    Hi Pete, Sorry to bug you, I just started watching this video, however I noticed that the Scan_VolProfile.txt not a .ts where I can open in file and import from the downloaded file. Am I missing anything? Kindly help! Thanks

    • Pete Hahn Post author

      This is one of our premium chart studies. The scan is available free of charge, which is the .txt file you mentioned. The chart study is not available free of charge.

        Gotcha Pete! Sorry, my bad. I should’ve finished the video first then asked you the question. I jumped the gun here … I’ll go ahead and contact you to see about adding the premium chart indicator. Thanks so much, the video was awesome.

      To date I have not received a request for this. So I am not sure if it is possible. But I can certainly check it out. What exactly would you expect to see in the watchlist column?

  • Collin

    Would have been great / really great if the chart/price action was projecting a short just before earnings announcement! ;7 ) note my wink…

    Hi there, is it possible to modify the VP scanner code to pick prices as they are crossing VAs? If yes, would you mind showing the new lines? Many thanks.

    • Pete Hahn Post author

      When you say, “crossing VA’s”. What exactly do you mean? I would guess that VA stood Value Area. Which is the entire profile. But that doesn’t make sense. So I guess you actually meant to say “crossing the VAH and VAL levels”? If that is the case, simply adjust the user inputs until the trigger range has vanished. You probably need to see this in a screenshot so post in the Q&A forum if you still have questions.

      • Gus

        Pete, thank you for your prompt reply and apologies for the lack of clarification. Yes, you guessed it spot on that I meant VAH and VAL. I’ve tried adjusting the inputs to fine tune it to no avail, so I have posted a query in the Q&A section. Thank you in advance.
