for FuturesTrader71 Followers
and Investor/RT Users
The webinar videos below have now been
largely superseded by the more recent one above. However, they
will be left online as they do provide some valuable information.
Nonetheless, defer to the video above.
Getting Started Videoo - This video will
walk you through getting started with Investor/RT, from choosing a data
feed, to ordering and activating your license, to starting the data feed and
setting up charts.
My profile is now not lining up with what I'm seeing from others
(FuturesTrader71). How can I resolve this?
How do I add micro-composite profiles to my chart?
Can you explain the text printed above and below the dotted rectangle
around the Profile Indicator? What is the Imbalance Factor (ImF)?
My Profile Indicator is not displaying a volume bar at every price
increment. What could the problem be?
How can I transfer my composite profile from my FT71 composite chart to
my FT71 Intraday chart?
How can I duplicate my FT71 charts for other symbols such as Crude?
I have made installers geared towards futures trades and customized for
5 different feeds (IB, DTN IQFeed, TransAct/Infinity, Zen-Fire and eSignal). These installers can
be found here. These have the
futures symbols and some charts already setup for you, and will save you a
lot of setup time. You MUST send in a signed
CME Agreement before we can activate your
Market Profile charts (the Profile Indicator requires MP activation). Please click here
to do so.
Interactive Brokers, TransAct/Infinity, and Zen-Fire Users
I would strongly suggest that you elect to sign up for the $15/month
DTNMA option, which gives you very complete/robust downloading/backfill
capability. With DTNMA, all your requests for downloads/backfill will
automatically get routed to DTNMA, which gives you more data, quicker
downloads, and complete tick data (not just snapshots). However, if
you elect not to use the DTNMA, you do still have historical backfill
capability from your brokerage feed (although limited). And if you decide at some future point that
backfill is not sufficient for your needs, you can always upgrade to DTNMA
at any time. You can read more about DTNMA here.
