Advanced Columns – Current Traded Volume

Table of Contents

Current-Traded-Volume (bid/ask/total) columns show the accumulated volume from a specific point in time at various price levels. In other words, it is a partial Volume Profile. The data used are only REAL TIME data. No historical data is considered.

You have 3 types of columns available:

  • Current Traded BID Volume: only volume filled at BID (where the aggressor is the seller) is considered.
  • Current Traded ASK Volume: only volume filled at ASK (where the aggressor is the buyer) is considered.
  • Current Traded TOTAL Volume: ALL filled volume is considered.

To add Current-Traded-Volume columns to your chart, please refer to this article: Advanced Columns

Add separately Price + Current Traded BID volume + Current Traded ASK Volume (or Price + Current Traded Total Volume) columns and position them correctly on chart

Main Properties #

Ticks per Row: Specifies the height (in ticks) of each price level. A tick is the minimum price movement (tick-size) defined in the instrument configuration. Usually, correct value for this property is 1. Other times it may be useful to set a higher value. This is the case of US-stocks where tick-size can be very small compared to instrument current price, making it necessary to group x price levels into one.

Reset: In addition to manual reset available by right-clicking on column > Reset or by double-clicking on column, you can reset the column automatically:

  • On Session Start: Resets column with each new session
  • At this time: Resets column at the specified time
  • Every: Resets column after the specified time interval. If Synchronize with session start property is checked, time interval is synchronized with session start, otherwise it starts from the instant in which the column is loaded/calculated.

Column Position: Defines the conlumn position relative to other advanced columns.
