  • Red circles show Sell trades.
  • Blue circles show Buy trades.
  • Green is used when the direction is undefined. If an exchange does not provide trading direction data, this characteristic is determined based on the deal price as compared to Bid and Ask. A Buy transaction is executed at Ask or a higher price and a Sell transaction is executed at Bid or a lower price. If the transaction price is between Ask and Bid, the direction is considered to be undefined.

The circle size depends on the deal volume. The volumes are additionally shown as a histogram below the tick chart.
