TOS Monkey Bars (Mkt Profile) & Volume Profile

How are you liking TOS Monkey Bars and / or Volume Profile?

I played with them a few months back, was actually pleasantly surprised that they had such offerings, however I couldn't find much in the way of documentation and / or webinars on how to use these...

If TDA / TOS has some good info, please direct me.

Not much, but I found this video moments ago: Thinkorswim Monkey Bars Tutorial: How to make Composites and single day Volume Profiles - YouTube

I prefer regular volume profile. Their monkey bars expanded is pretty cool for pure price action
but I usually go back to candles because the monkey bars expanded is hard to see.

Linda Raschke did a webinar on TOS Monkey bars last year. It is saved under archived section of TOS seminars. Ask TOS help desk for help in finding it.

Just prior to your above post, I got this response from TOS:

Hello,

Unfortunately, there is not archived material or a webinar for these studies.

You can find some information on market profile on stockcharts.com.

Both have Youtube videos available that you can search for. These videos are not made by us so beware. Check the accuracy of the info in your platform before placing trades based on the info.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

Kind Regards,
+++++

I just let them know of what you shared.... Thanks again. Tony

mfbreakout - are you finding TOS's offerings of Monkey Bars and Volume Profile to be working well, as intended, with the desired options and the flexibility to do what you want?

I don't know if I'd trust TOS' volume but the TPO (Monkey Bars) appear to be accurate as they're just time based vs. actual volume based. TOS' Volume Profile indicator is pretty bad.

Check out this version for TOS: Share-TOS: Profile_R1V2




This guy has done a good job. But again, not sure how accurate TOS' volume coming through is.

We should compare profile volume between tos and your provider, PB.
What chart and profile time frame would you like to use?

Just go to to seminars in TOS and under search type "Linda" then you will get many videos.
It is Lindas husband who has developed Monkey Bars.
Are they unware of this on TOS ?

TOS help desk can be pretty bad some times especially via e-mail . If you type in Linda Raschke in seminar search tab, you will see it. Webinar date is Feb 9th, 2011.

TOS , TPO and Volume profile is good enough the way i use it and trade Crude Oil. Market delta supposed to have best Volume profile in terms of detail and accuracy.

If i was trading ES, i would need something like market delta software.

NOTE: POC of 106.50 would not have any value for me if this level was not broken to the upside with FORCE/VOLUME.

Sure, say a 5 minute with today's volume profile as well as a composite volume profile from Monday to today on CL. Not sure why I haven't tried this before just to confirm.

Thanks! I'll throw a chart up shortly.

Update: Here's a 5 minute RTH chart of the last 5 days with each day's profile as well as a composite of the last 5 days. I have the composite's POC and Value areas listed on the right.
