@CenFlo When you say you've taken Dalton's Legacy course, are you referring to his "Trading Like You've Never Heard Before"?

Also, I wanted to ask you, are you using the default settings with Sierra Chart's Market Profile? If not, can I ask what customizing you've done?


I took the last live "Legacy" course that he offered earlier this year and I'm glad I took it. I came away with much more knowledge and having Jim basically call the market live (and his evening / morning reports) were a great training tool.

I took a MP chartbook that I was given and modified it to be as close to Windotrader that I could. It's not exact, but it's close enough and give me all of the info I need.

I've since updated it to show the contract volume within the histograms that are to the right of the TPO counts:

Note that the /ES contract shown above is /ESH16 and NOT the current /ESH17 contract that's trading currently.
