Blahtech Market Profile

Market Profile defines a number of day types that can help the trader to determine market behaviour. A key feature is the Value Area, representing the range of price action where 70% of trading took place. Understanding the Value Area can give traders valuable insight into market direction and establish the higher odds trade. It is an excellent addition to any system you may be using.

Blahtech Limited presents their Market Profile indicator for the MetaTrader community. Inspired by Jim Dalton’s book “Mind Over Markets”, this indicator is designed to suit the needs of all profile traders. It delivers functionality usually only available on futures platforms and adds innovations like auto switching of focus and the backtest mode.

Extremely detailed and profession tool for Volume Profile trading.

Thank you

Three stars due to lack of sufficient material explaining the purpose of each setting and how to use it. When you are selling a high-end indicator such as this with so many settings, you should at least provide sufficient documentation (with images) explaining how to use each setting and what its purpose is. You have provided some material, but for the most part, you have left it up to the user to figure out how to use the indicator. That's not a professional way to do business.

Waste of money! Most of the times doesn't show anything, no profile at all. If it shows any profile it is with barely any detail. Highly overrated! Not recommended for purchase.

I bought this indicator together with the Daily Range indicator over a month ago so that I can give an honest review. I have to say....just as the Daily Range Indicator, Market Profile is amazing. I have this indicator currently running on 15 charts at the same time on an older PC and I have not once experienced a slowdown or freezing of MT4. The features in this indicator are truly amazing, which makes my life so much easier. Thank you Blahtech :-)

After reading the logic and rules of Market Profile, I finally bit the bullet and bought the indicator. What a fine piece of art! The indicator (just like Supply and Demand) does not consume a lot of computer resources (no slowing down MT4). With Market Profile I can see where price is likely to reverse, which often turns into a sustained trend. I trade very short term but put Market Profile on M15 for 3 major sessions. Support by James carter is excellent. Highly recommended. Here is my chart setup. As you can see, I use QPoints from SupplyDemand in M5 and also harmonic patterns https://www.screencast.com/t/KDUKnm0K

I can't compliment Blahtech limited and Deeyana enough, they have made excellent work providing these high quality indicators for sale.

simply the best market profile I have seen for Mt4, they are professional indicators for people who want the best tools available,

I bought the market profile and they even customized it for me at no extra cost, that is a great company and great people. the indicators cost a bit more than others out there, but the quality and features they provide makes no comparison on the Mt4 market, and easily makes up for the price, totally worth it if you want the best tools! recommended

My trading strategy is based on Supply Demand and Market Profile. In order to get solid MP indicator, I had to rent sierrachart package5, even though I am trading from MT4, as there was no MP indicator available for MT4 platform I would trust to. This indicator does exactly what I need: it shows value areas and POC of any desired trading session (it was mandatory for me) and it shows me current (and yesterday´s) structure of market profile. On top of that, it has one cool feature i havent seen anywhere else – backtest mode. It is easy to customize and it does not slow down my platform. Totally worth the money.
