Hey Telly, Big Mikes VolumeGraph is a good indicator, so is the volume splitter from this link Volume Splitter
personally I have a Time and sales that filters 250 contracts or greater and one for all values.

I just took a screenshot of my color scheme, there aren't many block orders coming in at 9:30pm but if there was i would see them here and in another box.

edit 12mest ok look at it now. I basically just pull this up real quick and see if there are more red numbers or green numbers before i take a trade. nothing fancy about that, its actually really crude !

I'm just trying to make a few bucks everyday

I spent the day playing around with settings, trying to develop a decent scalping strategy based on some of the HolyGrail indicators. (Getting ready (mentally) for surgery next Wed. Too unfocused to trade). Glad you had a good day!

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

Congrats ntsst3 on your trading. That's fantasic. I've configured the charts but my indicators are slightly off from your chart. By the way, nice blog.

Good luck TheWizard with your surgery.

Go Steelers!!!
