Trading the Currencies

Recommended Posts

Are there people trading the CME currencies (Euro or Yen) using Market Profile? If so, what time period do you use to generate the Market Profile using TPOs? I use 7:20am to 3:30pm EST because of the light trading during the overnight sessions. I'll use 24 hours to generate a volume profile though. Also, I would be interested to hear about people's success trading the currencies using Market Profile. Thanks.

I am not too sure about Forex but I know a few traders who use Market Profile in trading currency futures. Perhaps you can look into currency futures instead?


Do you think market profile works better for commodities?

For short term ( 0 < day < 10days). I use globex (24Hr) 10 min bars and plot volume profile.

For longer term I use 240min bars, also volume profile.


I have not experimented with "day session" in currencies, but if I were to do so, I would segment the 24Hr session into high volume ( day) and low volume. In general. high volume starts sometimes in Euro session and completes during US day session.
