I tried it when they started. My opinion is that all these services that sell key levels are way over priced. The max i would pay would be 20$/month for all futures contracts not just one. But here we are talking big money for what ? imprecise levels. Samething with pivotfarm or jsservices .

I get much accurate levels by using Market Profile and the indicator is free.

Thank you Trend is your Friend,
Is the dValue Indicator available for NT7?
Also, Where would I be able to find the indicator?

For NT7 i found this version: clickme
For NT65, i found this version: clickme

You also have this version (elite restricted) that is based on Gomi's framework: clickme
Another version to calculate the developing value area: clickme

As i am still using NT65 as my main platform i have included the only version of dValueArea i use (see attached file). I don't remember where i got it. The name of the file is dValueAreaRtVa.zip where RtVa stands for "Real Time Value area". But i don't use this feature.

P.S. BigMike's link parser has a bug so most probably you'll get an error when you click some of my links. The link parser insert two space chars before the equal sign in "...&linkId=???" at the end of the link. My solution, when you see the error message, edit the link in the address field of your browser by removing the spaces before the equal sign and press RETURN.

I signed for one month on Friday to try it out , for 6E only, I think the zones are good..

The criteria to jump to a trade when price is aproaching a zone is to wait until price is about in the middle of the zone , and the bar closes in your direction , in my case, a 4 range bar.. . . and this is aggressive way of doing this.. .

Hi Biggz,

As good as these charts may look to you, Don't forget to test in sim in a live market before using real money.

Better safe that sorry. All that money and potential profit will still be there next week.

I was searching for reviews on them myself. I've been a customer of theirs for a while now... I'm not sure what the 'right' price is for these types of services. For me, the current price is 'worth' it because I believe I make more money trading with these S&R zones than without them... so the 100 bucks or whatever is easily covered by trading profits. Haven't tried the turning point system yet, I just subscribe to the ES zones.

Because you pay for them you will tend to give them some importance but you can get more accuracy if you make a habit to find key levels by yourself. Use what FatTails has provided so far in the download section and you'll get much more accuracy and gain $100/Mo by so doing. Also, Mirus provides a free service where you can get the most obvious and significant key levels for different instruments :

If anybody has tried the the turning point system, how does it compare to the volume stop indicator with the S/R zones?

I use their ES S&R zones and have found them very useful in combination with prior day Market Profiles and Cummulative Delta techniques. They are not definitive or pretend to be but they provide an extra dimension which I personally have found useful and therefore worth the subscription. HTH

I've been doing quite well with the ToTheTick zones. Works nicely with my own setup once you get the hang of it. Here's a shot of the TF yesterday. I'm using a 3 minute chart for short term trend and a 200 volume bar chart for trade entry. I'm also watching a Renko chart per his recommendation, but I think I like my 200 volume better.

Does someone use their email service? It seems they provide free daily data in form of a spreadsheet.

Can someone give me an advice.
