PipTick Bid Ask Volume MT5

PipTick Bid-Ask Volume indicator is a tool that needs every scalper and intraday trader. It uses a special algorithm to determine the activity of buyers and sellers and displays it in the form of histogram. With this feature, the trader can easily compare the level of aggression on the part of buyers and sellers and read the context of the market.

As we all know, the forex market is decentralized and therefore we do not have a reliable information about real volume. We also do not know actual and historical values of the Bid volume (Sellers volume) and Ask volume (Buyers volume). However, we can use tickcount volume of Bid and Ask prices to determine the activity of buyers and sellers! So, with our special algorithm we can get a very similar volume as in the futures market. With this functionality, we are able to analyze the flow of buy and sell orders.

How to use PipTick Bid-Ask Volume indicator

First, we must note that it is absolutely counterproductive to use our indicator on the higher time-frames. The number of buyers and sellers is balanced on the higher time-frames, so the indicator has no informative value. That's why we recommend to use it on the charts from M1 to M5.

The order flow context of the market should be analyzed for the last ten to thirty minutes. It is always necessary to assess the activity of both sides, buyers and sellers.

Basically, there are several scenarios of the order flow context:

Buyers and Sellers activity
