As a result of a couple great threads here and some friendly traders, I have been using Volume Based Charts (aka Share Bar Charts) in my trading. It has helped tremendously.
Today however, I noticed something on TradeStation that got my attention...
As you can see, this is an EC chart set at a 500 interval. All the parts highlighted in yellow represent a candle that is over the 500 setting, which defeats the purpose of having a volume based chart up.
So, I am asking for help of those using something other than TS for charting - if you could be so kind as to first see if your charting platform supports Volume Based Charts (aka Share Bars) and then add a volume histogram to the bottom of it and see if the volume is nice and uniform or if it is like my pic above. Please post all feedback here so we can help each other out!
