This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

How to Square Price and Time

I will try and keep this simple with an example using the ES.

I know from research that 1 point (of movement) is worth 4 bars of time, therefore each bar of time is worth 0.25 of price on the ES.

What I don't know is the formula to work out how many bars of time equal 1 point. I would like to be able to do this in any market but I don't know the formula, can anyone help?


PS If you would prefer to message me the answer I will gladly share the rest of the formula and its application to intraday /day trading.
