I will say this.. any and all that you study is good but you will never be able to decipher it and even if you did to execute on it with an extended period of time as an edge is a ridiculous endeavor. I admire your in depth study and it's good for a bit but there is no special key to unlock.

Also hft citadel virtu spend 200 million a year around the glove on tech and even more on bright minds to do what you are doing x a million.

Keep at it but understand longer term is the only way you can compete. This may be 1 minute or 5 or 4 hours but no way you can go against the hft. Just not possible sorry. At least not in futures with fees etc.

It is a good study though but understand it and move on for your sanity and pocket book

yes indeed I agree. Also the information/data we have is limited compared to those guys. Look at the 5min chart for RTY last Friday (9/9/2022). Price trends up and the CDV (Cumulative Delta Volume) trends down. Often NQ and ES behave quite rationally but we did not figure out yet what is going on here with RTY.
