ThinkorSwim label to show the current total volume traded and the total volume of the previous trading day.

Code:
declare upper;

input aggregationPeriod = AggregationPeriod.DAY;
def volume = volume(period = aggregationPeriod);
def old_volume = volume(period = aggregationPeriod)[1];
AddLabel(yes, Concat("Today's Total Volume = ", volume), color.orange);
AddLabel(yes, Concat("Previous Day Traded Volume = ", old_volume), color.red);

First time poster here. Love the site btw. This is a really cool indicator by Mobius.

I'm not sure if this is possible, but is there any way to show this indicator even when charting option chains? For instance, get this to show in the lower i.e. AMD stock volume when looking at an options chart for AMD. I wasn't sure if there was anything that could be done using GetUnderlyingSymbol(). I'm guessing that the BarNumber() messes that up trying to display the underlying stock volume on an options chart.

If anyone knows of a workaround please share.

Thanks!

I'm trying to add another condition to my scanner with no success, I want to add condition to scan all stocks that the current volume is equal or greater than 1milion for example... not total volume, the current volume... any ideas?

@Cheytac no, I do not believe that it is possible. Try reviewing the code & the manuals in the first entry of our Tutorial section.

@greges2109 please review the script. I noticed that there is an input for the study. Change that to 14.

@J007RMC Glad it could be brought to you!

A closer examination of the code in post #1 shows that it is written for intraday, i,e, aggregation periods less than DAILY. Hence you'll need to restate your request precisely what you're looking for so that @markos (whom you directed your response to) or one of the coders here can follow up with the specifics.

Thank you @tomsk and @markos ! I am new here but will be very much excited to learn from you.

I am looking for a script that will help me to calculate relative volume especially during trading the open.

The script above does almost what i have been looking for! The only difference that i would love to learn how to implement is to take a volume of each bar from the past 14 sessions (instead of a previous day only; for example a volume at9:31,9:32,9:33 etc each from previous 14 days) and calculate an average. Then use this value to compare to a volume at a current bar. I will be grateful so very much for your help! Thanks

From a technical standpoint there are a few issues you'll need to be aware of. If you want to keep track of bar volumes at each of the previous 14 days, you will need to maintain 14 separate variables. The other BIGGER problem is that in ThinkScript there's a midnight rollover that is somewhat a pain to code. These were the exact issues that were previously discussed in the Thinkscript lounge when similar requests were made, and that was the general consensus from the experts there.

This is a masterpiece. Thank you for this amazing piece of work. Mobius for creating this and @markos for sharing. Here's the updated version thanks to @skynetgen

I want to compare the previous day's volume to the current. basically, I want a code like this

When the market opens in the morning, if the first bar (30-minute aggregation period) is greater than or equal to the previous day's whole volume then color code/highlight it.

When the market opens in the morning, if the first bar (30-minute aggregation period) is greater than or equal to the previous day's whole volume then color code/highlight it.

here you go @Stoynks
This only works on 30 Minute Timeframe:
Code:
declare upper;

input pointInTime = 0929;

def isAppointedHour = if SecondsFromTime(pointInTime) > 0 then 1 else 0;

def volAtTime = if isAppointedHour == 1 and isAppointedHour[1] == 0 then volume
    else if isAppointedHour == 1 then volAtTime[1]
        else Double.NaN;
def vol30 = volAtTime;

def yvol =(volume(period = AggregationPeriod.DAY)[1]);

AddLabel (yes, "Yeterday Total Vol " +  (yvol) + "  Todays 30Min Vol " +  (vol30),(if vol30>yvol then color.green else color.red));

This code is great, and i try to use it for a scanner to find out the stock which volume is higher than previous day at same time.
But it shows "Secondary period not allowed: Day"
How can I solve this problem? Thanks!
Code:
declare on_volume;

input avgLength = 10;
input unusualpercent = 200;

def v = volume;
def vD = volume(period = AggregationPeriod.Day);
def c = close;
def x = BarNumber();
def nan = double.nan;
def RTHbar1 = if GetTime() crosses above RegularTradingStart(GetYYYYMMDD())
              then x
              else RTHbar1[1];
def RTH = GetTime() >= RegularTradingStart(GetYYYYMMDD()) and
          GetTime() <= RegularTradingEnd(GetYYYYMMDD());
def PrevRTHbar1 = if RTHbar1 != RTHbar1[1]
                  then RTHbar1[1]
                  else PrevRTHbar1[1];
def indexBar = RTHbar1 - PrevRTHbar1;
def prevVol = if IsNaN(c)
               then nan
               else GetValue(v, indexBar);

def Vol = v;

AssignPriceColor(if close > open then CreateColor(5, 250, 12) else CreateColor(250, 5, 25));
def avgPrev = Average(prevVol, avgLength);
def avgCurr = Average(Vol, avgLength);
def prevDailyVol = if RTH and !RTH[1]
                   then getValue(v, indexBar)
                   else if RTH
                        then compoundValue(1, prevDailyVol[1] + GetValue(v, indexBar), GetValue(v, indexBar))
                   else prevDailyVol[1];
def TodaycumVol = if RTH and !RTH[1]
                   then v
                   else if RTH
                        then compoundValue(1,  TodaycumVol[1] + v, v)
                   else TodaycumVol[1];
def todaybar=RTHbar1-x;
#plot data=TodaycumVol;
#plot data2= PrevRTHbar1;

def compvolume=vD/prevDailyVol*100;

plot comp= compvolume > unusualpercent;
was there ever a solution to the "Secondary period not allowed: Day" problem for the scanner?
