Barros Swing Average Volumes
The Barros Swing Average Volumes tool takes the bars from one point of a Barros Swing to the next Point of a Barros Swing and displays the average volume value. This can be done using the Initial, Mid or Final Swing.
To add the tool to your chart, select the tool from the Barros tool group, and left-click on the chart to add the tool. Optuma will then draw the tool in a window below the chart using the default settings.
