Volume at Price
Volume at Price indicator gives an approximation of volume at each price level. Volume is vital when determining which price level is strong and which is not.
With this indicator which estimates the volume at each price level by using some sort of statistical techniques along with Tick Volume, you will be able to detect the areas of high volume and the areas of low volume or even volume divergence and gaps in volume.
Interpretation of the volume chart is estimated by the user: some traders will use high volume areas as strong support or resistant levels, whereas others will use areas with low volume as the strong level of support or resistant levels. It can't be used as stand alone indicator, use it as decision support tool that confirms trading decisions of your own strategy.
