Last trade on a pullback to the 13EMA

I have documented this last Long just for the pleasure of sharing. This trade took quite a while to deliver its reward but it finally did. The nice thing about it was the low risk if it had failed (3/4 ticks at risk) but with at least a 3:1 potential reward. I got a 5:1 ratio for 15 ticks.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

I was reading that, I'm having a hard time with it.

Are there any tools that just display something like a VolumeAtPrice Type of display? The GOMmP seems to display at set start times.

I think that has been discussed and shown in that thread, but you can try posting the question there for a response.

The GomMP doesn't allow to have start and end times for each profile intra day (as far as I understand)
There is a function within the GomMP indicator to draw a profile across any number of bars, however this is done
by hand so to speak and covers bars that have already been printed, if that makes sense.

I've been asking on several threads here for a volume at price thing but so far have not had much response.

The GomMP is excellent for a daily (created real time) and per bar POC and/or profile, not to mention the delta stuff.
(imo)
There is also iMarketProfile indicator. But I don't thinks it's actual volume but TPO.
Still a good indicator though.

PS: and of coarse Eds_Vol_Price_Bar (but you will lose them if re-fresh or change any settings on the chart)

That's more or less the functionality I wanted, was just to plot it across user selected bars. Futuretrader mentioned that functionality, so I know it's there. A user-defined VAP might be nice.

The GOMMP will work as I just need it for small intervals of real time data anyways.

I'm reading through that thread and I'll see if I can figure out how to get it to do what I need.

Here's the manual on GomMP Market Profile indicator, the functionality you want is under the adding custom profile heading.

Ya meng... I'm reading that one. I can't get it to do what I want. I don't want to clutter up the thread with the Gomi indie, I'll figure it out.

----EDIT----
Ok..... The keys weren't working b/c I didn't have the latest version. I need sleep!

I was on vacation, and have noticed this thread has started to move away from the original topic and more into modifying cjbooth's strategy.

Anyway, I was looking at the markets just now and noticed this potential setup, except there was no divergence in Stochastics. So I guess it would not have a been a trade cj would have taken. But then again, Im using the ZigZag indicator from Sierra Charts, which draws different HL than the ZigZagUTC. Maybe someone can compare with their NT charts.
