Can anyone help me with a market profile question. If the initial balance is the first 2 half hour periods of the day that would imply an initial balance from 1.00 am to 2.00 am if I was trading brent crude oil. There is so little trading going on at this time that to me it would not make sense to use this. Does anyone have any suggestions of suitable initial balance time frames for 24 hour markets. The brent crude market volume increases noticably from 7.00 am onwards. From 7.00 am to 8.00 am would make a more sensible opening range. I could set my chart to make the initial balance form 1.00 am to 8.00 am. Is this feasible? Any suggestions or advice very welcome.
