How do I get Large Volume Trade Indicator to show as soon as the threshold is met, rather than at close of the bar?

The Large Volume Trade Indicator updates as the bar is forming - it does NOT do an update until the close of the bar.

Why do you say that it is only updating at bar close?

Oh, maybe I am just wrong on this. I use it on 15 second charts and that's just what it looked like to me. If I lower update interval it will probably show up faster right?

I also have the combine trades setting on. Does that delay it?

The bar period does not matter - it should be showing as soon as there is a trade that matches your settings, but 15 seconds is relatively short, so it could appear that they are not showing until the bar closes - but this would just be happenstance. To verify this, set your threshold to a lower value to see the data increment as new trades are added.

Also, the Combine Trades does not delay the updating of the chart.

The one item you would want to check is your "Chart Update Interval". There are two values for this, a Chart Specific one and a Global One. By default, all new charts are set to use the Global Chart Update Interval, and by default this is set to 500 milliseconds (one half of one second). Start by checking "Chart >> Chart Settings >> Display >> Chart Update Interval". If this is set to 0, then that means to use the Global Chart Update Interval. The Global Chart Update Interval is set at "Global Settings >> General Settings >> General >> Chart Update Interval". Make sure this is set to a reasonable value (such as 500). Refer to the following:
General Settings Window: Chart Update Interval (Global Settings >> General Settings >> General >> Update Intervals)
