Now that I have been watching MP for awhile I am getting your language a little better. And @greenr's as well. MP provides a reference basis that is daily, helping to give better definition to chaos and/or expectation. Obviously still just watching, not getting anything from it. But allowing the concept and the visual to sink in. The indicator I have used really drags on my resources though. I may be doing something wrong. I did set Calculate on bar Close back to True, and that helped a lot, but it is still a memory hog. Any thoughts?


If your thinking of going down this route Mr Gary....get the Fin-Algo TPO software for $250 and ill provide you with my settings

TPO and Volume Profile Chart for NinjaTrader

We can push foreward form there

Price is just floating around. Started to feel wrong, or like a hopium situation.


EDIT:




Would have nailed my stop for no reason. The trade had lost it's energy.

My direction was right this morning, my timing was off. I missed the move, had other things to do after I got out.





Kind of bummed about it, sitting here tempted to scalp...

OK, 2 scalps, net +10 on the day. Very disappointing compared to what I was expecting, but it was my choice to enter, to exit, to not re-enter, etc. And, there was not a guaranteed outcome...

Something to explore this weekend.

Morning's target hit...




"not fair" is not accurate. There is no "fair". Every day provides an opportunity, I choose how to meet it. I knew the trend appeared to be down. I knew the major daily trade advice came out with short side preferred. Catching a reversal can take several entries, and I did not have time today to stay at it.
