Postby MeiHua » 01 Dec 2012

I am looking to reference the inside bid and inside ask volume. Is there anyway to do this?

Can you be more specific on what you want to do?

Please give an example, or draw an illustration on a chart?

I just want to get the value, then export it to a text file, basically i want to record the inside bid, inside bid volume, inside ask, and inside ask volume.

Open a 1 Tick chart with ->Settings->Chart Settings->Quote Field : Bid
then ticks returns the bidsize, not the trade size.

Code: Select all

if lastbaronchart_s then
print ( FormatTime ("HH:mm:ss",el_timetodatetime_s (time_s)) , ", insidebid : ",
close, ", inside bid volume :", ticks );
