No, we all paid to have access to elite materials, and it's for elite members only. It's not much, you should join. If you think it will substantially help your trading, then it should be a small price to pay.

I am only beginner and try demo account. So I can not afford to pay for elite section. As soon as I receive real profit i will join elite section. I just thought that to share two indicators is not really much for you. thanks

As far as I'm aware this is a forum policy, I'm just making you aware of that policy. I have nothing to do with it. Mike sets the rules as the "big dog" and we follow them.

Elite material cannot be shared to non-Elite members, don't ask again as it is quite rude really.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Good questions and it's great you're being critical.

The answer is the blue bars are showing where professionals are trading with each other. It doesn't show buying or selling. Just above average trade size. In my experience often (but not always) occurs when price is about to reverse. It really takes a lot of time to learn how to read it properly, and I would never trade solely with this. For me it's just another piece of information that I add. if I get confluence then that's great. If I get a blue bar without any confluence then I'm not going to act on it.

Here is my bund chart from yesterday. I posted this about 10 minutes ago before I saw your post so I'm not cherry picking a market/timeframe. This is just what I had on my workspace right now. There are two areas with blue bars. Both were at reversals. :)

This is the only indicator from eminiwatch that I still use. I actually use my own version but it's the same idea.




Hi, is the better Pro AM able to be used with the Free Ninja Trader and a realtime data feed from Interactive Brokers? Sent Barry a message on his website several weeks ago and I haven't gotten any reply.


I've been using Quotetracker with the IB feed for many years and right now I'm interested to see if Barry's Pro Am is useful to supplement the signals in my own trading. If the Pro-Am provides a edge, I'd be interested to use Ninja Trader to code up backtest my entire trading system. Has anyone used the Pro Am in their back test? If so, would appreciate comments.

I would recommend instead FatTails indicator, "anaBetterVolume" (available in elite). It's free and much simpler IMO. Or, if you understand what the indicator is trying to say with its color codings (what's the criteria and purpose of climax, churn, etc.) you could learn to read what the volume means and not have to worry with the color coding, but that's something you have to decide.

TRIGGER
1. I try to identify buyers/sellers coming in with the ladder + CVD.
I basicly try to see the cumulative volume delta (or comulative delta volume, call it what you like) going down while price stalls or moves up. The more selling volume i see coming in without price moving accordingly on the same direction, the more confident i'll be going into the trade.

Why you are looking to move CVD against the price and not with it? Should CVD not go with the price?

Thank you for sharing your trading style!

Best regards,

Malvolio
