Is there a way to have an alert when the Total Volume for the current bar surpasses a % of the Total Volume of the previous bar? In the image attached I would have that 58314 alert and change background color or char color or anything if possible. Thank you in advance.

To do this, use the Color Background Based on Alert Condition study:

That study can make reference to the Numbers Bars Calculated Values study Subgraphs.

Thank you. Any chance you all can write the alert condition for me? I am afraid I could spend all weekend and still have no clue. If not I can ask around. Thanks again.

Compare volume only prior bar or more bars back?

I was actually looking to see if the Numbers Bar Calculated Value field itself could highlight. So in my image above the 58314 would highlight as soon as it reaches or gets above say 300% the previous volume.

I will check this out too, thank you.

I am an idiot never mind.... this is already built into the study. Should have known SC already thought of it. Sorry for the trouble.

OK so not figuring this out. The study above from Ackin seems to be what I am looking for but I cannot find it.

I am looking for the following:

Numbers Bars Calculated Values:

When Current Bar Total Volume is 400% >= Previous Bar Total Volume Highlight Background Red

I thought the NBCV study accomplished this but it does not. I have tried the suggested Color Background Based on Alert Condition but cannot get it to trigger at all.

If this is not possible I would gladly take an alert that colors the entire Numbers Bar based on the same condition.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,
Study "Volume percent from prior bar" (post #17)

It's possible download it for free from our CZ/SK forum.
