For some instruments, like Forex pairs, there are no actual volume data available. For those instruments, you can use Up Down Tick data to get  idea about actual traded volumes. And if you want to plot Buy volume for those instruments, you can select “UpDownTick” – in Volume Type settings for the indicator like Image -2. Otherwise, if you are trying to use this indicator with any instrument which does have Volume data from exchange, you can use “Ask ” – in Volume Type settings like Image – 3. If you want to change the color settings, Dash Style, Plot Style, Width etc, you should be able to set them as you prefer from the Plot settings of this indicator as marked with Red rectangle  in Image -4.

Now, this indicator works only with intraday Time Based Minute bar type chart. If you try to use this indicator with Daily or above ie any time frame chart other than intraday time frame, it will show you a message on indicator panel to inform you to use only intraday time frame chart for this indicator like as it shows in Image -5. 


This indicator can be effectively used on Time Based bar types only. It does not work for other bar types. However, if you don’t remember and try to use bar type anything other than Candle stick bars, it will show you a message on indicator panel to inform you to use only Time Based Minute bar type for this indicator the way you can see in Image – 6.
