Post From: A meter and an alert on volume bars

Is there a chance tp see how many contracts are left before a volume bar will be closed? - maybe there is a meter that counts contracts fulfilling a bar or how many contracts are left before the bar will be fulfilled?

The Countdown Timer study will do this. Just add it to a Volume based chart and it will show the remaining volume for the current bar. Refer to the information here:
Countdown Timer

Secondly, can I set an alert (rining) when a volume bar is closed?

To alert when the the current bar is closed each time, open the Chart Settings window and go to the Alert tab. Enter the following for the alert:
= 1

This means the alert is always active. Then set the following options:
- Evaluate on Bar Close = Yes
- Reset Alert Condition on New Bar = Yes

Choose the Alert number you want for your alert.
