Attributable Volume

A volume indicator which calculates "Attributable Volume”, the portion of volume which contributed to the direction in which the candle moved.

Attributable Volume is calculated as: Total volume excluding the "counter wick" volume .
Where for a green (up) candle, the "counter wick" volume is the top wick volume .

In theory, Attributable Volume should better represent the effort of directional thrust of each candle.

By default, this indicator displays “Attributable RVOL”, but can be set to:

Note: RVOL = Relative Volume , the current volume divided by the Volume moving average. RVOL can be used to identify major moves, and potential starts/ends to trends.

This is a fantastic idea. Thank you for sharing!
Fun modification : instead of using a static threshold, maybe plot a 2 and 4 deviation Bollinger band and see which volume candles shoot past them.
