Symbol Volume

From MultiCharts
Jump to: navigation, search

Returns the volume of the current bar.

For tick and volume-based charts, and time-based charts with resolutions of 24 hours or less:

  • the volume traded on Up ticks will be returned if Build Volume On is set to Trade Volume
  • the number of Up ticks in the current bar will be returned if Build Volume On is set to Tick Count

For time-based charts with resolutions of 1 day or more:

  • the total volume traded will be returned if Build Volume On is set to Trade Volume
  • the total number of ticks in the current bar will be returned if Build Volume On is set to Tick Count

Note

Most data feeds provide only a limited history of volume and tick data; storing real-time feed data will ensure the availability of historical volume and tick data.

The range of returned values is not limited by the MaxBarsBack setting. This keyword can return the value of any bar of the data series.

Usage
