Cluster presets

Cluster presets are chart display modes. A preset determines the type of cluster on the chart. The TigerTrade terminal has approximately 30 presets representing clusters, which are based on Volume, Delta, Bid x Ask, Open, and Trades data. 

The list of cluster presets can be accessed in one of two ways:

  • Through the top main toolbar by clicking on the icon 

  • Through the Cluster tab in the chart parameters.

Preset

Name

Description

Volume

The cells of the clusters show the traded volume for the given period at each specific price.

Volume Profile

The cells with the largest traded volume will have the largest horizontal length and will have the brightest color, making them the most noticeable relative to other cells. The maximum volume will be additionally highlighted with a frame, which is most noticeable in the contracted version.

Volume Histogram

The same preset as the Volume Profile, only without the gradient in the cells. All cells have the same color and differ only in size.

Delta Colored Volume

In the clusters, numbers indicate the volumes of traded contracts, while the background of the cluster cell is colored by delta. It is thus clear that with green shades there are more purchases than sales, and with red shades there are more sales than purchases.

Delta Colored Volume Profile

The same Volume Profile, only the cluster cells are colored by delta.
