Quick demo of the Display of Historical Profiles



The volume profile study allows for much flexibility. In the image below the Volume Profile is displaying a separate Profile historically for each day as opposed to just the current trading day. As an added tip this demo will show you how to highlight the trading days with a box instead of shading.
Image

To do this you need to pull up the study property You can either right click in the chart and select properties from the menu or click the Chart Properties button Image


  1. When you open the chart properties you can click on the General tab.
  2. Then left click in the value area and from there you can choose between background or Box. I have changed it to box so it will put a box around the trading days instead of shading it.
  3. Then I clicked on the Bar properties tab labled Sim Crude Oil Future and scrolled down to the VPR Study. To see how to add studies you can click link here to Add a study
  4. Finally you can left click in the value area to enable the Display Historical Profiles.

Important Tip:
Historical volume profiles only work on intra-day (smaller than 1 day) intervals and not on Tick or Volume bars. This will be added in the future, or as demand for it dictates. You can email support@ctsfutures.com with any questions or feature requests.
