Additionally, the indicator has three other modes (single strike only) that will display total strike volume for the day, open interest, and volume as a percentage of open interest (see the second image below). The total volume and open interest modes are designed for use on daily charts but will function on the intraday charts as shown below. To initialize the study, you need to enter your desired center strike, expiration date, and the strike spacing for the underlying. OV.png
