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.

Volume spikes

Hey all, would appreciate some assistance with the following tos code.
The code plots volume spikes on the upper part of the chart, just under the corresponding candle.
My objective is to have the code display only during regular market hours, as premarket plotting creates a lot of excess noise on the chart.

input price = close;

input VolumeFastLength = 1;
input VolumeSlowLength = 20;

def VolumeOsc = (Average(volume, VolumeFastLength) - Average(volume, VolumeSlowLength)) / Average(volume, VolumeSlowLength);
plot VolumeSpike = VolumeOsc > 1;
