    For many of you subscribe to the classical trading philosophies of legendary traders like Jesse Livermore and Richard Wyckoff, there is probably no need for me to further emphasize the importance of volume here. Over the years I’ve read many, many trading books, and after reading many of these classical traders’ books, pamphlets, and articles, I realized my current toolset for analyzing volume was insufficient.

    Most trading websites tell you to watch for volume surges, and there are many ways of determining when a surge is happening. Some relative volume indicators simply check to see when volume is above its moving average. But these measures are highly inaccurate, especially at certain times of the day. Volume is always going to be higher at the open and the close, and these extremes skew the moving average for the rest of the day, making it basically useless.

    What I really needed was a way to see what the average volume was for a given bar at a specific time of day, and then to compare the current volume to that bar’s average to see if there was anything unusual going on. So I set about trying to develop ways of automating my volume analysis as much as possible, and making it abundantly obvious whenever there was a trading anomaly in the works. And that journey led to this set of ThinkScript studies for ThinkOrSwim, which provide an easy, visual way for stock traders to quickly determine if a tradable event is occurring.
