Description

It's hard to say what is it — a bug or a feature request. In my opinion it's a bug.

Please take a look at screenshot.

The Volume Profile option in TPO settings is useless, because you can't correctly analyze chart where 101K bar is several times smaller than 30K bar.
Resolution: it can be easily fixed by making session volume relative to all bars at chart. In this case 30K will be ~3 times smaller than 100K.\

Steps to reproduce this issue

TPO Chart, Volume Profile enabled.

Thanks for your suggestion. However, there are the following reasons why we cannot accept the suggested display method.

  1. Histogram width corresponds to the whole bar width. In screenshot examples one bar is narrower and another is wider.
  2. If we make one bar wider, other bars will look too narrow.
  3. If we implement bars of the same width, it will greatly reduce performance.
  4. If we implement bars of the same width, the whole data series will be rebuilt when a new bar comes. Currently only the latest bar is rebuilt.
