Only to be used with minute or daily charts.
The Relative Volume indicator measures the volume of a minute bar or a daily bar against the average volume for the same time of the day over the preceding n days. The indicator comes with two different options to calculate the relative volume:
All_Days: Today’s volume is compared to the average volume of the N preceding business days. The default value is N = 40. With the setting “All_Days” the indicator requires the use of proper trading hours templates which match the trading day of the instrument traded. Trading hours templates that cut the week into arbitrary sessions – such as the session template 24/7 – cannot be handled by the indicator and will trigger an error message.
Day_Of_Week: Today’s volume is compared to the average volume calculated for the same day of the week over the N preceeding weeks. The default value is N = 8. With the setting “Day_Of_Week”, all session templates can be handled.
Relative Volume: The relative volume is shown as a percentage of the average volume calculated over the reference period.
Cumulated ratio: Compares the cumulated volume of the current day to the average cumulated volume of the selected reference period.
Holidays: Holidays as selected via the indicator dialogue box may be excluded from all calculations.
Default settings: Relative volume bars between 80% and 120% of the normal volume are shown as white bars. Higher relative volume bars are shown as blue bars, lower relative volume bars are shown as red bars.
