The average volume indicator displays a simple moving average of volume.

Average Volume Parameters

Period - the number of bars in the time period (default 50)

Average Volume Calculation

The calculation for each bar is as follows:

Sum ( Volume[Period bars ago thru current bar] ) / Period

In other words, if you are calculating a 50 day moving average over a hundred bars:

  • the average for bar 50 is the sum of bars 1 thru 50 divided by 50
  • and the average for bar 100 is the sum of bars 51 thru 100 divided by 50.
