Data Type allows to choose from different sources of data:
- Buys – Will display only trades that occur at the ask or above
- Sells – Will display only trades that occur at the bid and below
- Delta – Will display the buys minus the sells that occurred at that price level.
- Total – This will display both buys and sells, this will be your regular volume profile.
Trading hours will let you set the session for the profile to display.
Filter Mode is a very useful and advanced setting. You can spot price levels that were traded by large lot traders, small trades and much more. Filter mode inherits the value from Filter Value. This setting allows you to apply several times of filter conditions:
- Equal – Display volume that is equal to the Filter Value. Useful if you are tracking a particular quantity of volume traded.
- Does Not Equal – Displays volume were the trades do not match the value of Filter Value. Useful if you do not want to see one lot trades, for example.
- Less Than – Filters the volume that is lower than the specified Filter Value. Useful to see the activity of small trades.
- Less Than or Equal– Expands the previous Filter Mode allowing you to include the value specified in the Filter Value.
- Greater Than – Display volumes that are above the Filter Value. This is a common setting among volume profile. Allows you to spot the large traded quantities and price levels that traded heavily.
- Greater Than or Equal – expands the previous Filter Mode, allowing you to include the value set on Filter Value option. Like the previous Filter Mode, this setting allows for an easy display of were large trade volume.

This will color the bars that account for 68.2% of the volume on the column. Although most traders use 68.2% or 70%. There is no reason why you could not customize this setting. You could easily have another volume column set to 95.4%, which is the second standard deviation value.
