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.

Please note that 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.
