Market Breadth and UP/Down volume


Guest backwardation

Question

Guest backwardation

Hello, I'm looking for a market breadth indicator for indices.  It is simply computed on a stock market by taking the ratio of the number of advancing stocks to declining stocks.  Looks like this: 

 

 

I'm also looking for an UP/Down volume indicator that shows the volume of long to short.  Its useful in identifying reversals.  This would only work for instruments with real volume not tick volume.  Looks like this:

Do we have anything similar on IG's platform or on PRT?

One of the best market breadth indicators is Advance Decline which comes as either a line or ratio, see pic below.

@Caseynotes I Found this bull/bear volume indicator for ProRealTime.  I haven't used it yet, but it seems nice. https://www.prorealcode.com/prorealtime-indicators/bear-bull-volume-indicator/ 

 

 

@dmedin  you should take a look at this, so instead of the volume bar being coloured by whether there were more long or short contracts (maybe a lot, may be just a few) there is an actual breakdown of the amount of long or short.

This is really handy.  I've got it added to PRT.  👍

I've been playing with it for the past few hours.  It's very impressive and helpful.  I still can't decide if the moving average crossovers are valuable, but the dual colored bars definitely do give an edge.
