Current Bar Volume Label

Active member
Hi Guys/Gals,

I am trying to figure out how to add a label at the top of my chart (sorta the square box at top left corner on the image below) that shows current bar volume. For example when I hover the mouse over specific bar in volume chart it shows the exact volume of that bar, I would like that number to be shown up at top left squarish area (if possible). is this possible? needing this because I usually trade by looking at volume...

thank you

@BenTen Thank you for that Ben, it helped me a lot figuring this out on my own. So here the modified @horserider code i used to add the labels i needed (thank you horserider for your work). However, I still am not able to get volume of the bar I am hovering over as i can with TOS volume chart.
As you can see in the image below, at 6:46 am for example the TOS volume graph shows the volume to be 143.256 however, the Cur Bar shows 49,641 (which is the volume of the current bar going on at around 8:50 am. is there a way to achieve this or not really?

Here is the modified horserider code I used:


Code:
# Show total volume in gray.  Buying volume in green.  Sell Volume in red.
# Volume average is gray line.
# Specified percent over average volume is cyan triangles.
# Horserider 12/30/2019 derived from some already existing studies.




#Inputs

input Show30DayAvg = yes;
input ShowTodayVolume =  yes;
input ShowPercentOf30DayAvg = yes;
input UnusualVolumePercent = 200;
input Show30BarAvg = yes;
input ShowCurrentBar = yes;
input ShowPercentOf30BarAvg = yes;
input ShowSellVolumePercent = yes;

def O = open;
def H = high;
def C = close;
def L = low;
def V = volume;
def buying = V*(C-L)/(H-L);
def selling = V*(H-C)/(H-L);

# Selling Volume

Def SellVol = selling;

# Total Volume

# Note that Selling + Buying Volume = Volume.
def TV =  volume;



Def BuyVol = buying;

#Volume Data

def volLast30DayAvg = (volume(period = "DAY")[1] + volume(period = "DAY")[2] + volume(period = "DAY")[3] + volume(period = "DAY")[4] + volume(period = "DAY")[5] + volume(period = "DAY")[6] + volume(period = "DAY")[7] + volume(period = "DAY")[8] + volume(period = "DAY")[9] + volume(period = "DAY")[10] + volume(period = "DAY")[11] + volume(period = "DAY")[12] + volume(period = "DAY")[13] + volume(period = "DAY")[14] + volume(period = "DAY")[15] + volume(period = "DAY")[16] + volume(period = "DAY")[17] + volume(period = "DAY")[18] + volume(period = "DAY")[19] + volume(period = "DAY")[20] + volume(period = "DAY")[21] + volume(period = "DAY")[22] + volume(period = "DAY")[23] + volume(period = "DAY")[24] + volume(period = "DAY")[25] + volume(period = "DAY")[26] + volume(period = "DAY")[27] + volume(period = "DAY")[28] + volume(period = "DAY")[29] + volume(period = "DAY")[30]) / 30;
def today = volume(period = "DAY");
def percentOf30Day = Round((today / volLast30DayAvg) * 100, 0);
def avg30Bars = (volume[1] + volume[2] + volume[3] + volume[4] + volume[5] + volume[6] + volume[7] + volume[8] + volume[9] + volume[10] + volume[11] + volume[12] + volume[13] + volume[14] + volume[15] + volume[16] + volume[17] + volume[18] + volume[19] + volume[20] + volume[21] + volume[22] + volume[23] + volume[24] + volume[25] + volume[26] + volume[27] + volume[28] + volume[29] + volume[30]) / 30;
def curVolume = volume;
def percentOf30Bar = Round((curVolume / avg30Bars) * 100, 0);
def SellVolPercent = Round((Selling / Volume) * 100, 0);

# Labels

AddLabel(ShowTodayVolume, "Today: " + today, (if percentOf30Day >= UnusualVolumePercent then Color.GREEN else if percentOf30Day >= 100 then Color.ORANGE else Color.LIGHT_GRAY));
AddLabel(ShowCurrentBar, "Cur Bar: " + curVolume, (if percentOf30Bar >= UnusualVolumePercent then Color.GREEN else if PercentOf30Bar >= 100 then Color.ORANGE else Color.LIGHT_GRAY));


#####


input length = 14;
input averageType = AverageType.WILDERS;

DEF ATR1 = MovingAverage(averageType, TrueRange(high, close, low), length);

ADDLAbel (ATR1, "ATR:" + ATR1);



once again thank you @BenTen and @horserider,

Hi, I want to plot daily volume # on the chart and i want to add comma separator between thousands,
instead of showing 1666278, I want to 1,66,278 and I also want to increase the font, can some one help?
you could shift the decimal point and do some rounding, to display that number as 1.666 . and just remember the numbers represent millions. if you are looking at numbers in the millions, it doesn't really matter what the digit is in the hundreds place.
round( volume/1000000,3)
if the number is displayed with a bubble, could add text to remind you of the units
... + "M"

Post #3 above had what you are requesting in the code. Here are 2 ways to add bar volume, addlabel or addchartbubble that may be what you want. The addlabel is fixed to the upper left corner of the chart. The addchartbubble can be moved left/right by decreasing/increasing the bubblemover value. The volume is displayed comma separated.

Ruby:
input show_label = yes;
AddLabel(1, "Bar: " + volume, if close > open then Color.LIGHT_GREEN else Color.LIGHT_RED);

input show_bubble = yes;
input bubblemover = 5;
def n  = bubblemover;
def n1 = n + 1;
AddChartBubble(IsNaN(close[n]) and !IsNaN(close[n1]), close[n1], "Bar: " + volume[n1], if close[n1] > open[n1] then Color.LIGHT_GREEN else Color.LIGHT_RED);

Thanks, this is exactly what I wanted. I really appreciate your help on this.
