DVA after RE


max asks this question in the Due Diligence thread:

Okay, here is a setup that I believe works but I have not been able to back test it (yet) to confirm that it works more than it fails nor have I been able to test what type of stops or targets to use on it.

The entry signal is as follows and these are Market Profile concepts.
1. Wait for Range Extension. This will show you the direction in which you are going to trade. (if RE is on the up side then you will be taking a long.)
2. Place a limit order to go long at the Developing Value Area Low if RE is on the upside and at the DVAH if RE is on the downside.
3. The limit will need to be moved if the relevant DVA moves before the limit is hit which is highly likely.

I'd like to know the answer to this question also if anyone trades it and do you find the POC or high volume area becomes a good target? Thanks

Bruce & Elite: Apologies for missing this question. In the past I have used a 2 point stop on the ES for this although I don't know if that is optimal.

Sorry, I misunderstood. I thought this thread was replying to Max's inquiry about sharing techinques. No problem, again sorry.

No worries. Thanks for posting the setup. I have asked you some questions about it in the other thread.
Hi DT,

Just for clarity... where you entering on a limit order at the Developing Value area high and risking two points from there in the example of a short trade or would you ideally wait for the market to roll back over down and enter and then risk your two points..?

Just curious what you thought was a better approach too!

Thanks

I put in the first limit order at the developing Value Area or just outside it - i.e. 1 tick better. But because the developing Value Area is sometimes changing while you are waiting for a fill I will move it appropriately. If, however, I have a limit order at the DVA and the DVA moves down by 1 tick (waiting for a short fill) then I will often leave the order in place because I don't want to lose my place in the queue. If it jumps by 3 ticks or more I'll move it.
ah cool..that makes sense...thanks DT
