    Anchored volume profile is a part of Volume by price system that helps to reveal the amount of volume (displayed from right to left) for a particular price range on the chart. The range for the volume is defined from the starting point to the last candle of the chart and is based on the highest and lowest prices of the entire period

    The Volume by price drawings can be used to identify current support and resistance levels and to estimate future support and resistance levels.

    The Anchored volume profile is drawn by placing one point. To add an Anchored volume profile to the chart, click its name or the icontrend_channel_iconon the Drawings Panel and specify a point on a candle or any place on the chart.
