Dear Friends,

Can anyone have this trade volume index indicator for mt4. It should be coded like this,

The trade volume index is calculated by using the following formula

MTV = Minimum Tick Value

Change = Price minus the extreme price since direction changed

If Change is greater than MTV, then Direction = Accumulate

If Change is less than MTV, then Direction = Distribute

If Change is less than or equal to MTV and Change is greater than or equal to MTV, then Direction = Last Direction

Lastly, we must calculate the TVI, which is simple once you know the Direction.

If Direction is Accumulate, then TVI = previous TVI + Volume

If Direction is Distribute, then TVI = previous TVI - Volume

You are right Dennish ... volume can not be measure in forex because the data does not exist.

But they are talking about a simple "tick counter" ...that counts ticks per time frame..1m, 5m, etc.

To me, very much worthless information and not indicative of real volume traded in any way.
