Value 2321.25 -> 2343.75
S1 - 2324.75, R1 - 2371.75

Daily Numbers

Range 2333.50 -> 2360.50
Value - 2341.75 -> 2360.25

Peter, first of all thank you for sharing your DT pre market prep. It's being of a great value. Please tell me about the calculations for the weekly and daily value area. seems to me you use va calculations through volume 70%, am i right? did you ever used this va calculation through tpo's? what do you say about both calculations?

Thanks!
Daniel

On the profile charts, you can see pink and black 'brackets'. The pink are time/TPO based value areas and black are volume based.

I use Time based, they are usually about the same anyway and to me a 2-3 point variance on a level holding is fine.

I took a course from Dalton many years ago and I sort of just stuck with it, I think both ways are fine.

30th March



Volume was really low yesterday, we did close higher but I don't see that really as confirming the long bias I had, we mostly moved sideways.



The weekly profile is bullish but we are in danger of ranging 2351-2359.50, so watch that area for a fade as we go.



We are holding yesterdays value area overnight (53.50), so an eye on that into the open.

Plan
- Eyes on volume into the open - if it stays low, look to fade moves
- No continuation trades between 51 and 59.50 but do look for 53.50 to hold
- If we break out from the 51-59.50 area - look for a headfake and take a continuation only on decent volume

Weekly Numbers
Range - 2317.75 -> 2362.50
Value 2335-> 2362.50
S1 - 2324.75, R1 - 2371.75

Daily Numbers
Range 2348.75-> 2359.75
Value - 2353.50 -> 2358.50
Globex 2353.50 -> 2362.50

Settlement 2357

Today Only - 2351-2359.50, 2353.50

Long Term Levels - 2178.75, 2129.50, 2099.75, 2084, 2078.75, 2000.75
