Recommended Posts

I have downloaded the marketprofile.eld indicator that some of you have posted here. It does not seem to have changed my chart. Can someone give some help here?

 

Is it something that only updates when the market is open? If so, that is the problem because it is the weekend.

 

If someone could post a screen shot or some simple instructions, I would be most appreciative.

 

Thanks

Welcome to the forum. Please link the URL to the MP indicator you are using from this forum; not sure which one you are referring to.

If you are using the TPO_Pro5 from the TS forum, try a 15 min chart with about 20 trading days of data (see attached for @ES) and use compress setting of 4 so that the letters are not all squeezed together (also try a fix courier font on TS chart). The indicator does not depend on bid/ask or other transient data.

If you using the MP indicator by Antonio (Ant), that is code protected and has expired a while ago (perhaps one year) and no longer display anything on your chart.

There is no support on any of these indicators, it is just a matter of trial and error.

 

Here are some notes from the TS forum on the TPO_Pro5 indicator

{ Regular Session by using @ER2.D you should eliminate the off-hour MP's. Also, you have to use a

non-proportional font like Courier to have the letter spacings show up properly, or a letter "I" takes

up less horizontal space than a letter "M" and throws-off the histogram. You can do this by right-clicking

on some of the letters, "No" to format Analysis technique. Then choose a fixed-width font and check Default.

Then reload the chart with Ctrl-R. Unfortunately, ALL text on ALL your charts will now use the fix-space font

when the charts reload - TS can't have some one way, and others another way...

 

I went 10 days back on data, as little as 5 will work. Try changing the Compression and Length inputs to 3,

or a lower number than the default depending on you screen resolution .

 

According to Robls99 in another post:

The current function for Session time have been changed to:

SessionStartTime(SessionType, SessionNum)

SessionEndTime(SessionType, SessionNum)

where: SessionType is a numeric value: 0 = Auto Detect, 1 = Regular Session

Session Num specifies the specific session that should be returned.

See the TradeStation User Guide (Help tab) for further info.

Can we change the code to a way that we can auto detect session? I tried changing the input to

SessionStartTime(0, 1) and still doesnt work. What can i do?

 

you can look here . For 07/26/07 you see the dates

http://www.charthub.com/images/2007/07/27/ym_rth_mp

By definition, the POC is the longest line of TPO's closest to the center of the range.

 

The value area is where "70% of or thye day's business is conducted." (per Dalton's Mind over Markets).

The value area is approximately 1 standard deviation of the total price movement. Some use a volume value

area, TPO value area or both. The POC or point of control is the price where most of the TPOs exist.

Initiating trades at the POC may be less likely to succeed. You often find random movement at the POC

on a normal day type. At the POC, price is at the middle of the of the "bell curve" and could go in

either direction.

 

ok figured it out. my value area percentage was wrong. When i made it 70% it is fine now

OK. After reading you post and others, I can not get my market profile to match anyones numbers.

 

I have loaded the symbol @ES 15m regular session. It seems that the MP wants to break up the day into 2 parts. Yours does not seem to be that way. Also when I check the numbers against a couple of sources, the numbers are not correct.

 

Here is what mine looks like.

 

Thanks,

Thrunner,Can you please PM or post a link to the .eld file ?thanks!
Hi Mr. Paul, Various members have posted links to eld lately to a Market Profile indicator. I believe they are all based on the TS forum MP indicator TPO_Pro5b because they all look about the same and that is the one I showed above and the one BigEd is trying out. Here is the other recent link I believe by gnassh : http://www.traderslaboratory.com/forums/f6/mp-trading-with-market-profile-3135.html#post27703

 

I personally don't use MP, but I keep it around just to see what other traders may be looking at and acting upon.

 

BigEd, you can try a @ES.D chart instead to avoid the after session activation of the MP indicator. I am not awared of too many MP traders using it for trading outside of RTH (regular trading hr) You can also check your numbers here:

http://www.mypivots.com/forum/topic.asp?whichpage=0.7&TOPIC_ID=2531⫀ They are free and usually accurate. If your numbers come within a few ticks of what they got, I think that is pretty accurate for MP, considering not everybody is using the same data feed.

Here is the file that I got working. It is from TS fourums. It seems to be the one that Thrunner is talking about. If anyone has an updated one, I would also be interested.

 

 

BigEd, I got it working on the ESZ08.D contract. However, have been trying to get it to work on the ESZ08 contract but do not know how to do it? Do you have an idea?

 

Basically, I need it to produce the market profile for the 24 hour period and not just the pit session. :confused:

Hi,

 

thx for posting this indicator.

I am wondering if there is a version out, that shows the value area only.

Looks like that whole market profile eld needs lot of resources.

 

Thx,

 

Goody

I use the TPO_PRO5b and it works just fine. I use mine on a 30 minute chart and I am pretty sure you can only use it with symbol @ES.D . I suppose u could type out the month and year but its not necessary. The important issue is, it need to be set on market hours only.

 

Does anyone know of a ELD for TS that shows the continuous plotting of the VL, VH and POC with just the horizantal lines and no letters?

Hi Brad

I used the TPO Pro5. ob eld . The one I used is for TS 8.3 or 8.4 and will not work on the TS 2000i (I think thats the name). Also, the version I use will only work on a 30 minute chart (not sure why). If you look on the TS forum it is there and has been for some time. Hope that helps.

The error message you are getting might be related to the RANGE of the security you are plotting...it might be hard coded .. also try it on daily REGULAR session, not globex. See if it works for you.

Does anyone know how to get this indicator to work for FOREX?

 

It does a great job with emini futures, but I get an error message if I try to use it for spot currencies. Anyone has any clue on what changes should be made to the ELD?

 

Thanks in advance for anyone who can help.

Your most likely getting an array bound error ... if so

Change the compress input in this manor, increas that input by 1 until the profile is ploted.

 

note: by doing that your telling the indicator to combine X ticks as one tick.

where x = the number of the compress input your using.

 

Or

your using TS costum sessions charts... if so the code as is will not work with costum sessions charts.

 

 

Take care

    • Date : 12th December 2019. Lagarde prepares ECB debut – 12th December 2019.   Policy unchanged Projections unlikely to change much Clues about review sought Style in focus Presiding over her first presser of the European Central Bank today, Lagarde is expected to confirm once again the current policy setting, giving time to ECB to focus on the planned review of its overall policy framework.Final Eurozone GDP and PMI readings broadly supported this neutral picture, while the confidence that a deep recession can be avoided is strengthening (Figure 1) despite the fact that German manufacturing and production numbers still look weak. The exports and the overall trade are actually holding up much better than expected, which together with still strong labour markets is underpinning hopes the net exports and consumption will continue to support growth not just in Germany.Figure 1 : December German ZEW investor confidence outcome, end the year firmly in positive territory at the highest level since February 2018.As there is nothing in the data really to challenge the ECB’s overall policy stance, the focus firstly turns into the tone and presentation style that President Lagarde will have. The “risk” is that the presser will be equally uneventful as her testimony before the European Parliament. Lagarde’s team building exercise seems to have worked and at least in public there has been a pretty consistent message since she took over, which is very likely to be confirmed today. Additionally it will be interesting to see whether she will back fully Draghi’s package.Citi Bank: All key interest rates will likely be left unchanged, and the forward guidance reaffirmed. The main interest at this meeting will be the new Eurosystem staff projections, extended to 2022, to gauge whether the September package will be sufficient to bring inflation back into line with the ECB’s target over the forecast horizon. If not, investors’ attention will quickly turn to the ECB’s toolbox and what instruments the Governing Council would be willing to use and when, in order to defend its credibility in the absence of large fiscal support. The upcoming strategic review of monetary policy will also likely be the focus of many questions.Hence as reported by Citi, other than Lagarde’s style, ECB projections could also monopolize the attention. Even though, the ECB remains ready to act again and tweak all its measures if necessary, it has already done a lot and now needs to keep an eye on the side effects of the very expansionary monetary policy, while politicians need to do their bit to support the economy.The central bank won’t be reducing the degree of stimulus any time soon with many analysts supporting that this will continue until mid-2020 unless there is a major change in circumstance.Central bankers will be conducting a comprehensive review of the policy framework, however, with a special focus on the inflation target. A more symmetric definition, which stresses that the ECB can see through lengthy inflation overshoots as well as periods of too low headline rates is likely to come in the first quarter of next year. The inclusion of owner-occupied housing costs into the HICP number also remains a challenge especially as house prices are rising rapidly in some centres, also thanks to the low interest rate environment.Bund yields have nudged higher over the past week, but the German 10-year so far failed to move lastingly above -0.3%. Uncertainty on trade and Brexit are keeping a lid on yields, although there is the risk that if things go the way markets want and a phase one trade deal is confirmed and in the UK PM Johnson gets his majority, there could be a sharp rise in yields, if markets price out further easing and start to look ahead to central banks removing some of the stimulus.However this is far away for now, while central bankers are not looking eager to add further easing.Always trade with strict risk management.

    • USDJPY Remains Biased To The Downside   USDJPY faces further price weakness despite its price hesitation on Tuesday. On the upside, resistance comes in at 109.00 level. Above this level will turn attention to the 109.50 level. Further out, we expect a possible move towards the 110.00 level on a break of that area, A cut through here will open the door for more gain towards the 110.50. On the downside, support lies at the 108.00 level where a break will target the 107.50 level. Below that level will turn focus to the 107.00 level and then lower towards the 106.50 level. On the whole, USDJPY faces further downside threats.        
    • Sterling Advances Barely Hours To UK Elections As Latest Poll Predicts Conservatives Win In just two days from now, a major event that will set the trend for the currency market for the year 2020, the UK elections will be held. In the face of a Brexit extension, UK prime minister had pushed for an earlier election in the hopes of having a majority conservatives win in the parliament which will make the Brexit deal pass through easily. As the clock ticks, with barely less than 48 hours to this epochal event, the newest poll by Survation conducted for ITV’s good morning Britain show predicts a Boris Johnson win by 14 pts. ahead of Jeremy Corbyn‘s Labour party. The Brexit deal seemed to give the conservatives an edge as it accounted for 32% of the vote decision while NHS gave Labour party a slight edge. On the overall, a majority vote of 42% was predicted for the conservatives while Labour had 28%. Market Reaction as the Clock Ticks Optimism looms in the market as the prediction of a conservatives win will ease Britain’s exit from Europe by January 31 deadline. The EUR/GBP pair continued to fall till the early hours of today breaking the 0.8411 trend line targeting the 0.8149 resistance level. GBP/USD pair rebounded to consolidate briefly targeting 1.3381 resistance levels. Technical analysis within a 4-hour MACD shows that both pairs may likely touch down. CAD edged slightly higher advanced by USMCA news but yet to consolidate gains. The USD against a basket of five major currencies held steady awaiting FOMC’s minutes due out tomorrow. Against a basket of currencies, NZD’s dominance is the highest. Sterling also gained momentum firmed up by approaching UK elections. The safe-haven, the Japanese yen, and Swiss franc remain pressured as major events that will shape the market for 2020 are been anticipated. On the Asia side, significant market activity wasn’t recorded as most currency pairs held steady within a day’s range. In the Asian stock market, not so much activity was recorded being weakened by recently released Chinese PMI numbers. Most of the indexes closed a little lower while US stocks rose swiftly after Friday’s release of US non-farm payroll reports. The outcome of the December 15 deadline set by the US for the signing of a preliminary trade pact will determine the week’s direction and even further into the year 2020. Also due out later in the week is UK GDP figures and ZEW released out of Germany.
    • Date : 11th December 2019. FOMC Preview – 11th December 2019. FOMC Preview No policy changes or surprises are expected with today’s announcement (19:00 GMT) and Chair Powell’s press conference 30 minutes later. It will be interesting to see if, as expected, the voting is unanimous this time round. The FOMC members have expressed significant differences of opinion during 2019 as three rate cuts were implemented.  The apparent paradox of low unemployment and low inflation, the new “norm”. The two-digit unemployment rate (U-3) in November edged down to 3.53% from 3.56% in October, and a 3.52% cycle-low in September, all below the 3.58% prior cycle-low in April and a 4.00% rate at the beginning of the year. Current readings remain much lower than the 4.2% long-run unemployment rate projection noted in the September SEP, it is expected that this estimate will be trimmed today. Headline CPI rose 0.4% in October while the core index rose by 0.2%, for respective y/y gains of 1.8% and 2.3%, versus September figures of 1.7% and 2.4%. Today the November headline is expected to fall again to 0.2% and the core remains flat at 0.2% too. The Fed’s favoured inflation gauge, the PCE chain price measure, rose 1.3% y/y in October and expectations are for an uptick to 1.4% in November. The core PCE chain price measure rose 1.6% y/y in November, versus 1.7% in September, and expectations are for the pace to hold at 1.6% in November. The FOMC’s latest median estimates for 2019 inflation are 1.5% for the headline and 1.8% for the core. Hence, the focus will be on the Fed’s new quarterly forecasts, with expectations raised and likely to be mostly bullish results with a bump up in the median growth projection and a drop in the median dot to reflect a steady stance through 2020. However, the individual dots are likely to show both, forecasts for cuts and hikes. Chair Powell is expected to reiterate the US economy and policy are in a “good place,” (a phrase he has used a number of times lately) and could sound a little more upbeat after the strong jobs report. But, he will continue to warn of downside risks. The FOMC isn’t likely to announce any new measures on reserve management operations (QE?) or a repo facility. All steady into 2020 and beyond. USDIndex remains biased to the down side but has support around 97.40 and the 200-day moving average. A breach of this key support zone brings in 97.00 and the October low of 96.85. A break over 97.80 (the confluence of the 20 and 50-day moving averages) and 98.00 would be required before a re-test of the recent high at 98.50 could be considered.
