Yes........I've read some of the "no bs day trading" material..........a good read.

But.......what feature or features does x-trader have that enhances DOM reading?

It shows the cumulative volume at each price. Many have been asking Ninjatrader to do that, it'd be trivial to do it but they've got their hands full with NT7 as it is.

One needs to know the volume at that price to know if an order is pulled or traded. One could look at another indicator such as a GOM ladder or something but the problem then becomes watching two things at once when they both move lightening fast.

I went for X-Trader. You can get it "free" from Velocity Futures. The cost is bundled in commissions and it's "only" 10 cents more roundtrip than Mirus.

October was a major milestone for me - it marked 1 year of profitable swing trading, netting me $18k in profits trading ES ($19k including last week's swing trade). That may not be a lot compared to the people who make that every month, but it was a major milestone for me. I wrote a lengthy blog post about it but here's what counts: the account statement:

I've been wanting to post that for a while now, but I always wanted to make sure it was consistent. So now it's been 12 consecutive months, going on 13.

BRILLIANT JOB sir........consistancy is a foundation of dynamic profitability!

Does the X-Trader DOM show the total volume for the ETH Session/RTH Session/ or the past few minutes?

It shows the total volume and also highlights the total volume at the current price since price came to that price.

if you look on some of the dom videos at you tube you can see this, easier to see than to explain

I am interested in the second field. How long is it persistent? The contract can trade through a particular price many times; does it reset all the time?

It resets as soon as price ticks up or down. I find it challenging to keep track of that. I'd prefer this value be shown in a separate column but I can't figure out how to do that.

Nice short yesterday that stopped overnight at yesterday's low and the naked VPOC from the prior day.

I wasn't even looking for that short. I was just daytrading it and I saw it making a double top on the intraday chart and then I looked at the daily and started putting it together. The cincher was IBM & Apple earnings due after the close and I wanted to "sell the news".

read someof the thread


I have read some of your thread and watch a few you tubes....I am just lost in what you are doing.... I think you may be much better of trading a 1 minute chart or es with volume and bid ask delta....when I watch your vids it like sellers could be here but it may break up or down... a divergence here etc....it looked like a sell here.....

a question ...if in a bar there is a volume of 1000....200 are buyers 800 are sellers.......the market maker matches up 200 buyers to 200 sellers......so in the end we are left with 600 extra sellers......we see this data in bid ask hits and delta indicator....question is .......there are 800 on bid and 200 on ask.........the big question is .......who is the buyer for the extra 600 sellers on that bar.......

so what's the point.......it's alot easier than you are making it. ...there's a never ending cycle of events that are continually taking place...it is easily seen on a one minute chart....you can even trade it low risk with out the bid ask delta...but it sure helps you figure out who the buyer is for those extra 600 sellers..

I just did a video going over the Market Profile, COT report (last week's), and where I think ES is headed (slightly lower around 1128.50). I got 10 pts on ES yesterday but I'm not happy about it, because I could have made a lot more if it weren't for some key psychological issues that are holding me back. I talk about that in the video so check out the video and the blog post if you're interested. I bet I'm not the only one.




Today I put the ideas into practice and got 20 ticks on the Bund (200 Euros). Not as much as previous days however I kept my risk really small. A long time ago I wrote about using the ladder to get a 4 tick stop. For some reason I put that idea aside, I guess on Crude 4-6 ticks is not easy to do. But on ES & the Bund I think it's doable. A small stop is absolutely critical to reach my goal of trading 100 contracts on ES.
