2.0 Volume Lines Settings

Lookback Volume: 0 means that limited volume bars are used, however, this setting has the most impact if you have enabled “Active Trend Volume”

If you have selected “Active Trend Volume”, a higher “Lookback Volume” means that you set the LongTerm volume drift.

Activate Trend Volume – Enables us to identify the overall volume-price direction.

Set Trend Volume Length: Adjust how sensitive the calculations should react to changes. Low value = quicker. This setting shall only be used if you have enabled “Active Trend Volume”

Active Aggressive Volume: This setting has the most impact if you have disabled “Active Trend Volume” It enhances the volume pattern and can be a nice feature to enable if you don’t use “Active Trend Volume”

Use Custom Source: If the chart does not have volume, enable this feature. Taking the volume pattern and applies it to the source you have selected. Should not be any big differences between the original volume pattern and Custom Source.

Custom Source: select any source that you want to push through the calculations!
