Description

I would like MC to offer the possibility to get a chart draw with volume instead of time in the axis. Main advantage is the an increase of volume will create a larger candel while a reduction of volume create a slimmer one

Steps to reproduce this issue

N.O.

In my opinion the request is wrong.
The Equivolume can be done with MC by just telling every bar or candle should consist of 1000 Contracts.
But what is definitly missing, are candlevolume charts.
A chart which alters the thickness of the candle body to account for more or for less volume. But this kind of chart will still be a 5 minute or whatever chart.
For that you need a timescale which adopts to the thickness of the candles.

I agree with FB2013's comment regarding candlevolume charts (dynamic timescale to account for varying bar widths based on volume). This would be an incredibly helpful feature to have.
