hi @dom64 thnx for sharing yr vids. I think most of your videos you do not share ES. I am sharing a private vid of last Friday on ES. I myself record stuff. It is part of a full video. I use Jigsaw like crazy....how keep BkMap on for visual Limits on the DOM.
Would be great to hear if you use OF to scalp or for gauging turns in the market. I do keep OF Jigsaw n Bkmap on...but thanks to a mentor I also can see them on my charts.
Will be good to hear how you detect the turns in OF. I see that you use MP for context. However if not using MP....can turns be accurately gauged for short term scalps (2-5pts) as well as 10-20 pts....would like to hear your thoughts using Jigsaw on what indications do you look into.
Hey paps, you're right I don't trade the ES so no videos on it, but OF principles apply to any market/instrument. I use TPO and Volume profile as it offers very good area/levels of where the market is likely to go to, or at least, offers great insight to build different scenarios for the month, week, day, etc (in the video I highlight in the morning a level of 1.3135 where the market could go to and it got there at the end of the session and a little further down). So this gives me valuable insight (obviously the video is long enough as it is so I only show a very summarised version of everything I look at and how I use it). There are other useful order flow elments to look at, and a confluence of a number of them indicates a degree of likelyhood where and how things could develop.
As I mention in the video (I forgive you if you didn't watch it all! ), one could just look a the DOM (be it numerical and/or graphical it is the same thing) and scalp out a few points, which is the best way to operate if you are a scalper, without looking at anything else, but scalping is best with size (in terms of contracts).
The order flow can be seen in various ways, and it does give big clues on short term, medium and longer term. It helps to identify which type of day we are in, and adapt how I trade. Some days are swing days, some days are scalps days, some days are position trading days, but what unfolds in the market is what dictates me how I trade, I don't choose to scalp 1-2 points or 20-30 (which is not a scalp anymore really). Likewise I don't choose where to take profit, where to stop and get out based on arbritrary personal choices based on my own risk profile. I have an overal and daily risk profile, but as long as it stays inside my daily risk level, the market and the order flow tells me what I should do, not the other way round, as it does what it does and what it has to do regardless of personal choices, so it is for us to adapt, and this is what OF helps doing.

i found that course slightly overvalued for my tiny budget because of custom software which is apparently based on fin-alg footprint imho. but i know the basic points of Mike's course and must admit that it's best paid english language course about footprint i ever seen. personally i trade similar way as Mike teaches with some tricks from my previous experiece and even use some free tools which Mike distributes for close groop of his followers. the main advantage of that course is clean systematic approache given step by step in logical sequence. i'm not a newbee in order flow trading so i didn't find useful for me to enroll the full course and buy Mikes custom software but if somebody is looking for the very logical and quite valueable for its price trading approache, that it.
Actually if someone wants to really understand the markets the effects of market and limit orders and does not actually have a way to see this..then tools such as jigsaw do well. But more than the tools they have plenty videos as a starting point.
Search for webinars by @DionysusToast or youtube by Jigsaw Trading.
Am not new myself in order flow but open to new ideas and hence try to see what others follow. Jigsaw vids and webinars are probably great for anyone new trying to dabble with OF. Well just mho...and it may be biased.
