Hello ejtrader, this is interesting study, unfortunately it works only in real time and does not differentiate ask and bid vol.
Why don't you use ask and bid volume in the code instead of time and sales, you can work on 1 trades chart with the bid and ask vol, then it can be referenced in other time frames. This will work on historical data and will print if it's an ask or a bid.

The original request from RuiS was to detect the Volume ( and not necessarily bid or ask) - so by keeping that in mind this study was developed.

Also the intent was to have the optimal performance w.r.t study and he only wanted to have realtime markings - and this study does exactly that.

This also should support "replay" mode in it's current state.

For other features you have mentioned - which it's certainly possible to code - this is something I can't get to it any time soon as busy with some other projects.

If there is still enough interest - I would try to code this at a later time.

Help please

I try to add the study but for some reason it does not show anything. I did try the version 15 and 41, use dll file and try to compile cpp file, still have the same results. I use current version of sierra chart 1352.
Any help would be apreciated.
Thank you.
