Hi
Does anyone know how to draw a profile for a given balance area rather than just per day. I know it's possible market delta charts but I prefer tos.

Thanks.

Monkey Bars the study will allow you to also use candles/ bars etc

The study vs the chart type has more options

Also, if you are wanting to use Volume Profile - do not trust it. TOS does not have true tick data, they receive it in blocks

The nodes are not even close to being accurate at any setting

Hi all,

I've just started demo'ing TOS as a possibility for my swing trading account. I use VP extensively and am a bit disappointed so far with TOS's capabilities in this area. Is it still the case that you can't create your own custom profile for a specified date or bar range (ie: composite profile)? perhaps I just haven't figured it out yet.

Can the volume still not be trusted as mentioned in this thread? Even though im only considering the platform for swing trading, it will still bug me if the volume at price is inaccurate.

thanks.

I have compared my TOS VAH, VAL POC etc with a friend VP values, and they always match. He uses VP extensively

and uses Market delta etc. and is very particiular with quality of his tick data.

I am not sure if TOS provides all the capabilities/functionalities of other VP platform but i find it to be god enough for

my swing trading.

Following is a video showing how to set up VP at TOS. There are many others on youtube showing other functions of TOS VP.

I'm not trying to be an ass,,,,

Compare ToS volume profile to @FuturesTrader71 /ES M15 during his morning trader bite

ToS is not accurate

I've continued playing around with TOS and I still can't figure out how to make a composite profile. It seems as if it's not possible, but I thought id ask here just to make sure.

So for example say i've got a 60min chart up which goes back a month. I've then got an individual volume profile for each day. All good so far. What I need is to be able to create a composite profile for say, the last 3 days.

Anyone know if that is that possible?

Thanks but this is specifically for swing trading and being able to create composite profiles is kind of a pass/fail for me as to whether ill ultimately use TOS or not.

I know volume profile is not TOS's strong point, but I was kind of hoping it would check all the boxes I required for swing trading. I may end up just using Sierra for both my day and swing trading. Still busy investigating.

Thanks.
