The change was only on equity futures (like ES, YM, NQ, etc), not commodities, forex or treasuries

Yes, I've tried them. Gomi has several indicators based on Delta Volume.
I'm a volume nut so I've tried all of his.
I've even customized some of them to the way I like them.

The most significant thing in his indicators (IMO) is the ability to record and save the data. Unlike most 'live only' indicators, it can use recorded data to show price action / volume during replay or static viewing.

The only problem I see with Delta Volume is that many times it does not mean anything.
(Or at least it does not mean anything to me.)
I think it could be valuable in some cases but it seems like more information or a confirming indicator is necessary.

But that is JMO and what the heck do I know.

I think MML can be helpful, but I am not currently using it.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

MML very helpful to look for overall picture of price movement. It better perform at bigger time frames, like, 15, 30 and 60 Min. charts.

This is just my opinion but the only advantage I see in using mathematical calculations to determine S/R levels in advance is for automated strategies. If you're doing things manually then why not just mark off horizontal lines on the S/R pivots?

I do not believe on automated strategies. I know that nothing is better than human brain. It is quick and more reliable with continuous change conditions during live run of markets. As all markets run by humans. So Fib. is best tool to judge their behaviour/physiocology. I try to calculate all possible support and resistance levels mannullay by using Fib retracement, Fib extensions and Elliotwave movements once I find a good level with these tools, then this level gets more strength if supported by some mathematical levels like MML, IB Range,Sq9, and further confirmation about trade setups come from VPA and Price behaviour. Most of my trade setups are based on retest of those levels. This provides me Low risk Trade opertunities.
