Volume Pro is very complete volume profile column that displays, value areas, and volume deltas either Diagonal Deltas or Linear Deltas, filters and reconstructs traded volume, auto clears on a big trade or based on delta, plus many more options.
Data Type #
Data Type allows to choose from different sources of data, Trading Sessions, and Time Durations.
Volume Profile Duration #
Select From various types durations for the Volume Profile. You will be able to the Volume Profile to: Current Session, Previous Session, Current Week, Previous Week, Current Month, Previous Month, Minutes Bar and Seconds Bar. While using larger timeframes it will take longer to long as we use tick data.
Data Type #
Select From different types of Volume Profiles:
Buys – Will display only trades that occur at the ask or above.
Sells – Will display only trades that occur at the bid and below.

This will allow you see the volume ratio between buys and sells.
Minute Bars/Seconds Period #
Sets the duration of the “MinutesBars” in Volume Profile Duration.
Volume Pro allows you to filter any trade size and count and display trades based on your filtering criteria.
Filter Mode #
Filter Mode is a very useful and advanced setting. You can spot price levels that were traded by large lot traders, small trades and much more. Filter mode inherits the value from Filter Value. This setting allows you to apply several types of filtering conditions:
Equal – Display volume that is equal to the Filter Value. Useful if you are tracking a particular quantity of volume traded.
Does Not Equal – Displays volume were the trades do not match the value of Filter Value. Useful if you do not want to see one lot trades, for example.
Less Than – Filters the volume that is lower than the specified Filter Value. Useful to see the activity of small trades.
Less Than or Equal– Expands the previous Filter Mode allowing you to include the value specified in the Filter Value.
Greater Than – Display volumes that are above the Filter Value. This is a common setting among volume profile. Allows you to spot the large traded quantities and price levels that traded heavily.
Greater Than or Equal – expands the previous Filter Mode, allowing you to include the value set on Filter Value option. Like the previous Filter Mode, this setting allows for an easy display of were large trade volume.
Filter Value #
The value used to filter the column.
Reconstruct Trades for Filtering #
Enable the reconstruction and consolidation of smaller trades when filtering the volume profile. Thus filtering for the reconstructed value of the trade and not the linear size of the trade. You will be able to for example set the filter value of 10, If you have reconstructed trades enable it will reconstruct the trades prior to evaluating the value.
Value Area/VPOC #
Here you will be able to control the display and value options for the Value Area and VPOC (Volume Point of Control)
Show VA and VPOC #
Sets the visibility of the Volume Value Area and the Volume Point of Control. Enabled will color the bars with a different color.
Value Area Percentage #
Sets the Value Area Percentage. By default, its set at 68.2% that equal one standard deviation limit of the volume traded. This will color the bars that account for 68.2% of the volume on the column. Although most traders use 68.2% or 70%. There is no reason why you could not customize this setting. You could easily have another volume column set to 95.4%, which is the second standard deviation value.
Value Area Color #
Sets the color for the Volume Value Area.
VPOC Color #
Sets the color for the Volume Point of Control. The largest traded price (with the most volume) where we observe the maximum of the Volume Profile.
Visual Parameters #

Increase Font Size #
This allows you to increase the font size while displaying the same number of rows. This option as a range between 0 and 3. Zero will make no changes to the font size selected in the SuperDOM properties and effectively add more space around the cells. This option tries to give you better visibility of the text.
Text to Display #
Volume – display traded volume at price.
Percentage – display the percentage of volume by price. Useful to compare between days or instruments as a percentage is a ratio or a relative number and expressed as a fraction. This is also useful if you are looking at low/high volume areas that are below a certain percentage value.
