DELTA

Postby Jimmyrakete » 12 Nov 2019

Does anyone have a way I can get the delta of a bar displayed?

so ASK - Bid

example ASK 400
Bid -500

Delta = -100

Go to the Wiki

Look for the section:
PowerLanguage Keyword Reference

Under
Quote Fields‎ (36 P)

Look for:

InsideAsk
InsideBid

You have already done the programming above:

Code: Select all

var:
Delta(0);

Delta = InsideASK - insideBid;
Note: InsideAsk and InsideBid are quote fields.

Hello, Jimmyrakete!

Go Format -> Instrument -> Settings tab and check Show delta -> Volume Delta -> Ask Traded vs Bid Traded. Then switch to the Style tab and in the Chart type section select Profile.
These and other settings of the Volume delta charts are described here:
