Regarding profile and order flow

* Market profile is not a trading technique but a market visualization technique.
* I hypothesize that profile became popular with floor traders because they already had the market cognition behind profile because they were tape readers and didn't have charts. As a tape reader, you must keep track of price in your head. The way you do that is to repeat it. So, the volume information can be inferred from the change in price over time. So, market profile was a visualization of what floor traders had to do in their heads anyway. However, if you don't have the market cognition piece in your head then profile won't make much sense because it is learning it backwards.
* It is not possible to learn tape reading or order flow from books. I am sure you can learn something but it is unlikely to take you more then 25%-50% of the way.
* What I used to do and found that worked well was just to get a some vague impression of how some technique was suppose to work and then I'd study it and find out how it really worked.
* Even more so, today's markets are becoming super efficient. The time is now better spent in running your own proprietary analysis then in reading books.

I second tpredictors comments. You can't learn order flow from reading a book. The best (IMHO) place to start is with Jigsaw's Order Flow Analysis Lessons. Before you buy anything, watch those videos.

Is this some type of There are many many great books....gets to reading my friend...

And many others. Before you jump into order flow learn about what is happening in a regular auction.... a two way auction. Why do some buy and others sell?

Why do you buy what you buy in day to day life at the places you do? Why sell something (car, boat etc...).

The market is just life.

How well do you understand it????????????????????


It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.
