    How can I make my volume green for up bars and red for down?
    In any case you will have to create a custom indicator for this.

    When comparing volume data use:



    Or when comparing price data (to color the volume) use:



    To create the indicator, click on tools, indicator builder, then click on new. Name your indicator and paste one or the other formula.

    And click on OK. You should now have a new indicator in you quick list.

    Apply the indicator on your chart, you should see 2 red lines, right click on the first one and select properties. Change the color to green and style histogram, and then click on ok.

    Right click on the second red line, go to properties and change the style to histogram.

    So that you do not have to do this every time I would recommend saving this as a template, see your default template.
