Ratio Calculation
For each bar in the chart, the following calculation is done:

For each of the prior days being referenced as specified by the Period Input, the volume from the open for the day determined by the Session Times is added together for each chart bar up to and including to particular time being compared to on the current day. This value is called PriorDayCumulativeVolumeToTime and there is one for each day of the Period.

Each of these PriorDayCumulativeVolumeToTime values is averaged together. The result is: PriorDayAverageCumulativeVolumeToTime.

For the current day, the volume for each chart bar is added together from the open for the day as determined by the Session Times to the particular bar time being compared to. This is called CurrentDayCumulativeVolumeToTime.

The Cumulative Volume Ratio is calculated as: CurrentDayCumulativeVolumeToTime / PriorDayAverageCumulativeVolumeToTime

Just use the relative volume study and calculate the difference between Average Volume(SG4) vs Volume from a traditional volume study.

you could do this using "study subgraphs difference."

Adding historical market depth data to your data feed will be great(even at extra cost).

First post.

I'd respectfully request...

1. ability to set BG and text color for any column in the DOM. Especially price.
2. easier method to very quickly add user text comments to DOM rows.
3. display cumulative B/O delta on the DOM for the time period since last clearing the total volume at B and O
4. allow DOM window to be resized vertically without squashing the price scale. Maybe I just have not found the scale setting for this yet.
5. move working limit and stop orders by clicking on the price scale, rather than dragging the order handle.

Otherwise, SC is a beast. In a good way. It is truly amazing what you can configure.

If nobody volunteer to do it you can pay SC to do it

The Trade DOM is just another chart as far as SC software is concerned, so you can do all the same chart scaling features on the Trade DOM that you can on a normal chart.

To start, just right click on the price scale inside the Trade DOM and away you go. What u want to do can definitely be done via those options.

I'm pretty sure the correct settings exist, I just have not found the right combo yet. Basically, I want the graphics within the DOM window to remain independent of the size and shape of the window. Exactly like when you resize a spreadsheet window vertically - the rows remain the same height.

Click-edit cells in the labels column is more important to me.

I'm not so sure it is possible. If a SC DOM is a chart, and a chart doesn't have scaling setting that allow the time scale to disappear from view as you shrink the vertical height of the window, then it is not possible on the DOM.

you can hide the time scale in chart settings --> advanced settings

You can. But I think you may have mis-interpreted my post.

don't want to hide the time scale. I want my DOM to not behave like a chart wrt window vertical size.

4. allow DOM window to be resized vertically without squashing the price scale.

1. Resize the window as you require.
2. Right-click in the price scale, and select 'Auto Scale the ChartDOM'.
