Volume Profile for Futures Only


New member
Long time lurker, but wanted to say I really appreciate this site and all of the members here.

Question: Is there a way to configure Volume Profile to display only the Globex overnight session?

Ideally, I would like to have 2 Volume Profile studies on the same chart. One for the night and day sessions separated.

All the best,

Hmm. I'm not sure. But maybe you can try to implement some sort of time limit into the Volume Profile indicator?
Thank you for pointing me in the right direction, sir.

I think I've got an idea of how to do it lol, I can't seem to figure out how to isolate the time period from 3p pst to 6:30a pst following day to implement within the volume profile period


I was looking for the same function as Im getting into TPO and Volume Profiles more on TOS, consider using the SecondsFromTime() function.
I would appreciate any updates :)

Hi, try this:

input pricePerRowHeightMode = {AUTOMATIC, TICKSIZE, default CUSTOM};

input customRowHeight = 1.0;

input timePerProfile = {CHART, default MINUTE, HOUR, DAY, WEEK, MONTH, "OPT EXP", BAR};

input multiplier = 1;

input onExpansion = no;

input profiles = 1;

input showPointOfControl = yes;

input showValueArea = yes;

input valueAreaPercent = 70;

input opacity = 7;

def period;

def yyyymmdd = getYyyyMmDd();

def seconds = secondsFromTime(0);

def month = getYear() * 12 + getMonth();

def day_number = daysFromDate(first(yyyymmdd)) + getDayOfWeek(first(yyyymmdd));

def dom = getDayOfMonth(yyyymmdd);

def dow = getDayOfWeek(yyyymmdd - dom + 1);

def expthismonth = (if dow > 5 then 27 else 20) - dow;

switch (timePerProfile) {

case CHART:

case BAR:

then 1

def plotsDomain = IsNaN(close) == onExpansion;

DefineGlobalColor("Profile", GetColor(1));
