OandaX Positive Ratio
The OandaX product series is designed to display additional data on orders and positions provided by the Oanda FxLabs service.
The OandaX Positive Ratio indicator is designed to display the history data on the ratio of buyers and sellers, who have a profitable position on the instrument, to the total number of buyers and sellers. In the Volume weighted mode, the ratio also takes into account the profit/loss size of the positions (distance from the position opening price to the current price).
For the constant update of data it is necessary for the OandaX Download Manager EA to be running in the terminal. To display the previously downloaded data, the EA is not required.
The history is available for 16 instruments: AUDJPY, AUDUSD, EURAUD, EURCHF, EURGBP, EURJPY, EURUSD, GBPCHF, GBPJPY, GBPUSD, NZDUSD, USDCAD, USDCHF, USDJPY, XAUUSD, XAGUSD. The minimum step of history data is 20 minutes, but depending on the history depth the step can increase up to 24 hours, there can also be unexpected gaps.
The data is downloaded and saved by UTC time, therefore, for the correct display of the histogram time, set the correct time zone of your broker server relative to UTC in the indicator settings (TimeOffset)
- Use Custom Instrument - True, if you have non-standard instrument names or if you need to display a histogram of another instrument on the chart;

- For iCustom - True, if you want to call the indicator from an expert advisor or another indicator using the iCustom function. In this case, the indicator will not be calculated in portions, but for the entire available history, therefore, it may slow down the terminal for some time. If this setting is not used during a call, there may be issues with the indicator calculation time, or the data of the derived indicator may not be displayed at all (for example, during the weekends)
