Now that I have been watching MP for awhile I am getting your language a little better. And @greenr's as well. MP provides a reference basis that is daily, helping to give better definition to chaos and/or expectation. Obviously still just watching, not getting anything from it. But allowing the concept and the visual to sink in. The indicator I have used really drags on my resources though. I may be doing something wrong. I did set Calculate on bar Close back to True, and that helped a lot, but it is still a memory hog. Any thoughts?


If your thinking of going down this route Mr Gary....get the Fin-Algo TPO software for $250 and ill provide you with my settings

TPO and [AUTOLINK]Volume Profile[/AUTOLINK] Chart for NinjaTrader

We can push foreward form there

Price is just floating around. Started to feel wrong, or like a hopium situation.


EDIT:




Would have nailed my stop for no reason. The trade had lost it's energy.

My direction was right this morning, my timing was off. I missed the move, had other things to do after I got out.





Kind of bummed about it, sitting here tempted to scalp...

OK, 2 scalps, net +10 on the day. Very disappointing compared to what I was expecting, but it was my choice to enter, to exit, to not re-enter, etc. And, there was not a guaranteed outcome...

Something to explore this weekend.

Morning's target hit...




"not fair" is not accurate. There is no "fair". Every day provides an opportunity, I choose how to meet it. I knew the trend appeared to be down. I knew the major daily trade advice came out with short side preferred. Catching a reversal can take several entries, and I did not have time today to stay at it.
