Volume Distribution & Activity Cells + Buy / Sell Pressure
The addition of the Buy / Sell Pressure overlay to the Volume Distribution & Activity Cells incorporates the Buy / Sell Ratio at each defined price level.

There are three main functions of the LogikBarProfiler. The HUD allows you to analyze all three at the same time, with the addition of on-the- fly hot key control to quickly switch between primary and ancillary display. This allows the user to present what he believes to be the most useful for his trading method as the primary view, while maintaining the other visual data features at the same time. Users can toggle between a distribution breakdown view, and a total percentage of up ticks and down ticks view, using ‘CTRL-SPACE’
The Point of Control hash mark begin shows the actual price inside of a consolidation range that market makers are accumulating or distributing their positions.
