Beautiful...... @josh ... If you only knew. The trip was bitter sweet, within a week of getting my tickets for the US Grand Prix in Austin my best friend told me his only daughter was getting married. I never mentioned the GP to him and assured him we would be honored to attend. For three days we ate and partied on the beach surrounded by the Bride and Groom's beautiful young guests, this wedding was definitely 'over the top' in everyone's opinion.

I think it's good to get away from the market and focus on friends and family once in awhile. The problem I have is, I wake up at 1am for a few days when I take time away! Gearing up here for an invasion of Grand Kids who start arriving on Wednesday, should be a great time. Thanks to all who follow this thread and I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving.


BTW, I sold my GP tickets within an hour of putting them on Ebay.

It's always nice to come home, and get back in the groove. Now, I'll take my Holiday.

Just wanted to post a chart with some of my thoughts for a particular trading session...in this case, the EU, my favorite.

I base my trading decisions on price action and price location. Most of my key price levels are placed on my chart during my PREP work, the night before the EU session begins.

I also keep a very close eye on my CASH chart which is right beside my order platform.

IMO, it pays to do your homework I hope it helps.

Good morning/ afternoon

Just found this thread and I find it quite interesting

Please let me know what you are showing for the vpoc for /6E on a 15m chart

TOS has 2789 at this time of writing

Thanks

Bill

EDIT

I see that you are showing spot w/ a poc of 2785 - so close enough

Futures Globex

Just a word of caution. You may want to read the entire thread. We use specific studies (vwap, volume histo) that start at specific session times...Globex, EU, and US.

It may be close enough for you but not for me. Just sayin, be careful. However, not my thread and probably shouldn't say anything.

Thank you

There will be a difference between spot and fute

I trade primarily on price and try to find why price is doing what it's doing at a certain level, 50% retrace etc

Think or Swim can sometimes be in its "own world" thus the reason for my question

Again thanks

Bill

Why do you start your vwap at the 2am european futures open instead of the 3am European cash open?

EU VWAP and Volume Histogram


@josh,

I have replicated my charts to match Cashish's, with his help.

I do believe we start the EU session at 2am EST because that's when Frankfurt, Germany begins. I believe it's important to capture that price activity. Cashish can correct me if I'm wrong.
