Trevor,

I always want accurate profiles, so I want to use a 1-tick resolution when building the profile data so that value areas, POC's etc are as accurate as possible. I prefer to display my profiles primarily on a daily chart, and for instance on a TPO chart I am using 30-minute TPO's.

Worse, in other platforms I've used in the past, the accuracy ended up only being down to 1-minute resolution as opposed to my desired resolution of 1-tick.

Mike

Hi Big Mike,
If I understand correctly, basically you want the highest resolution profiles possible so that everything that is calculated from them is as accurate as possible. Given that, MarketDelta gives you the capability to accomplish what you want. Here are the key points:
  • MD stores all the historical data locally on your computer making it extremely fast at computing and manipulating volume and profile data. The locally stored data can be refreshed from a remote server at any time with a click of a button.
  • Because the volume data is local, MD computes the profiles off of the high resolution of data on hand and then next highest, and then the next highest. So if you have 100 days of tick data stored, all profile data will be computed off the 100 days of tick data creating extremely high resolution profiles. If the profile you were viewing was 500 days, MD uses 100 days of tick and then 1 min data for the remaining days. This is all done automatically.

Is the trading room focused on learning strategies alone using Market Delta charts or also general teachings on the market, market theory, profiles and so on..?

It is very focused on reading the Footprint chart, but other trading concepts and special topics are covered from time to time. A suite of recorded webinars is also provided to attendees which go in-depth on other trading topics.

What instrument is traded?

ES, NQ, ZB, Euro, CL are the primary markets. FDAX, FESX, FGBL referenced sometimes.

Is MD chart needed or we can join the service using other chart package?

MarketDelta Charts is not required to join however you will get more value when using MD Charts. Here are 2 reasons.
  1. There is a free inter-market divergence indicator provided to all room members that only works with MD.
  1. Also the trading levels are automatically programmed to show up on your MD charts.
More info provided here.

Trevor, I got an email from MD a couple of weeks ago about a webinar that took place last Monday, March 4. I can't remember the title, but it was at a time I was unable to attend live. I looked at MD's web site and saw some webinar recordings but none have been added to this page in the last year. Was the webinar last Monday recorded, and if so, is it possible for me to watch it?

It was recorded and was posted here. Unlock Your Potential Using Common Sense Secrets from a Trading Veteran We always record our webinars and make them available in one form or another. Some webinars are reserved for subscribers only as part of the additional value of being a subscriber.

Suggestion on Footprint improvement

Hello, Trevor.
I'm a new MD user and can't but admire your product which is definitely the single most helpful software available to retail investor.
Though bid-ask chart is the the purest and finest form of maket data representation, I prefer to work with visual Footprint. However, sometimes I find it rather difficult due to the following issue. Volume bars in each time-based Footprint chart aren't normalized. I mean that we might have two neighbouring bars(e.g. one hour bars) with sufficiently different volumes. But volume bars in them seem like they are almost equal bacause they cover almost the same area on the chart. To my mind this situation may crerate serious misunderstanding of market information. I assume this could be fixed by normalizing chart area with corresponding volume(i.e. 10k bar will cover 10 squared cells, 100k bar will cover 100 squared cells). I asked MD support about this problem but they told me it couldn't be solved. Perhaps, you might advise me something on this matter.
Thank you very much for your kind attention!

Hello Mr. Harnett.

Are there any intentions to 64-bit version and MD Charts for Linux/MacOS?

Thank you.

No, there are no plans for an Linux/MacOS version at this time.

I tested your MD Trader program and liked it the most out of the other 3 I tested.
I'm looking into your charting program now but I need to be able to write my own code using
your volume profile code as my base.

Is it possible to take your code for the volume profile and alter it to create my own levels (similar to va high and va low)? I've already written it for thinkscript (thinkorswim platform) but am looking around at other options.

I believe you are talking about MarketDelta Charts, not MarketDelta Trader.

The answer is no, RTL (our proprietary programming language for working with indicators) does not provide this currently. The only solution will probably be plugin using our SDK, but even then it would probably take some work on our end to enable plugins to see the data you need. We would need more information about what data points you need for your calcs.
