The OandaX Ratio History indicator is designed to display historical data on the ratio of sellers and buyers. To constantly update the data, it is necessary that the OandaX Download Manager Expert Advisor works in the terminal. To display the already downloaded data, the presence of a working Expert Advisor is not necessary.
The ratio of sellers to buyers is the percentage of the number of traders who have a short net position (sellers) and a long net position (buyers).
The history is available for 16 instruments: AUDJPY, AUDUSD, EURAUD, EURCHF, EURGBP, EURJPY, EURUSD, GBPCHF, GBPJPY, GBPUSD, NZDUSD, USDCAD, USDCHF, USDJPY, XAUUSD, XAGUSD. The minimum step of historical data is 20 minutes, but depending on the depth of the history, the step can increase to 1 day, and there may also be unexpected omissions.
