Profiler, sharing this here because I like your thread, I hope you don't mind.

Sometimes some of the most obvious ways to look at the data yield insight. This is the cash index but I'm pretty...

Some people like using the NYSE TICK, others do not. I am in the "use it when it's useful" camp. Here it is for today. Hardly could get above zero the whole day, hung out mostly between -500 and...

I was positioned short and thankfully we got the break. I really dislike days like today--I don't like to trade for 4-5 ticks at a time but the market has been so directionally weak that it's either...

If you are trading right now and waiting for a break of 83.75 for new lows, I hope you are laughing as hard as I am. It's like watching two slugs fight. Times like this, I wish I had a few hundred...

I was looking to short in the morning, but I really thought we'd see a 90 or 91 print so I was not short when the market came down to 83. I had 82.25 to 83.50 marked, and to be honest I chopped...

What adds to the lack of conviction is that the Dow is trading almost entirely below yesterday's range, whereas the S&P has not even touched yesterday's low and is in range, and the N100 is trading...

I'm not advocating straying too far from plan, but this is a great example of how you are identifying context and making decisions based on it, instead of just buying/selling at a LVN or HVN. In the...

The best location was obviously lower and a bit earlier in the 96s, but as the shot below shows, at this point there was a VPOC shift higher and a bit of a double distribution, albeit not the...

No worries mate. Today was also my worst day and only day I would call "bad" in July, too bad we didn't end it better. It's FOMC day, and the liquidity is just absolute shit after the announcement,...

I considered a long at 90.50-.75 as well. But I wanted to first see some sign of buying. There was buying as the volume certainly picked up there, but it really kind of blew through the NVPOC--at...

I see a good case for a bounce from 70, as it is the most fair price of the entire distribution. But HV prices are prices that have been accepted previously, and while they are sometimes good for a...

This is because the September ESU contract's actual high on May 22 was indeed 1680.25. But Profiler is using back-adjusted data prior to the June->Sept roll, so his May 22 data is from ESM, but...

Maybe the question is, what guidance from Bernanke on Wednesday (and somewhat Thursday I suppose) will they hear? Since Bernanke's flub-a-dub in May, the fed had to pull out all the stops to get...

72 was a great spot to buy, as was 70. But it's all relative--maybe good spot, but is the market "singing" to you? I did not take any trades today either. Just no volume, no range, and no real...

Ditto -- I bought 67.50 around 12:15 ET. If you look at how BA was pulling down the dow at that time, yet how the S&P just would NOT break down, then it's clear ES wanted to try for a new high. ...
