Is there any way to statistically measure whether a P or B Volume Profile actually has use? Id love to see that and then try to put it in context of a the prevailing trend at that time.

p and b profiles are a little subjective. They're only an indication of short covering or long liquidation. I like to use them to prepare for the two scenarios. Especially after a couple of nice sell offs and you get a b profile and then the session starts with a tight range, adding more volume to the 'b' over the two day period. To me, this has got to be trapping some laggard shorts. There's a point at which these shorts say 'uncle' and want out, these rallies offer some of the best R:R trades for intra-day punters that I've come across....

That's how i use them, but i have no statistical data yet on how successful they are. Maybe once i get around to using my Edgewonk I'll be able to sort that play out.

P and b profiles generally denote that the market had an initiative move, followed by a consolidation. From there you can monitor the consolidation and look for the market to extend the move or begin retracing and filling in the stem. There's nothing secret the profile chart is showing you, but I do like how quickly you can underline the action using them.

there areas of balance in both// mark them of and see what the stats are when you have a brake out of balance...i would never fade a brake out of balance..i would trade with the brake out..stop inside the range. if you gap out side it ..check the retest stats. you will need to do that by hand unless you are a computer software expert/
