Volume indicator showing total, buy, and sell volumes as a histogram. Also average volume as a line plot. Bars with a specified percent over the average volume are marked on the bar. Additional Volume information provided by labels.

Rework of the previous study to show better representation of what volume is doing. Please consider replacing the old study if you are using it.
