Description

I think this is a very valuable addition to Volume profile, and a good step forward towards covering the gap between MC and other software like Investor RT.
The ability to see volume profile with a mouse selection of the screen would be fantastic.
Let's say you have on your screen a weeks' worth of data, and you want to see the volume profile for the last 3 days. You may select the three days with your mouse, and then, a "Composite" Volume Profile will show up for the 3 days.
Great feature ! You'll buy in many Investor RT fans which consider Investor RT a little too expensive or have an aversion for the "monthly payment" type of service.
More than that, you'll convert existing Investor RT users - as they have to pay monthly for Investor RT. They'll just switch and pay once for Multicharts.

Agreed, I think that adding instruments and making them invisible is cumbersome and annoying.

IMO, the most critical volume profile feature that MC is the ability to create a voluem profile of a range or balance area to find the high volume node and POC, which is one of the most important S/R levels. These balance areas do not neccesarilly cover a set number of days, and so they need to be selected with a selection box.
This is a feature that many of the top charting programs focused on volume profile allow you to do, (see http://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/doc_Tools.html#DrawVolumeProfile)) and it is extremely frustrating to not be able to do this in MC.

This is really a must have feature for MC!

Look at Futurestrader71 (well known Volume Profile trader using InvestorRT) in this video.

Being able to create several microcomposites and a larger composite at the same time, using the same time series, would attract InvestorRT users!
Look how he users VP in the video!
