This indicator helps to identify suspicious volume.

The ratio of the current volume to the average of several previous candlesticks has been defined as standardized between 0 and 100.

When the volume line goes above 70 or below 30, we can assume that the trading volume is abnormal.

@alphabeta Yep, all you need to do is to add the following line to the end of the study and you'll be all set for that alert

Code:
Alert(sv_index crosses above highVol, "Crosses above 70 threshold", Alert.BAR, Sound.Ring);
