In trading jargon, VPVR means volume profile visible range.
VPVR is a charting device used in volume trading. Volume trading is a popular technique in cryptocurrency trading.
What is VPVR
VPVR stands for volume profile visible range.
VPVR plots a histogram over one side of the chart that reveals the price levels with most traded volume in your currently visible range of the market.
Identifying the areas where high volume of trading happened brings you close to identifying areas of supply and demand.
