Thanks

On this same subject, I have been trying to figure out how code the volume profile to start at a specific bar. I looked at Anchored VWap type code to see if I could anchor the profile, but I can't. I would appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks.

That particular volume profile is not a TOS indicator to my knowledge. It is supposed to show buy/sell volume at each price point. I have never seen that for TOS. The TOS built-in Volume Profile is in studies. Just type profile and profile and several profiles will pop up.

Hi there

I new to this platform, cheers to all. I was wondering if someone could help or knows of a similar indicator.
I found this Volume at Price indicator FreeStockcharts.com website and looks very similar to the Volume Profile on TOS.
Can the VolProf indicator on TOS be modified or adjusted to show the overall Call/Put volume flow or sentiment as the one depicted below on the left hand side?

Otherwise any suggestions as to something similar?

I found this one on Freestockcharts platform, its from TC2000 I believe.

yes its from another platform and have Vol Profile, but would like to get something like this either coded or modify the VolProfile to get something similar

not sure what are showing me here, i asked is they were able to figure out the volume profile,

Here are the modifications to the MonkeyBar Indicator that were suggested above by @JT_479. The image shows the normal volumeprofile script on the left and the modified MonkeyBars on the right expansion.

ah thank you soo much, hopefully one day TOS has it flipped and to the right just like tradingview, not crazy about the aesthetics of this style plotted on a chart....

See if using the normal volumeprofile showing it with input onExpansion = yes; is what you want

Hi, Is there any custom study/code available in TOS to mimic the Volume Profile indicator in Trading view? I know there is VolumeProfile Indicator in TOS but it is plotting from left to right. I am looking for one which is plotting right to left on right axis. Thanks in advance.

can help with a small code, im getting confused somehwere,,,

AddLabel(Show30DayAvg, "D:"+ Round(volLast30DayAvg, 0), Color.WHITE);

id like to code it to stay red under 1million, dark green when greater than 1million, bright green when over 2million,,

would really help seeing volume on a label when i have a bunch of stocks up on a flex grid watching for breakout

Try this

Ruby:
input Show30DayAvg  = yes;
def volLast30DayAvg = 2000100;
AddLabel(Show30DayAvg, "D:" + Round(volLast30DayAvg, 0), if volLast30DayAvg < 1000000 then Color.RED else if Between(volLast30DayAvg, 1000000, 2000000) then Color.DARK_GREEN else Color.GREEN);

thank you i will mess with it,,, for some reason its just showing fixed green at D:2,000,100 Even when i switch from ticker to ticker
That is because you did not give me the whole code, so I hard coded amounts in that input to test the addchartbubble code. Just try adding the addchartbubble portion of my code snippet to your code.
