Aggressive Volume Study –Use the Aggressive parameter on Constant Volume Bar, CVBXData, Tick, and Tick Smoothing charts. –By turning on the Aggressive parameter, the volume study plots the number of orders being executed. Example: –The standard volume indicator may show that the volume in the current bar is 100 contracts traded. You don’t know if it was twenty orders or just two orders (large traders). The Aggressive parameter reveals this information. Monitor large trade activity
Volume Threshold –The parameter ranges from 0 – 1000000, all trades with volumes greater than this value are treated as large. –The volume is displayed as a histogram at the bottom of the chart. –Colors highlight the amount of volume greater than the threshold. –The volume values are displayed in the cursor value box.
