Volume Profile Analysis (Sierra Chart only)


Order Flow Suite for Sierra Chart allows the following tools to be applied to Volume Profile studies as well as chart bars/footprints:

  • EDGE Zones
  • Price Rejector Pro
  • Small Prints

When used in combination with Sierra Chart’s Volume by Price volume profile study, this allows for powerful analysis of volume that is independent of the chart type/period being used and can be an efficient use of screen space.

Example applications

Apply Volume by Price using ‘Multiple Profiles Based On Fixed Time’ on a fast chart; for example, create multiple 30-minute profiles on a 15-second chart. You can now apply emoji tools to the latest profile in the chart and have a view of order flow events in a 30 minute chart while watching a 15-second chart.

Apply Volume by Price using ‘One Period Based On Bar Count’. Set the bar count to match a technical analysis indicator period, e.g. Bollinger Bands. You can now apply emoji tools to this profile and qualify what is happening in the last x bars that are being used to determine the technical analysis indicator.
