Adding # of Trades to Chart / Scanner

Hi Peter, really great content! Loving everything I’ve came across so far.

One thing I cannot locate is an scanner column / chart study that indicates # of trades. I see many on volume, but nothing that can actually display “1000 trades” or a tick of that. The closest I’ve came across to this info for TOS is the “TimeBasedTrades” study that Josiah developed.

Would love any insight! Thanks!

Hello Peter and thank you also for the email response as well. This is something I also would like to get going. My limitations, is that I only have 1-2 hours per day, and that is early am’s on weekends to be able to spend any time here…and thank you for this site again.

Aparently if i edit my comment, it destroys the format of the comment, so I deleted the others and consolidating here, with the code for future people to reference

What I’m trying to do:
Chart Study 1
1) On the charts, plot out the # of trades per tick (1m:1day) – DONE
2) On the charts, sum the total volume for the day (including premarket) to display it – DONE

Chart Study 2)
1) Utilizing the same info as above, I want to be able to reference the same time/tick mark & compute an average of the past X days (10?). Since they are ticks, I was very lost on how to locate the specific tick mark for that time (say 9:45 am)

Scan:
Display the Total # of Trades for the Day – DONE

Code for Total Trades Today + Current Trade Bar
declare lower;
declare zerobase;
def CurTickTrades = Fundamental(FundamentalType.TICK_COUNT);
def newDay = GetDay() GetDay()[1];
rec todaysTrades = if newDay then CurTickTrades else todaysTrades[1] + CurTickTrades;
AddLabel(ShowCurrentBar, “Current Trades: ” + CurTradeVolume, color.orange);
AddLabel(ShowCurrentBar, “Current Trades: ” + CurTickTrades, color.orange);

Code for Scan Column – # of Trades Today:
declare lower;
declare zerobase;
def CurTickTrades = Fundamental(FundamentalType.TICK_COUNT);
def newDay = GetDay() GetDay()[1];
rec todaysTrades = if newDay then CurTickTrades else todaysTrades[1] + CurTickTrades;
plot totaltrades = todaysTrades;

——————————————-
What’s missing from the above:
• A new volume bar study that grabs the average of the past 10x days and compares it to the current bar
– How would I be able to grab a ticket at a specific time, so I can compute that. Say 9:45 from 1 day ago, and from 2 days ago, etc

Thanks again!!

What you have requested here goes lightyears beyond the scope or level of complexity for solutions we provide at no charge here in the Q&A forum.

No worries, all that’s missing that I need to figure out is how to locate a tick at a specific bar/time “X” days ago. Once I get it working I’ll post the code here to share with others seeking the same in the future.
