Indicator plotting time in the volume based charts or volume delta charts.

Indicator plotting time in the volume based charts or volume delta charts. Does anybody know if there is a way to plot time under the chart in chart where each bar is plotted by volume or delta volume? For example each bar is created when 1000 contract traded or 500 delta volume traded...but I want to know how long it took for this bar to get created.
Thanks

You didn't put this in a specific platform subforum, so we need to know what platform you are talking about.

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.
6)

Is it not plotted on the x-axis?

I am not sure if anybody thought about this before, so if it was discussed in different thread, excuse me. The concept I have in mind goes like this. If I look at the chart with the timeframe controlled by delta volume ( in Sierra chart it is called delta volume by bar), it becomes obvious that it will take different time for each bar to get created. Since the delta volume reflects the market driven orderflow, I assume that bars that got created faster are the ones that reflect urgency....therefore it can be beginning of momentum. And the bars that needed more time to be created lack this urgency. So I am interested in those bars and go in the same direction that were created quickly.
Another thing is volatility of these bars. If there is a bar that was formed quickly and has rather large volatility, it means that there is also no resistance in the orderbook (limit orders) which would absorb the market driven orderflow (volume delta).

I would like to hear from anybody interested in developing this idea. Iam sure this is just the small step.

Maybe this is what you are seeking?

This 1000 Volume bars with an indicator called virtual bars.

The virtual bars are set for a time of 5 minutes.
They can be adjusted to any time period or volume or number of bars.

They were posted in this thread some time ago.
