Volume Zones Multi-Timeframe Overlay

At its core, this indicator is a variation of my other indicator, Welkin Advanced Volume Overlay (for VSA )

This version is based on the power of multi-timeframe analysis. The basic functionality is simple: Plot lines from the high and low of candles formed during periods of high volume and fill the space between them. The volume levels for deciding what counts as "high volume" are based on standard deviations of the volume's SMA , and the higher the volume , the brighter the zone. i.e., a volume zone set by a volume level that is 4 standard deviations higher than average will be more "filled in" and less transparent than a volume zone from a 2 standard deviation candle.

These zones tend to act as areas of congestion, and the "ceilings" and "floors" of the zones as support and resistance . Overlapping zones tend to indicate strength and are likely to require more effort to get through. The more timeframes that agree with each other, the stronger the zone, ceiling, or floor.

By default, these zones are drawn based on the chart's timeframe and 1 timeframe higher, automatically set based on some "standard" values:
1m -> 5m
5m -> 15m
10m -> 30m
15m -> 60m
30m -> 60m
60m -> 1d
1d -> 1w

Finally, both the base timeframe and the higher timeframe are customizable; this is intended to make it easy to "double" up copies of the indicator to fit even more timeframes on the chart, creating a sort of heatmap for volume price analysis.

An example of three copies of the indicator, showing volume zones from 6 different timeframes.
Release Notes: Updated comments to conform with house rules.
Release Notes:
  • Added previous zone plotting for the base timeframe.
  • Reordered drawing to prioritize base timeframe (draw it on top).
  • Added auto settings for 2m/3m -> 5m timeframes.
Release Notes: Split up visibility settings for each volume level (lines and fills) and improved settings panel layout some.
Release Notes:
  • Updated to PineScript v5
  • Set minimum fill level to 0 from 10.
Release Notes:
  • Changed the default color for higher timeframe volume zones to improve readability.
  • Disabled Above Average volume zones by default.
  • Updated settings input panel layout.
  • Changed the "Above Average" volume level threshold calculation (from 1 standard deviation above average to just above average)
  • Added toggles for each individual volume level threshold.
