Indicator: Weis Wave Volume [LazyBear]

This indicator takes market volume and organizes it into wave charts, clearly highlighting inflection points and regions of supply/demand.

Try tuning this for your instrument (Forex not supported) by adjusting the "Trend Detection Length". This "clubs together" minor waves. If you like an oscillator-kind-of display, enable "ShowDistributionBelowZero" option.

Note: This indicator is a port of a clone of WeisVolumePlugin available for another platform. I don't know how close this is to the original Weis, if any has access to it, do let me know how this compares. Thanks.
