Average Time Per Bar 5 *
Modified on Dec 23, 2009...fixed a few bugs...

I use range and volume bars. Many times it takes an inordinate amount of time to build a bar but it isn't obvious unless you do some basic math to find out. So, I created this indicator that works on any chart that is not time based. Really if you think about it you don't need this indicator on a time based chart.

It has two parameters. One is used to declare the number of bars you want to use to calculate the average time per bar and is called "Period". The second parameter is called "MaxLevel" which is used to set the level that you consider to be the acceptable level. For example, I base everything on 5 minutes so my "MaxLevel" is set to 5. So, if the average time per bar plot is below the "MaxLevel" line, I consider the market to be moving in an acceptable manner. Anything over the "MaxLevel" line is considered too slow for trading.

That about covers it. Pretty simple stuff.
Good luck and I hope you find it useful. In fact, I'm curious if anyone actually finds it to be useful. Please let me know.
