This post has been created to help traders set up Think or Swim Monkey Bars to be similar to Jim Dalton's Market Profiles. A JD member furnished these instructions for fellow members at J Dalton Trading.

Studies you can add:

#Calculates half back in multiple available aggregation periods.

input aggregationPeriod = AggregationPeriod.DAY;

plot HB = hl2(period=aggregationPeriod);



Adds the moving price line to TOS charts: 
#This will only plot during regular trading hours unless you have the charts set to extended hours.
plot priceLine = highestAll(if isNan(close[-1]) and !isNAN(close) then close else double.nan);

Instructions to set up TOS Monkey Bars:

There is a Chart Style called "Monkey Bars" that shows the market profile. Only real difference is that it uses numbers for the periods instead of letters. Its not even close to WindoTrader Blue, but is free..

This is a link to TOS help file.

The workspace replaces all your existing settings with those. This could be an undesired effect.

S&P Morning Report 9-3-2014

9-3 Morning Report Profiles

Overnight inventory is 100% long with another new high established in the overnight market. Counter auctions relative to overnight inventory continue to run in the 65% range.

The two early references are the overnight high at 2011.00 and the 2-day high at 2004.75. Any meaningful correction would start with rejection above the 2-day high.

Gap trading rules are applicable:

If the gap is filled and value cannot at least be similar value to the prior day, odds of a later day move in the direction of the gap are likely.

Remember, if the gap is filled your attention shifts to developing value. Unless value is becoming at least unchanged relative to yesterday’s pit session value, the odds of a later rally are high.
