Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Average Volume Question/s

While I'm able to see the average volume on my charts, it somehow seems to not be available on the Scan tab, in two respects. One can scan based upon multiple criteria, including volume, but not the average volume? Seems odd to me. And in the scan results, there are tons of data that can selected to be included, but no average volume. Am I missing something? As a reference point, the average volume is significant, I feel.

When I asked about a year ago, I was provided this ThinkScript:


This yielded some goofy results, in some cases in what appeared to be scientific notation. Support then modified it to this:

VolumeAvg(50).VolAvg / 1000

It still looks strange as I get a decimal in odd places, often with several digits after the decimal...

If you have average volume on your TOS scans or Watchlists, please share how you accomplished this. Thank you.
