Dollar volume is an extremely important metric for finding stocks with enough liquidity for market makers to position themselves in. Market Liquidity is defined as market's feature whereby an individual or firm can quickly purchase or sell an asset without causing a drastic change...
Up/Down Volume Ratio is calculated by summing volume on days when it closes up and divide that total by the volume on days when the stock closed down.
High volume up days are typically a sign of accumulation(buying) by big players, while down days are signs of distribution(selling) by big market players. The Up Down volume ratio takes this assumption and turns...
Volume Buzz/Volume Run Rate as seen on TC2000 and MarketSmith respectively.

A relative strength overlay, similar to that of IBD shown on Marketsmith.

Feel free to change the comparison ETF to one of your choosing.
This is the original script to my other Relative Strength indicator (link below) It provides a graphical overlay of the Relative Strength, compared to the QLD, a Nasdaq x2 ETF.

If you want a value which you can use to...
