Putting it all together with a trading plan

Volume Profile has become a prominent trading methodology over the past several years, surpassing its predecessor, the Market Profile, in both popularity and logic. The basis of VP is to identify statistical distributions of volume in order to pinpoint trading opportunities and targets within a few ticks of key support and resistance levels. Volume Profile is a natural fit with Order Flow trading, and as with any other development, OFA has taken it to the next level.

Learn to Read the Market and Trade Effectively

Not only have we built a better mousetrap, we’ve designed a comprehensive training course to teach traders precisely how to integrate Volume Profile with the powerful analysis OFA is already famous for.

Learning how to trade in today’s markets can be a very daunting and frustrating task. There are so many options of instruments and derivatives to choose from and each has an abundance of “systems” and “methods” teaching “secret ways” of trading.

The reality is that the market is simply an auction with buyers and sellers actively pushing price higher and lower. There is NO secret to trading. Trading has always been about understanding the convictions, strengths and weaknesses of the “active” buyers and sellers and trading with those that are moving price. When you understand what the other players are trying to do, you can effectively trade with them.

The OFA Volume Profile Analysis (OFA/VPA) tool and course are designed to provide you with a complete view of a market’s auction, to help you identify and understand a market’s structure, risk areas, and trade opportunities. The course will provide you with a full understanding of the volume profile and teach you how to:

Build and follow effective and objective trade plans that accommodate the auction moving higher, moving lower, or remaining in balance in a given day.
Understand and identify when change is happening in a market and take advantage of it.
Incorporate the OFA Framework, Volume Cluster Analysis, and Momentum Analysis to more effectively manage risk and hold for profits.
More successfully identify where, when, and why fade and trend opportunities exist.
Better identify and hold for likely targets.
Incorporate order flow analysis into your decisions for healthier risk management and objectivity.
Utilize the OFA tools across all of the instruments that you trade.

Discover What Makes the Market Tick

A retail trader’s greatest obstacle in a liquid market is the speed at which direction can change when large blocks of orders come into the market. The order flow is the real-time record of trade volume that defines short-term directional control. All market movement is subject to the relationship between the supply of the market depth and the demand of orders being executed at each price level. By classifying and analyzing the exchange of real-lime volume flowing into the market, a trader can instantly identify quantif able patterns of support and resistance and capitalize on market reversals without the lag of indicator-based technical analysis. In short, for successful trade execution all you need is to Know the Flow.
