Volume Pace Indicator for MC.Net

Here is a Volume "Pace of Tape" indicator that provides very useful indications of upcoming market reversals. It works by calculating order volume per second, and changes the indicator colour to yellow when the volume pace exceeds the standard deviation value setting. The average volume pa...

Re: BetterVolume indicator

The PaintBar version changes the bar colours on the price series in the main window, whereas the original version creates a new volume indicator on the chart. Otherwise they are identical in how they interpret volume and select colours. I found it was much easier to work with them as two separate in...

MC64 V9 RC (Build 9878) - aiRealTimeCalc

This appears to be a bug in the latest release candidate:

When "Jump" is used to step through bar history, the aiRealTimeCalc value returned in a signal switches from 0 (history mode) to 1 (real time) after stepping through the first bar.
