Default EquiVolume Chart Style

We've received a few requests to add an "EquiVolume Bars" Chart Style for NinjaTrader 8, and it seems to be a fairly popular chart style for futures traders and others who rely on volume signals along with basic price action on their charts.

To that end, I've created an EquiVolume Chart Style for NinjaTrader 8 to share with the community. I'll be uploading this to the Version 7 Indicators sharing forum temporarily until we have a proper home for it in a NinjaTrader 8 file sharing forum.

Overview
  • Identifies the highest single-bar volume displayed on the chart canvas (the visible bars on the chart at a given time)
  • Separates bars into three distinct widths: a Small width for volume less than 1/3rd of the highest volume, a Large width for volume greater than 3/4ths of the highest volume, and a Medium width for everything in between
Properties
  • Features three user-defined properties: "High Volume Modifier," "Medium Volume Modifier," and "Low Volume Modifier," which will set the modification for each volume category, based on the "Base Width" property.
  • Re-draws widths immediately when the visible range of the chart is changed.
Enjoy, and of course, feel free to edit this to suit your individual preferences or trading style.

Hello,

I used a previously developed version of the chart style which was made for NinjaTrader 7 as a starting point for this chart style. The core logic is a bit different, but the NinjaTrader 7 version works well, from what I can see. You can find the script linked in the post below:

Hi,

So I downloaded the .cs file and put it in the indicators folder. It compiled fine, but how do I enable it? It;s not listed under Indicators.

Thanks

EquiVolume is a Chart Style. You can put it in your ChartStyle folder instead, and then select it the same way you would select "Candlestick," "OHLC," "Line on Close," etc.

Hello everyone,

I have updated the EquiVolume chart style so that you are now able to modify the candle body outline and the candle wick.

Please let me know if I may be of any further assistance.
