Free Market Profile Charting Tool

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm new to the Market Profile.

After 6 months studying forex in my free time I finally found a method that I understand and which doesn't make me enter a position for some strange reason when a line (that i don't exactly know why has been placed there) is touched from the price.

 

I read here and there few books of Wiley Steidlmayer and I appreciate the theory behind the TPOs analysi. It gave me a more complete knowledge than many other books around which to a beginner like me looks like without rhyme or reason.

I instead less understood the part about the Market Profile with Volumes, maybe I'm not ready for that, even if I think would be really usefull.

 

So my analysis with MP are only about price movement and Bell Curve fullfilment, NO Volumes... also because finding the right, free datas about volumes would be impossible.

 

I'm a beginner so I don't wnat to spend money for something that will probably make me loose more money.

 

After have looked for a free software with TPOs I gave up and choose to make my own.

 

I finally developed an Excell worksheet (actually is made with OpenOffice Calc) with which is possible to visualize Market Profile charts after have inserted Highs and Lows from a simple copy/paste from the MT4 History Center.

 

Thanks to macros I've written is possible then to calculate automatically Value Area, Point of Control, Initial Balance, TPOs Count.

 

The file generates the profiles for an whole week.

In one sheet every day is splitted in asian and western session. In the other there are the whole days which are then joined toghether for shape the weekly market profile.

 

I use it with the forex spot, but I don't know if it is a good idea... I use the forex spot only because is the most accessible (I use alpari) to a beginner.

 

The truth is that I'm sharing this tool I made because I want to know if it is the correct way to interpret the MP with the Forex.

For instance I didn't know what to use as Initial Balance in a market opened 24h. So I choosed to consider the asian session as IB for the whole day, but I'm not sure this is the correct thing to do.

 

Maybe market profile should be used only with futures? but how can I trade futures in an easy way as the forex can offer?

do you have any market to suggest me which would be better to trade with the MP?

 

These are two images from my worksheet... you can also appreciate a perfect Bell curve for the weekly profile

I hope that my work can be of any itnerest for some other beginner and to receive some usefull help or suggestion on how to better use this tool.

 

If want the worksheet, just send me a private message on this forum or leave your email.

There is a website by M. Jardine, who wrote a book on the Subject and posts futures trades, in advance, once a day or so when he is not traveling. He will not post a trade he dislikes (naturally) but the point is more about set-ups in advance that he think will work. enthios.com

My email : premal24@yahoo.com . Please forward me the worksheet. I am using Market Profile for sometime now and would be able to guide if there is any change needed in the work you have done.

 

Hi I sent you the file.

 

I've a first question for you..

 

in my worksheet there's the possibility to chose the price scale step. With that I mean that each row of letters covers a range of price that I usually set at 10 pips. So if the High of a TPO is at 1.3449 and the low at 1.3441 it will place only a letter at the value 1.3440.

 

So changing this value (you can change it from the last sheet) you can obtain different view of the profile with different POC VA etc.. so what should it be the standard setup? 1 pip?

 

@djohnsonhot

thanks for the site

Today a strong move after the american Initial Balance brought the price to develope the POC exactly in the same level where was built the POC for last week.

Intersting, I don't know what does it mean, but interesting :haha:

 

I would say that america thinks the value is there at 1.3115, if price goes up again is probably going to go down at 1.3115 again..?

For sure during the american session last week has always been bearish.

Hi gram;

I don't use or have MP software, I just need the daily VAL, POC, VAH for reference; so the question is if you know of a site from where I could download this info daily.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Sergio83,

I'll repost this as I see my e-mail did not show up.

I'd appreciate having a look at your software tool. I am also interested in using MP for forex and perhaps for commodities.

 

 

 

Many thanks,

Cheers,

gram

Hi,

 

Going forward, there is no issue with you contacting each other but just posting your email address openly is not good practise. If I could suggest that anyone who wishes to request this file, private messages sergio83.

 

Thanks,

 

TheNegotiator.

Support comes in at the 124.00 level where a break if seen will aim at the 123.50 level. A cut through here will turn focus to the 123.00 level and possibly lower towards the 122.50 level. Its daily RSI is bearish and pointing lower suggesting further weakness. On the upside, resistance resides at the 124.50 level. Further out, we envisage a possible move towards the 125.00 level. Further out, resistance resides at the 125.50 level with a turn above here aiming at the 126.00 level. On the whole, EURJPY retains downside nearer term.

    • Date : 25th April 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 25th April 2019.FX News Today The BoJ left rates unchanged, but clarified its forward guidance, saying it will keep rates very low at least through spring of next year. Also, they will expand the eligible collateral and also consider the introduction of an Exchange-Traded Fund (ETF) lending facility, that would allow to temporarily lend ETFs that the Bank holds to market participants. Japanese stock markets outperformed going into the announcement, but mainland China indices were under pressure. Stock futures are moving higher in Europe and the US. The weaker than expected Ifo reading yesterday and a negative GDP print from South Korea overnight added to concerns about the outlook for world growth, which means rates will stay low for longer. The Swedish Riksbank is widely expected to keep monetary policy on hold today. The front end WTI future is trading at USD 65.91 per barrel. Charts of the Day   Technician’s Corner USDCHF is consolidating since last night within 1.01970-1.02190 range. However, the pair still holds above 1.0200, suggesting the continuation of the uptrend, as the pair remains well above the medium term Support at 1.0123 level (6 month Resistance converted to Support). Intraday, however, and as momentum indicators have been flattened, consolidation mode could possibly hold within the day. A cross below 1.0200 could retest yesterday’s lows. AUDUSD within the strong 3-year Support, 0.7000-0.7020. It could react as a retracement level for the asset. However, the 3 black crows in the daily chart suggest that negative bias is increasing for AUDUSD.
