The AT TimeInBar indicator is useful for non-time based charts, like Renko, Tick, Volume, Range Bar and the like.
These charts do not create a new bar every fixed amount of time, but every number of points, ticks, volume traded and therefore every bar can (and will) take a different time to form.

In this sort of charts it can be helpful to see how fast or slow bars are formed.
The TimeInBar indicator shows you that as a histogram, as well as a moving average of the bar times.

You can invert the time histogram so fast bars will produce higher values.
A bar in the indicator is colored red or green – based on bullish or bearish price bar – if the time is above or below the average.
