You might consider coordinating with LukeGeniol on the data feed comparison thread for bid-ask studies:


it would be interesting to see how TradeStation data stacks up.

TS can't stack up because it doesn't have bid/ask data. It has only uptick & downtick. I've done comparisons and it's very similar but not exact. A GOM framework would have to be developed for TS and it'd have to be done in a DLL because easylanguage wouldn't be powerful enough. So that's why I have charts that require bid/ask data in Market Delta. I use the tool appropriate for the job. I know you have been critical of this but it works well for me.

I'll check out the thread.

I forgot to add that TS is further handicapped for bid/ask work because it timestamps bars with only minute resolution.

I have heard rumors that TS will support bid/ask this summer but I have no idea if it's true.

I took advantage of the slow activity today to get caught up on something I've been wanting to do for a long time - make a version of my pro paintbar for Ninjatrader! I've almost got it finished and plan to release a beta version real soon. Here's a chart from Friday afternoon (my time is 6 hours ahead of NY time).

This version does not give direction so you have to interpret that yourself. But with a bit of practice it's not difficult to do. Just think of the blue bars as fading the current move and the yellow bars as amateurs going with the current move. Magenta is a very strong pro bar and white is a very weak amateur bar.

This indicator uses 3 different algorithms to analyze the volume to classify it as pro or amateur. It has audio alerts for each type.

Look forward to test them.....have been following this indi for sometime and like it a lot....not sure HOW it defines pro or amateur but it seems very reliable as confirmation or warning sign....thanks for sharing !!!

Friday before the open I wrote in my daily update on the blog:


Quoting 
My guess is we balance today and start a move down on Monday. Monday’s a holiday you say? They like to move it down while we’re sleeping.

On Sunday I described the short swing trade setup in my weekly review.


Quoting 
There is a short swing trade setting up but I’d like to see a bit more weakness on the smaller timeframes.

Yesterday I saw some some weakness that convinced me to take a partial short position and I went short at 92.25. I took a partial position because I was trading against cycles on the 40500 & 13500 tick charts. As it often happens, the more difficult trades (the ones I take with a smaller size) turn out to be the good ones.



So far it's playing out as expected. This is going to be an interesting week. I don't want to get too far ahead of myself but I believe we could retest the lows one more time. If it holds then we'll likely move higher. If it doesn't hold then things could get really ugly for the bulls. I go over the market profile evidence for a large move either away in the weekly update on Sunday.

This is a technique I'm working on. I call it "working the cycles".

Basically if price goes against me after my first target is hit but I still have one contract on, if the setup is still valid and I get a timing entry then I add a contract to my position. I did this 3 times. Last contract I got out at cost (the new averaged cost) + 1 but it is technically a small loss since depending on how you look at it. In any case the total is 2.75 pts. Hit my goal and now relaxing on sim.

This is a swing trade from yesterday (image from before the close). Took one off and I'm holding the second. I'm still bearish here, at least until I see some follow-through by the bulls.

Hey Cunparis, I was looking for your POT indicator, do you have a recent version that you are using?
