This script tracks the net Bitfinex margin sizes from candle to candle (longs - shorts), and divide it by the total volume from the previous candle. This should give you a ratio of net margin trading volume over total volume on Bitfinex.
Note that assuming the delay is not severe, this ratio should never exceed 1 or -1 (since margin traded volume should strictly...
Volume substitute for those who prefer to use the XBT ticker. Renko on a small time scale is a good option, but lacks wicks.
Can be used as a non-overlay indicator by detaching. Differences are more visible on large time scales, or on Renko.
Possible future changes:
Make the columns more volatile
Change column color based on previous column's value
This is an edit to an existing script. Original credits to pigloo and Ivturner for the slight tweak.
What's been changed:
This version allows Bitfinex $BTC longs/shorts to be viewed on any chart. It can be helpful when trading alts to find out why price is fluctuating.
I've added a price tracker that will show you BFX's BTCUSD value if you have indicator...
A very simple indicator to show the change of longs between the previous period and the current period on bitfinex, this works for any margin pair on Bitfinex but can also be locked to BITFINEX:BTCUSD, works hand in hand with my "Longs Change" indicator

Blue Line shows the BCH dominance of a particular BTC price move.

This version is the oscillator script of a 2-in-1 overlay + oscillator depending on which plots are enabled.
Use with "Actualized BCH+BTC Price Persistence BITFINEX" - the overlay version of this script.

The higher the ratio, it means there are more longs. The lower the ratio, the more shorts are currently being opened,.
Displays BitFinex longs and shorts on your chart in the same was as if you add them by using TradingView's "compare" function - major advantage is that this works for all pairs that BitFinex supports without having to manually set up your chart each time.
This is the same as my previous BITFINEX Longs & Shorts script but with an update by @slylandro to work with other pairs on BFX

Lighter area = Longs - Shorts (good for spotting sentiment)
Small improvement upon the above script - all credit should really go to pigloo
Auto-detects ticker and automatically loads the long/shorts for it - so works on more than just BTC
Note - only works on BitFinex and only works for tickers which have long and short data...
Green area = Longs
Red area = Shorts
Lighter area = Longs - Shorts
The data only started recently which is why there is not much history, also I have marked a period of missing data between the vertical lines.
