Define user variables to hold key levels generated by Market Profile
I'd like to ask Chad or anyone else what is the link that explains how to define user variables to hold key levels generated by Market Profile like VAH/VAl/POC etc.
Also, i know it's behond the scope of this presentation but i'd like to know if it's possible to record into a user variable the last swing High and Low (structure pivot high/low 3 or 5 bars user-definable) for any specific time frame.
Go to charthub and search for "Swing High Low". I created a chart for you. I used the Signal Statistics Indicator to grab the price of the last swing high and low in a custom indicator. You can import the chart and see how I did it. I've also setup the custom indicator to store the last swing high price in V#15 and last swing low into V#16 but you can change both those in the custom indicator preferences. You'll need to change the fractal settings in the signals "SwingHi" and "SwingLo" if you want to use a period other than the 5 I've used.
The other video you're looking for is titled "Exporting Price Levels". Search our video library page for that text and you'll find it. I would also recommend watching the video titled "User Variables" if you haven't already.
Hope that helps.
