I took the last live "Legacy" course that he offered earlier this year and I'm glad I took it. I came away with much more knowledge and having Jim basically call the market live (and his evening / morning reports) were a great training tool.

I took a MP chartbook that I was given and modified it to be as close to Windotrader that I could. It's not exact, but it's close enough and give me all of the info I need.

I've since updated it to show the contract volume within the histograms that are to the right of the TOP counts:

Note that the /ES contract shown above is /ESH16 and NOT the current /ESH17 contract that's trading currently.

Thanks for getting back with me, I really appreciate it. As I said, I'm new with MP and I primarily trade NQ. I'd like to ask you a couple of questions, if it's ok...

1) Do you use start time at 00:00 EST on your MP & VP charts?

2) I have read a few places, that some traders only focus on yesterdays profiles. Do you put emphasis on yesterday or the current day?

3) Is there any way that you could share your chartbook with me? Also, what does TR: 1s mean on your charts?

Thanks,
Rockford

1. Start times for RTH are just that, 0930 - 1615 (EST) and 1630 - 092959 (EST) for ETH on the /ES contract, same would be with your /NQ as I'm sure you know.

2. The past days are helpful to carry forward information from past days, but I always keep an eye on the developing MP during the RTH. ETH profile isn't quite as important, but it will let you know if the ETH is net short / net long / in balance and may give clues to the opening RTH movement.

3. TR = Time remaining for the current TPO as in each TPO session being 30 minutes.

CenFlo, your chart looks great. Thanks a lot, I really appreciate it. I wanted to ask, do you use a time based chart, or something different for entries etc?

I presume you mean for trade entries? Do you mind being a little more specific?

Yes, I was just curious what you used for trade entries and exits? Time based charts, renko, volume or something else?
