[User Discussion] - Displaying a Study subgraph value as text without a Y-axis

Is there a way to display a study subgraph's value as text for each bar without the value being plotted on the y-axis? I want to see all the values in one row.
For example, I want to add the volume study below a 5 min bar chart but I don't want to see the volume bars but just the volume values.

Here are some things I have tried that show me the values but don't put all the values in one row (I want to get rid of the y-axis).
1. Add the "Volume" study and change the Draw Style for Volume to "Value of Subgraph".
2. Add the "Study Subgraph Above/Below Bar as Text" study and set the Input Study Subgraph to the Volume study's Volume subgraph.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

You can do this using a couple of built in SC studies. There might be other ways, but you basically want to create bars with value of zero and base your setup on that.

Take Volume study as example. Use the volume study set the SG drawstyle to Value on High. Hide the study.

Add the "color bar based on alert condition" study.
Add the "Bars in Ticks" study. Set based on to "color bar based on alert condition" study.
Add the "Study/Price Overlay" study. Set the same chart region as "Bars in ticks". Set study to overlay the Volume study.

This will set your volume number at the High of each bars in ticks which is zero, so they align horizontally in the chart region.

Kind regards,

This worked great for me. But am trying to integrate a Relative Volume study subgraph as closely as I can into Numbers Bars Calculated Value layout. Any user suggestions to do that?

I had the question before so I just added a new study to my Free Bundle. It is called "SG Values grid". This study allows you to show the actual SG values of each bar in a numeric grid. The SG values are taken from the selected study SG's inside the study settings. Study Sg's can also be selected from other charts in your chartbook. This study allows for 10 rows of SG values to be shown.

You can get the FreeBundle here:


If you already have the bundle, just restart SC and it will auto-download.

You can give the SG its own shortname. That's about it.
