Excellent answer @rleplae right on the money.

I'd like to add that the market can have rotational days as well. Rotating from the high of the range to the low of the range over and over.

A rotational day is typically indicative of traders being non-committal and the market going from to long > short > long > short etc, and rotating back and forth.

Market profile is useful in recognizing rotational days and the end result is a market profile print that's relatively balanced and looks like a bell curve standing on the Y-axis.
