Hi guys,
What do you think, is it possible consistency to make profit without using DOM and order flow at all?
For example, how exactly is useful the information from the DOM in trading volatile markets such a currency futures or indexes? Isn't a madness to try reading the ladders in such a fast market?
So, is not a right way to think that volatile market (with a lot of swings) is better to trade of charts (even the information is from the past), and markets such a 10, 30-US notes to be traded with DOM stuff?

A trader I know who used to trade CL and now trades mainly equity indexes does not use DOM/order flow at all and is extremely consistent.
