Trying to get a Volume Profile to 1; isolate and plot opening 15 minutes of regular trading hour sessions and 2; color bid/ask. Also looking for a way to extend high, low, POC values to present and if there is a way to stop extension when price revisit.
Thanks a lot for all the scripts and directions here, very helpful!!
I am looking forward to add a column in watchlist which will display "BuyorSell".

I have a scan query which will display Unusual activity but I have no way to figure out if it was bought or sold. I am able to get the optioncode but not sure wether it was bought or sold.

I've noticed that with thinkorswim that none of the volume profile studies contain up/down volume. All I can gather from the volume profile indicator on TOS is what price orders are sitting at, but not knowing the spread between buy orders and sell orders is very limiting. Is there any way it can be done?
