Hi,

Its Alex from India, my first thread... had a brief stint somewhere..will be posting here mostly ..this is the thread for market profilers who trade in indian stocks ..will be posting my charts often here and will write up my method of using option open interest and VIX to use 4th dimension to get more pure market generated information.

Thanks and regards

Alex

Hi soul trader, India does allow its citizens to trade foreign markets, there ant such regulations, in fact few brokers just started its services recently with facility of trades in any world market you want.

Hi,

didnt able to post last night, got bz with few things so pardon me ..

To understand the market perfectly yesterday's Market Profile is very important, especially if you are a day trader, it gives a referral point..here is the list of to do list to prepare for next day market open, as said in first post there are no shortcuts to understand the principal -how market behaves -in contextualize way.

 

1>Review yesterday’s profile for clues as to what to expect today. Make

a note of possible trades, based on varying developments.

 

2> Review the overnight markets for any unusual price movement or

early indications for the day.

 

3> Compare the expected opening to the previous day. Is it within or outside

the previous day’s range? Value area? To the upside or downside?

 

4> Relative to the expected opening, identify three references points,

both above and below the expected opening. These could be the

previous day’s high and low, weekly high or low, the top and bottom

of the previous day’s value area, or the high or low of a recent trading

range. (There is no set answer—you should be guided by your past observations

of where price slowed or accelerated, as well as past areas

of heavy or light volume.)

 

5> Note what kind of opening is occurring, as well as what you’d want to

see in order to quickly judge the resulting directional confidence.

 

6> Note whether or not there is clear attempted direction, and whether

that activity is supported by volume.

 

7> Does the market appear to be within balance or out of balance?

 

8> Visualize the remainder of the day. Will it look elongated, squat, fairly

normal like a bell-shaped curve, and the like. Note any unusual shapes

or patterns that may suggest something unexpected is happening.

 

9> Estimate how much effort is being expended to move price directionally,

and note what that suggests about the inventory conditions of

your competitors—too long, too short, above water, below water, etc.

 

10> If there is a major news announcement scheduled, be aware that there

could be unexpected volatility. Let the market provide short-term interpretation

of resulting activity by observing developing structure.

 

Unless the day-timeframe structure is extremely strong and unlikely

to be reversed by such an announcement, we recommend that day

traders be flat in front of significant numbers.

value area ( weekly, in green and blue ) shifted downwards,..now at virgin territory which signifies a bearish territory. longer time frames which were active at 2775 zone now moved down at 2656, open interest put call ratio ( use as additional tool for volume information ) down to 1.59

Today Nifty Future ( NF) open down, trading within previous day's price range, but value area shifted downwards..at the moment profile looks 'balanced ' , if failed to close within previous value area ten signifies further weakness with weekly profile skewed towards elongated one.

Last hour sell of from point of control with heavy volume along with shading in open interest in put option, all signifies bearishness, most put writing happen at 2500 level, which indicates next potential support zone.

Heart of the market profile is to gather market generated information... this question still there..whether the market generated information is three dimensional i.e. price, volume and time ? or four dimensional price,volume,time and volatility in context of option open interest ?

specifically in India option market isnt much developed..so smart money always take position in option ( mostly option writing, as math of probability skewed towards option writers ) and based on option value is VIX which also indicates fear in the market... shall one discretionary trader include those points in market generated information ?

Alex,

The AFL I use doesnt plot POC & VAH/VAL.

For that I have to use Market Profile calculator which allows only 100 brackets of data.

while 1 min data contains 335 brackets of H/L.

 

would u tell how to deal with this.

 

regards

mahesh

Hi taq.. thanks for addition, now on will surely explain along with the charts plz feel free to ask where u get stuck :)

Hi mahesh i hand written poc vah,val area on the chart, my afl also dont plot it, for me its sufficient as its very obvious to eye ..but i prefer 30 tf for day trades and i dont depend on my poc and value areas to stop order my trades, so i am afraid i might not be any help on your issue, other TL members might help you ..

split profile i posted is handwritten with the help of calculator and later i patch it all together to get the feel of how market unfolds.

sorry frnds cant able to attach afl ( convert in to txt )...if u can see the attachment then plz use it :rofl: new to post here, burn my half an hour :crap:

//Market Profile based on volume distribution

//Program plots volume at price for various time frames as specified by parameters.

//Program also displays the instantaneous volume and cumulative volume for the chosen time frame at bottom of screen.

//

//

//Known Issues: version 1.71

//Program has been tested with QP data for EOD and eSignal and iqfeed for real time.

//Code works well for EOD data.

//Real time has 2 issues:

// 1. Occasionally display has to be shrunk or expanded to display properly.

// the problem arises from computing the first visible bar and Quick AFL changing the number of bars available

// when time frames are changed or dissplay is shrunk or expanded.

// 2. Real time display is organized in two groups. Display for one full day and display shorter time periods.

// The shorted time periods do not work properly and the opions is inhibited in the parameter settings.

//

//The code is heavy on CPU usage and it is useful to run it once at the end of each bar for real time.

//Compiling code may be useful in speeding up execution.

In above chart 'D' denotes where market open, days profile has been divided in 30 min tf ..market open below yesterday's value area and as day progressed range expanded towards upside, green color indicates POC which was steadily moving upwards.Most of the day profile was balanced, in last closing hour market close on upside but below prev value area.

Taq... basically market profile is not an indicator, it gives structure to the market generated information which facilitates to understand the market ( whether in range, trend etc ) ..my approach is i mix it with my trading method ( which is discretionary not particular one system ) ..it helps me to book my profits before trend reverse or get out on wrong trade as quickly as possible.. uses r limitless when u in sync with the market ... through my posts my approach will gradually unfolds hard to frame it in words...ur comments r always welcome

goin to post strategy for tomorrows market with the help of whatever market generated information we have..

After big move down today market try to regain the balance as shown in chart todays price movement was within y.days inside bar..red lines indicates prev value area, after market hours we got news of 50 bps rate cut, whether its already in price or not market will tell us.. but the resistance zone clearly would be previous value area which coincide with break out target of inside bar ( range of IB is b.o. projection )

As its very obvious since when market shifted down from those value areas more volume attracts other time frames, in MP terms advertisement of the price below value area been confirmed by higher volumes which confirm the weakness so even on gap up/ move up market has heavy resistance around 2775.

The indicator dominant period is depend on ehlers MESA( maximum entropy ), its totally different subject all together just put here as m studying on it to understand cycles and reversals to sharpen profile study ( any one interested can look at mesasoftware.com )

p.s. my intention is only sharing information i dont have any vested interest in above link, if its against forums policy happy to delete it.

As mentioned in last post market profile is looking very bearish establishing new lower value areas daily, even rate cuts wont able to boost the prices.This is where MP comes handy, MP allows to see what market is actually telling and help us not to mix our own feelings/impulse to the information.

As mentioned before, trying to add the angle of VIX and option open interest put call ratio in next post ..heading for break ..

    • i believe the min deposit is 50usd, except for wire transfer its 250. 
    • yes this is true, its not abattle of brokers (though a good broker should be chosen first) at the end of the day its the trader and his decisions
    • the fed reserve is sending mixed signals, it does affect crypto badly, im at a lose at the start of this year but i still have forex anyway haha
    • Yeah very strange name for a broker. To add my two cents I would also vote for Hotforex very honest broker with reliable platform. Filled my orders perfectly at yesterday breakout on Gold after the Fed meeting. 
    • Date : 26th January 2022. Market update – January 26 – Central Banks Eyed. It was a wild Tuesday in the lead up to today’s FOMC decision. Both bonds and stocks closed lower as the Fed is widely expected to outline a rate hike strategy with a 25 bp liftoff in March. Exaggerated fears of a 50 bp move and perhaps a string of 4 to 5 hikes this year have dissipated, though we suspect the markets are still positioned too bearishly. We expect the policy statement and Fed Chair Powell’s press conference to be less hawkish than anticipated, hence setting the markets up for a bit of a relief rally. So far today, Bonds have struggled, stocks hit the skids again in the US session but eased in the Asia session, and FX markets have remained in a narrow range as markets wait for the FOMC and BoC. Australia was on holiday, which made for somewhat lower volumes, but it was mainly the upcoming FOMC announcement that put a lid on markets. Ukraine tensions and speculation over gas supplies to Europe in case of an escalation of tensions with Russia are weighing on sentiment. UK PM Boris Johnson now has to answer the police over “partygate”, with calls for him to resign getting louder.   USD (USDIndex 96) continues incline – 3rd day above 20-DMA. The 10-year Treasury rate is up 0.4 bp at 1.773%. The 10-year JGB rate is also slightly higher, but the 2-year paper found buyers as the BoJ summary shows commitment to loose policy. – The bank’s stance focused on providing stimulus to reach the 2% inflation goal. Treasury’s $55 bln 5-year auction was super strong. Equities – The USA100’s -3.18% drop paced the weakness, followed by a -2.8% loss on the USA500 and a -2.3% decline on the USA30. Today, Topix and Nikkei corrected -0.25% and -0.44%, GER40 and UK100 futures are up 0.66% and 0.84% respectively, while the Euro Stoxx 50 is 0.7% higher. Earnings: General Electric, beat on earnings, but missed on revenue, which weighed heavily while American Express provided upside support on solid earnings led by record credit card spending. Microsoft beats expectations with $18.8bn profit. Central banks clearly are getting nervous about the risk of second round effects, but the IMF’s growth downgrades yesterday also highlighted the risks from slowing momentum in China and virus developments. USOil – up to $84.60 – API data shows US crude stocks fall,Biden threatens sanctions on Putin over any invasion, markets await Fed update, US approves oil exchange from strategic reserve. Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi movement launched a missile attack on a United Arab Emirates base hosting the US military. Gold – down to $1844 from $1854. Bitcoin at $37,000 handle. FX markets – USDJPY steady at 113.95. EURUSD at 1.1295 & Cable at 1.3500. European Open – Bund futures are under pressure, while US futures are moving higher, while in cash markets, the German 10-year Bund yield has lifted 0.4 bp to -0.08%. BTPs are supported though and spreads are coming in. Today – Along with today’s BoC and FOMC result, the earnings calendar is heavy. Today’s slate features several biggies, including Tesla, Abbott Labs, Intel, AT&T, Boeing, Anthem, ServiceNow, ADP, Lam Research, Crown Castle, Norfolk Southern, Freeport-McMoran, Progressive, Kimberly-Clark, Amphenol, Ameriprise, Corning, Nasdaq, Hess, Teradyne, Seagate, United Rentals, Raymond James, and Teledyne. Data includes the December advance goods trade report Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) CADCHF – Breaks 0.7300 (R1) from 0.7195 lows on Monday. Fast MAs aligned lower intraday with all momentum indicators pointing further higher. Always trade with strict risk management.
