/*
v1.1        cleaning the code
            add ShowOpenCloseArrow
            add VATPOPercent
v1.2        use 1 pip for pricing step and tpo calculating      
v1.3        add Volume Profile feature
v1.31       add DayStartHour, ShowPriceHistogram, ShowValueArea, ShowVAHVALLines            
v1.31.rev1  add Ticksize, VolAmplitudePercent
            bug fix : 
            - Profile High and Low misscalculated when high or low of the day 
              occured at first m30 candle.
            - Open and Close Arrow Location
            - profile missing when DayStartHour not exist on the chart 
              like Hour 0 not exist on some days on #YMH1 chart (fxpro);

Very good, I like that histogram can be false/true...VA is 1st standard deviation...so there is need for 2nd , 3rd and extremes(excesses)...Hopefully it will be in next revision. Thank you.

@kave
PS: One thing i notice that if the POC & VPC is align the POC overlay onto the VPC as shown here, (those 2 POC of 23rd & 24th). Since the 24th Feb qualifies as a VPC, is it possible let the VPC line to be overlayed on top instead??

One comment, for the volume based profile is it possible to reduce the amplitude of the profile so that it doesn't extend so far to the right?
