Time and Sales Ask Size
Time and Sales Bid Size
The Time and Sales Ask/Bid Size studies display the individual best Bid Size or Ask Size values that have been received from the data feed for the symbol.
There is a direct column to column correspondence between these studies which display the Bid Size or Ask Size and the Time and Sales Bid and Time and Sales Ask studies. What this means is that at any column in the chart, the values you see for the Bid and Ask prices will correspond to the sizes you see from the Time and Sales Bid Size and Time and Sales Ask Size studies.
This study has a dependency on the Time and Sales data. To adjust the number of stored Time and Sales records, refer to Number of Stored Time and Sales Records.
At each chart column, the values of the Time and Sales studies do not correspond timewise to the individual chart bars. Instead they just represent the most recent Time and Sales data received from the data feed. With the rightmost value being the most recent and the leftmost value being the oldest available value.
Display Sizes/Quantities As Values
To display the Bid or Ask Sizes/Quantities as values instead of a line, go to the Subgraphs Tab in the Study Settings window for the study. Set the Draw Style for Subgraph 1 (SG1) to Value of Subgraph.
- Size Filter >=: Any Bid/Ask Size which equals or greater than this value, will be displayed and not filtered. The default value is 1.
- Size Filter <= (0 means no limit): Any Bid/Ask Size which equals or is less than this value, will be displayed and not filtered. The default value is 0 which disables this filter.
