collecting live volume on the Dow

Postby vsatrader » 10 Dec 2007

I am adding up the real volume on an excel spread sheet, and I want to have the bar charts for the price on the top part of the chart and have the real volume from the excel sheet underneath as a normal chart.

How do I do this please? have looked at the tutorials, and can collect price through a excel spread sheet, but I cannot collect volume as well.

Regards

Hi vsatrader,

Both the price and volume data are collected from DDE. But it's the price that will be plotted on the chart. To have the volume plotted, just apply a volume indicator (it is one of the indicators built into MultiCharts) to your chart - and you will have the volume shown in the lower part of the chart.

If you need any further help with that, please let me know.

Best regards.

I have the price, but cannot get the volume into the database, the dde is adding up the price change and displaying it as volume.

Hi vsatrader,

Could you please send a screenshot with the dde template settings you're using?

Thank you.

Regards.
