All good, except there are some odd values. Take a look:

Starting around September 2011 the values start to go extremely negative, even though the volume (panel above) does not drastically drop off.

This seems to happen only when I increase the lookback to 7 or higher.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

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? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

I've done some math for lookback = 10 and didn't find any issue in the logic except one thing: looks like it's needed to add the lookback correction for the Holidays in terms for calculating an average value

I'll do it in the nearest future

so these negative values is the reality in terms what you have in DB. sorry if I'm wrong.

If I go back to your 0 based version (instead of - 1) there is a batch of dates that are below 0. That would be impossible, yes?

Out of 5 years of daily data it happens maybe 20-30 times but is concerning.

Hi Guys,

I was referred here from my post in Sierra's support board; I had a similar question of obtaining relative volume

The attached screen shot is from Market Delta displaying a 50 day look back of a 1 Min chart showing the percentage of volume.

Mike...... GREAT FORUM!

It was from a webinar I was on, I will try to get the paramaters of the study. If I do get it I will post it ASAP.

The screenshot I attached was the study from the webinar. It was a 50 day average of each minute bar. So each min bar is an average of the last 50 days of that 1 min period.

hi Mike

this is rv_beta3

The issue was the type of data. the int type has been changed to the long double.

Also this beta filters off the holidays and weekdays.

I hope it will work a much better.

hi

it's not really clear for me

so this study calculates an average of every separate minute bar separately for an every day

beta1 in terms of intraday usage
