For instruments like Forex pairs, there are no actual volume data coming from exchanges. For those instruments, you can use Up Down Tick data to get realistic idea about actual traded volumes. And if you want to plot Buy Sell volumes for those instruments, you can select “UpDownTick” – in Volume Type settings for the indicator (Image -5). Otherwise, if you are trying to use this indicator with any instrument which does have Volume data coming from exchange, you can use “AskBid ” – in Volume Type settings (Image – 6).
