A great trader to learn from.

This has been mentioned on this site before but its worth mentioning again. There is a very skilled trader who generously tweets all day long as he trades the ES. I'm learning a lot from him. He's a master of the volume profile.

His ability to predict market moves is pretty amazing.

Here is his twitter page: FuturesTrader71 (FuturesTrader71) on Twitter and here's his blog Simplicity in Trading

Dude's amazing.


He just nailed it again. Bought the ES at 107650 , 1.25 points from the low and got out 1 tick off the recent high at 1088.

chart showing LVNs and HVNs

Here's a chart he posted today showing Low Volume Nodes (red) and High Volume Nodes (green) in the volume profile. Check out how price interacts with the LVNs and HVNs:
ES_F - Composite since hi. Still balanced. Lots of work up above.

Anyone applying his method?

I was having a look through his website and he is truly a skilled trader. The Auction market approach that he applies appeals to me. I agree that one can assume the market moves randomly and yet still be profitable based mainly on money management but his approach adds an almost scientific structure that I find very appealing. I find myself asking why the market will turn at a certain point or move to a certain level and the auction process seems to answer this.

I would be very interested in discussing his method further if anyone is currently applying it?

Do we even have an indicator for NT that will show Hi-Node Lo-Node Volume Profile like shown in his chart above?

I am pretty sure FT71 does it all by hand the night before or in the morning before trading. Check out the videos on his site and he goes through the steps.

I am on NT and use the Price Volume Histogram indicator along with a daily market profile indicator and you can get something similar to what he uses. The Price Volume Histogram can give you a composite market profile to mark up the HVN and LVN and composite POCs. The Daily MPs can be used to show other areas you want to trade, naked POCs, gaps, etc.

there is a Market profile indicator on the Ninja forum. I think it is also on futures.io (formerly BMT). Give you the POC, Value areas and you can see high and low volume.
