Market Profile (Auction Market Theory) Chart

I thought that I would start a Market Profile of the FTSE and share it with the rest of the gang - at least for a while. You're probably going to rubbish it so I'll just put it up for the people who may use it.

For those of you not familiar the letter stand for half hour movements of the FTSE. The black line is the open balance (first hour's trade) the yellow line is the value area and the purple is the actual value. The red and green boxes show the open and close. The chart is from monday and the left chart shows accumulation.

The point

Tubbs started this thread the chart identifies 'Value' in the market place over a number of days the purple box shows the value point - which coincides with the price at which most time was spent in the day. This value in the market is hidden without such a chart and I therefore thought it might be useful to some people. As you can see the market stalled on the downside on tuesday and wednesday - which may have pointed to a move up in value.

In effect the best use of the chart is to identify the point which the market will pivot around. I hope this answers your questions. For further info look on the net at www.cisco-futures.com

trading it

Tubbs started this thread well as far as I can tell the ol' trading of it can be done how you like - it merely gives a tendency of the current market condition - so - if it's breakouts you want look to trade the break of yesterdays profile (the price that is used is the last price where two or more letters appear so 4398 yesterday). Since we've already have that you might have traded it. I prefer to take things a little more safe and trade longer term i.e. if value is at 4385 then buy as low as it will go. You know you've got a bargain. I'm really still trying to find a feel for the data myself - that's why I posted it on the forum - for a bit of feedbck. Of course a daytrader could identify value and trade it in the day. Todays chart looks like this so far BELOW - the top side is not developed and therefore will be at some point today.

software

Tubbs started this thread mmillar - I'm using good ol excel - with a few cell formulas added. So I have to look an intraday chart and put the initial letters in for the day. This then creates the charts for the week and month. The calculations of value etc are all done myself. I have no intraday feed and so I do it the hard way - By the way is the weather nice where you are?

You do it all by hand???

Blimey.


The only person I know who seems to use MP on a regular basis is www.21stcenturyfutures.com. I just use the Value Area as another factor to determine whether we are bullish or bearish for the day.
