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.

Dual volume bars

I saw this pic searching one night, looks really useful. I know the platform pictured is thinkorswim. Does anyone have the code for this volume indicator? Thanks

I can't think of a way to script this in ToS..
the calculation to deduce the buy vs sell volume for each bar is possible to a reasonable accuracy, but putting the two histograms side by side against each bar won't work in ToS.

if my guess is right, this screen comes from someone's wishlist of what should be available in ToS (manually creating this view), not an actual thing. just my take on this,
