Why VOLUME color is not always red (green) if bid (ask) on the Tick chart?
i was sure, that all bid tick will have a red volume, ask tick will have a green volume, but it's not always so!

The coloring is based upon whether the trade occurred at a higher or lower price compared to the prior trade. However, this rule is not always true if the market trades at the same price for an extended time.
