Hi Mike,
the Pullback column shows the activity since the last price extreme of the current bar was created. If a high was last created, activity since that high became the high will be shown in the Pullback Column. If a low was last created, activity since that low became the low will be shown in the Pullback Column.
It is periodicity independent, which means it does not matter what periodicity you choose. The Pullback Column will just monitor the moves off the high and low of the current bar to provide you with an intra-bar way to monitor volume and delta as price trades. It is usually added to the rightmost side of the Numbers Bars Study. I hope to post an illustration asap.

I think one of SC user created this already.

I checked the SC forum and and found the user you mentioned. The problem is that every time SC makes some major changes he as well has to change his code.

This workaround was added to the above thread on the SC forum:

If you really need a column's values in ascending datetime order, here is a way to do it (without manually entering a formula in every cell):

1) Put this in cell Z2:
=J30+1

2) Put this in cell Z3:
=Z2-1

3) Put this in cell Y3:
=INDEX(A$3:A1002,Z3,1))

This assumes you have Number of Rows set to 1000. Edit the A1002 to the number of rows +2.
This example sorts the Date Time column A, but it works with any column.

SC has added the option to draw profiles as outlines rather than the horizontal bars:

Nice add especially for composites

I started a thread over at SC for a feature request, but haven't seen any interest. Rather than bump my own post over there, I thought it may be worthwhile to get some feedback from the futures.io (formerly BMT) crew.

From my post:


Quoting 
What I'm looking for is the ability to add a 'relative' functionality to VbP studies. As it is, a VbP for a day with 100,000 in volume can look the same as a day with 1,000,000 in volume. Same goes for VPOCs (and HVNs and LVNs after they become available ).

For example, in the attached screenshot, I've included a couple notes comparing the 18th and 19th RTH sessions. One of the biggest differences I see is that even though the 19th traded 40% more volume than the 18th, volume at the VPOC was almost half what it was on the 18th.

In the second image, we can see that some of the most prominent high volume nodes on the 19th were actually very weak when compared to several price levels from the 18th. Visually, however, they appear to be 'equal'.

Am I in the minority in thinking this would be a useful addition? If so, that's fine. It just seems like there's some potential. Initially, an obstacle that came to mind was place in time. For example, if it's just 5min into current day RTH it doesn't seem like there would be much value in proportionalizing the current day volume profile against a recent completed day or average of several completed days. If it was a constantly updating comparison (i.e. 08:30-08:35 from today proportionately compared to 08:30-08:35 from yesterday), that could be useful.

I don't think it's any grail or anything earth-shattering, it just seems like a feature that could produce more representative market view when using volume profiles (or vol by price).

Thoughts? Bueller? Bueller?
