I was watching NT this morning and kept noticing screen lag, had been noticing problems for awhile. I closed it and opened Sierra and the performance improvement was noticeable. It may be related to the memory usage and my hardware, but for my setup Sierra seems to be easier on it.

Gary, what MP/VP pack did you use on NT? I have been using Acme full pack with MTP code and a couple of other things ...plus I have dual Time frame charts open on ES, ZB and occasionally NQ open along with DOm execution with IQ feed and Vision and have never had any issues with NT (running a fairly common i7 SAndy Bridge at 2700K with 16GB memory)

Yesterday saw a strong continuation move to the downside with price setting new lows up until the the final periods, but the cumulative delta rose basically all day long. Price moved up roughly $1 going into K period.

Now this morning's jobs report sparked a push down that appears to have blown massive stops of long positions that built up yesterday, showing a 5k 1m volume bar...





but that move has pushed into a major support area on both the MP and the daily. Not going to short down here as that may be exhaustion.

You are far ahead of me with technology. I am using GOM MP, not running a volume ladder on NT live, and running on 4mb.

And while I may be reading that the best trade to take was to jump in front of that freight train, I cannot do it when voume is that intense. And volume is the big topic of a post I never finished. My read of volume is limited to certain things. I think that is why I am so obsessed with studying the volume ladder, which still is just garbage to me. But I did load version 2 and it has some options that may be helpful.

That is not a very good place for it.

I have come back to this post 3x now.


I would agree. I have a cheat sheet myself. Could not work Sierra without it!

I tried to add into my long, but my dog jumped on me and started licking my face like crazy. Obviously she is concerned that we are in a downtrend.

ES 1539 and CL 92.17

Somewhere in there, will change my mind, but for now I am staying on the long train. I should have added at the push to 92ish but decided my risk was enough. That was way more heat than I am used to. But even a 1 contract 50 tick loss would be tolerable compared to what I am trying to teach myself. I do not like when a trade comes back on me, but that is a bad habit. Learned from scalping, trading positions, using multiple contracts, etc.


Maybe ES 1537. Really, CL 92.17. Yes, forget ES above whatever for right now. I don't trade ES and am just complicating my decisions.
