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,

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

    • Amid the bearish charge witnessed in Bitcoin (BTC) on Monday, El Salvador President Nayib Bukele revealed that the country bought the dip. El Salvador’s Bitcoin Law went into effect on September 7, making it the first sovereign nation to adopt the flagship cryptocurrency as legal tender. President Bukele announced via Twitter that his government acquired an additional 150 BTC with the dip. He tweeted that: BTC traded around $45,000 when Bukele made the announcement yesterday. However, the cryptocurrency has since dropped to the lower-$40,000 area, according to data from TradingView. Meanwhile, ATM tracking website Coinatmradar.com recently revealed that the North American nation now has 205 crypto ATM locations, the third-largest by a country (behind the US and Canada). The launch of the Chivo wallet, the country’s official crypto wallet, started with a rocky start. However, Bukele has assured that the Chivo app now operates in optimal capacity. Reports show that the full adoption of the Chivo app could cost remittance providers like Moneygram and Western Union over $400 million per annum. Last Friday, Bukele tweeted that about 1.1 million Salvadorans now use the Chivo wallet, adding that: “we haven’t enabled 65% of phone models yet.” Key Bitcoin Levels to Watch — September 21 BTC has fallen to a new monthly low of $40,140 following the industry-wide crash. The benchmark cryptocurrency now struggles to pick itself up and back to recent highs. Already, Bitcoin is on track to post a red monthly candle for September as it always has since it went mainstream. BTCUSD – 4-Hour Chart That said, we expect a steady rebound above the $44,000 mark and higher over the coming hours. Nonetheless, we could see a retest of the $41,000 mark if bulls fail to reclaim the $44,000 level soon. Meanwhile, our resistance levels are at $44,000, $44,400, and $45,000, and our key support levels are at $43,000, $42,000, and $41,000.

    • Ethereum price breaks moving averages resumes downward Ether targets the low of $2,082 Key Highlights Ethereum ETH) Current Statistics The current price: $2,908.05 Market Capitalization: $341,770,388,786 Trading Volume: $28,141,190,537 Major supply zones: $3,000, $3,500, $4,000 Major demand zones: $2,500, $2,000, $1,500 Ethereum (ETH) Price Analysis September 22, 2021 Ethereum’s (ETH) price has fallen below the moving averages suggesting a further downward movement of the crypto. The bears have also broken below the previous low at $3,026 to another low of $2,656. As the biggest altcoin falls below the previous low, further downsides are likely. Meanwhile, on September 7 downtrend; a retraced candle body tested the 50 % Fibonacci retracement level. The retracement indicates that Ether will fall to level 2.0 Fibonacci extension or level $2,082.71. ETH/USD – Daily Chart ETH Technical Indicators Reading The crypto’s price is now below the moving averages which suggest that Ether is in the bearish trend zone. The altcoin is capable of falling in the bearish trend zone. Ether is at level 40 of the Relative Strength index period 14. It indicates that the altcoin is in the downtrend zone and below the centerline 50. The coin is above the 20% range of the daily stochastic. It indicates that the market is in the bullish trend zone. Conclusion Ethereum is likely to further decline as price breaks below the previous low at level $3,026. Nevertheless, the Fibonacci tool has further indicated a downward move to level 2.0 Fibonacci extension. ETH/USD – 4 Hour Chart   Source: https://learn2.trade

GS talk of $85+ if there is a cold winter Gold dropped to $1760 but has recovered to $1764. Overnight – FED Highlights – We now have 9 forecasts of a 2022 rate hike instead of 7, with 9 instead of 11 now expecting no change. From the dots, it’s clear that the large majority of policymakers want to start raising rates in late-2022 & get back to near-normal by 2024. GDP, saw trimmings for the Fed’s 2021 central tendency to 5.8%-6.0% from 6.8%-7.3%, 2021 headline and core PCE chain price central tendency boosts to 4.0%-4.3% and 3.6%-3.8% respectively. 2021 jobless rate central tendency boosts to 4.6%-4.8%. POWELL – “substantial further progress” has been met for inflation, but there is more uncertainty surrounding the maximum employment goal. Powell noted a split among the FOMC whether employment has improved satisfactorily. He thinks it has “all but been met”. Tapering “could end around the middle of next year.”AUD PMI’s stronger than expected but remain very weak (Services only 44.9).European Open – The December 10-year Bund future is down 21 ticks, the 30-year future meanwhile has moved higher with Treasury futures. DAX & FTSE 100 futures are up 0.5% with risk appetite strengthen post-Fed and amid easing concern on Evergrande, at least for now.

BoE Preview: Expected to keep policy settings on hold, but minutes will be watched carefully especially with 2 new MPC members – Catherine Mann (Centrist) & Huw Pill (Hawkish). The central bank already signaled a more hawkish outlook on rates at the previous meeting, which to a certain extent pre-empted the jump in inflation and tightness in labour markets that were the key message of last week’s economic reports. However, retail sales numbers were pretty dismal & consumers are facing higher taxes as well as a phased out wage support, with the phasing out of the furlough scheme a key factor for the BoE’s policy decision going forward. On top of this the country is facing an energy crisis that is having unexpected knock on effects also for the food sector. The central scenario at the moment is for the labour market to remain tight & wage growth strong, as companies are increasingly forced to up wage offers to attract staff. Against that background, the first rate hike could come in H1 2022, depending on virus developments & how the energy market gets through the winter.Today – SNB, Norges Bank (rate hike likley), BoE, CBRT & SARB rate decisions, Eurozone, UK & US flash PMIs, US Weekly Claims, Canadian Retail Sales, ECB’s Elderson.Biggest Mover @ (06:30 GMT) CADJPY (+0.38%) 3 days in row!

    • I'm gonna pull a crazyCzarina and reply to a long dead post ... One sure thing about trading forums - The great questions never get an answer.  Ask  even the greatest posters a great question... silence, no nothin’, not even crickets.          First a few comments about Elliott Wave Wave Theory is a ‘science’ of socionomics.  Socionomics is about how societal ideas ‘ideally’ or typically unfold -  wave 1 is the early adapters, wave 3 is broad collective acceptance, wave 5 is continuing valuation narratives but with narrowing collective assessment of actual value... with all kinds of ‘ideal’ sub patterns... Socionomics starts with a simple observation: For lots of issues, how people FEEL influences how they will BEHAVE.  (Equally true = How people BEHAVE influences how they will FEEL... but that’s for another topic) Anyways... Elliott Wave theory is an attempt to apply socionomics  to trading   - and  yes analyst75 “theory” is the key word.  Imo, it’s a jump too far.   First, price is not a good metric for socionomics.... especially across decades when currencies are being viciously  'corrupted'.   And practically, socionomics does not transfer over to trading nearly to the degree Ellioticians would like.   It simply does not deliver enough of those ‘ideal’ sub patterns because  crowds of traders’ behaviors and ‘feelings’ about pricing are not sufficient equivalents of broader collective behaviors / socionomic waves... ESPECIALLY as time frames shorten... (ie waves may appear to ‘fractal’ down ... but they really don’t.)   If you’re going to use EW to trade, probably the most important point you can acknowledge is that 5 wave patterns are EXCEPTIONS to normal trading crowd behavior ie  the best thing a 5 wave pattern indicates is that corrective patterns will soon resume.  I’ve described it differently in other posts*  ... but basically, at any given point in time it is possible to reasonably project that ANY freakin wave ‘count’ / pattern will enfold.   It is just as reasonable to project that a nice 5 wave completion will go on to a nice 7 or 11 or 17 or whatever wave count as it is to project that the market will now have a ‘trend’ change.  At the end of any nice 3 wave corrective pattern, either projecting a huge 5 wave pattern unfolding in the other direction or projecting a long flat congestive pattern or another 3 wave correction pattern... or... all are equally reasonable.  Or, a pretty wave 1, 2, and 3 doesn’t not mean a pretty wave 5 will unfold.  Ie it’s just as reasonable to count it over and project that the next sequence will be corrective or a 5 wave impulsive move in the opposite direction. etc etc       ... to get back to the unanswered question - So what do you propose as an alternate? Long ago I read Hurst.  In a short section of his book he mentioned it.  It didn’t sink in.  Then one day it really hit me.  There is no Elliott wave sequence or any other ‘technical’ price pattern that cannot be better explained via ‘summation of cycles’ ...   * fun example can be seen by searching for 'trading chaos by bill williams' thread on t2w ... TL is so special we don't even allow links to other trading forums? ... other snarky EW comments at http://www.traderslaboratory.com/forums/topic/7555-do-you-use-the-elliott-wave-to-trade/page/2/?tab=comments#comment-146022
