I created a chart book for intraday trading one instrument (mini DAX) for a 15" laptop and a 20" monitor. I currently use a variation of the original with my desk pc and 27" monitors. I liked the layout so I thought I'd share it and welcome comments or improvements.

Features:
  • Screen 1 (laptop) is chart book with many secondary charts in tab format so you can click through them as needed. For example, the higher timeframe, daily, volume profile, week-in review (last 5 days) and a watchlist.
  • Screen 2 (monitor) is the entry chart, higher time frame, and point & figure chart, which includes correlation & percent since close for various important instruments. There is also a ATR x 4 study displayed on the P&F chart to give you an idea of volatility on the entry chart.
  • A synthetic timeframe chart for the instrument: if you trade a specific portion of the day, the synthetic trading day's ADR is displayed along with ADR bands.

Other items:
all charts are time based. Text would have to be optimized for you monitors..

Hello JohnS,

I was wondering if you can shed insight on how you managed to get the correlations and other markets info on one chart (i.e., I'm wondering how to set that up on my chart). Is it bunch of study overlays ?

A little bit info of how I have my charts organized, is similar to the one you have on the laptop one, and I switch between tabs to see what other markets are doing, but the percent changes on one screen could be more convenient. A stupid follow-up question, but does those changes update "live time" ?

Thanks,

John

John,

yes its a bunch of study overlays and they do update live. They connect to a separate chart that is updating in real time. So you could set up a "study chart" to run a bunch of correlations, ATR, % close etc. and just send the data to another "dash board" using the study overlays. see below. You can see this in the original posts' attached chart book.

Thanks, I'll play and toy around with this information.

I see u also traded GC on a 5m GC chart I ding the cumulative delta on volume funny and not as indicative as I would have liked in other markets like CL and NG any thoughts? Also I see you use relative volume - is that something u evolved to? Just trying to find the right volume indicators for my 5m GC charts

I use the cumulative delta of the bid/ask volume mainly to look for divergences and give me a feeling of what's going on "under the hood" ..

Relative volume gives me a sense of who is in the market...it's something I evolved in to.
