Calculation

Auto Filter — function for calculating filters automatically (reccomended if you are only starting to use this indicator). If this function is ON, Maximum Volume and Minimum Volume parameters will not work, as they are detected automatically.

The auto filter in the Big Trades indicator changes dynamically, but only at the moment of the first launch, it does not change online. Auto-filter may depend on the timeframe. The indicator takes the last few days and calculates aggregated orders. And the filter is selected in such a way that on average there will be about 10 readings of the indicator per day. And if you load the indicator in just one day, it will calculate the aggregated orders for the day and will generate about 10 signals on average. If you download a week, he will calculate these orders for the whole week (including the current day) and will also give an average of 10 readings per day.

The maximum number of days that the indicator can calculate is a week. Those, if the chart has 100 days, the indicator will calculate only the last week.
