Hopefully that appears sensible ; just put up as many days of info as you need averaged. ( In fact, these studies are plotting average volume by bar.
But if you plot them on a time-based chart, say 5-min, then you’re seeing average volume by 5-min period of time. Due to this, if you put it on a tick chart, the time linkage is gone.
