Note: NT7 and NT8 are completely separate and different products…
No NT7 script.. mine or not.. will work with NT8..
All NT8 products had to be re-written from scratch…
This is why platform versions are not interchangeable,

Both computers are owned and operated by only yourself..

Same registration process is required for second machine:

Volume Profile Orderflow is only product that requires enabling Tick Replay!

Many of my other products might allow using tick data as a choice.. but in most cases..
For Best Efficiency vs Accuracy.. one minute data is used by default for calculations..

While tick data is a bit more accurate, it also requires much more resources..
In all my testing.. using one min data instead is very very close in accuracy,
but also doesn’t require near the overhead.. making it the much better choice
(imo) when it comes to accuracy vs efficiency vs possible chart lag/response..

VP Composite

Displays a volume histogram on either side of your chart, for a desired period of time.
Between any two dates, start and end.. usually a day from the past to the current bar
for a real time developing histogram of volume from a selected start date to present..

07.25.2017-10.15.30

VP Sessions

Displays a profile for whatever type of session you select. Seven Sessions Types Available
(Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly, Contract, etc.. (for instance below are both daily and weekly)

07.25.2017-10.19.58
07.25.2017-10.20.08

VP Dynamics

A manual drawing tool! Allows you to manually draw a profile anywhere you choose..
Simply click once to start and click again to end..

07.25.2017-10.20.27

Specials for Product Combinations located here:

VP Composite, Dynamics, and Sessions have choice between volume (VPO) or time (TPO)

When using TPO: time of bar you want tpo’s based on must also be chosen. (default 30min)
When using VPO: default calculations based on 1min data, for best accuracy vs efficiency.

While tick data is a bit more accurate, it also requires much more resources.
In all my testing.. using one min data instead is very very close in accuracy,
but also doesn’t require near the overhead.. making it the much better choice
(imo) when it comes to accuracy vs efficiency vs possible chart lag/response..

The histo currently doesn’t use letters.. the same style histo is used for both vpo/tpo.
Testing alternatives, but rendering all those letters seems a bit resource intensive..
