Thanks for the great indicator. While I enjoy using the VSA or VPA, I find myself using the VPA Volume indicator more to find market direction and entry points.

The link to this indicator is located in the downloads section here:
https://futures.io/free_downloads/thinkorswim/440-download.html?view

While this VPA Volume indicator is great, I do notice it not detecting some big price moves on 233, 1600, and 3200 tick charts.

I am not a programmer so I do not know how, or if there is even a way to improve on this indicator.

Would anyone with some programming skills be willing to try to make this indicator more sensitive to market moves without loosing it's accuracy?

Thanks very much for all your work on the indicator.

It may already have been posted somewhere on this board but I'm halfway through a book that explains VSA;

I downloaded it a few days ago;

"Master the Markets - Taking a Professional Approach to Trading & Investing by Using Volume Spread Analysis"

"The primary thing required to obtain what you want from life, is simply the will to pursue it, and the faith to believe it is possible." - Author Unknown

"The ability to maintain discipline and stick to the rules is the hallmark of the experienced successful trader" - Curtis Faith

Tony,

I like your indicator and I added some code for bubbles instead of arrows. See attached.

VPA indicator

first thanks for your time and effort in doing this coding.

I installed it and noticed that my volume/candlesticks are all grey until i go to a monthly chart. is there something missing in the code? all other symbols are showing up just fine..
