Main factor which separates market profile from other classical TA is the time factor and MP charts are usually constructed on TIME AND PRICE,Lets see what is price and time with relation to market ,

When market opens @ 9.15, with in first 30 mins we see and move there after a pause and at last a surge or plunge at flag end of the day (or)

We have a second scenario where market moves in the opening section and whole day it remains in that range…

This time factor is main for short term players (intraday) and not much important for longer time frame traders (now on words Other time frame traders(OTF) - swing and positional traders) why ?? since there position is more depended on price where as day traders are dependent on both TIME as well as PRICE

As this time factor advantage is there for large player they are the deciding factor and day traders has to follow them for gains

Market profile terminology calls this time and price as TPO (TIME PRICE OPPORTUNITY)

Developing Point of Control(DPOC): It is the Point Of Control which is forming for the current day of trading i.e POC forming in the current section of 5th AUG is DPOC and 4th Aug is POC

**Below is the Small setup for Intraday trading based on DP concept of POC**

Step 1 : Note down the POC of Previous day (in 30min HTF)

Step 2 : Note down the High and Low of Previous day

Step 3 :Mark them on the current chart as DP (Decision points) and trade them with simple price action

Step 1 : Note down the POC of Previous day (in 30min HTF)

Step 2 : Note down the High and Low of Previous day

Step 3 :Mark them on the current chart as DP (Decision points) and trade them with simple price action

4th Aug NF FUT basing on POC,PDH,PDL of 3rd Aug

Morning candle Opened between the previous day high and low and pierced the POC basing on this conclusion:

PDL and PDH will act as support and resistance and POC can be used as trade anchor for the day

Hope i have made members understand the basic concepts ,please do post your queries if any..

i'm not good in teaching just presenting my understanding in best possible way

Just posting the image of simple setup discussed in post #25
