Calculating YM Market Profile Numbers

Good Morning,

Since the emini Dow Market Profile numbers are no longer being posted here, or at least they have not been now for the past couple days, I was wondering if anyone could confirm the numbers I calculated manually from the formula provided here on the site. I came up with VAH of 7892, POC of 7862 and VAL of 7826, based on yesterdays data, Mon, April 6th, 2009. Does this sound right to those of you who have software that automatically calculates these things? Thank you.

Here is how I calculate YM value areas from the DJIA value areas provided by DayTrading:

1. Open a chart of DJIA and YM. I used 5 minute.
2. Look at where the value areas onthe DJIA are. For example, for yesterday's chart, 4/7/09, POC 7825 on DJIA is at the high of 12:05 central time, which is 7775 on YM.
3. Do this for all other value areas and you should have a fairly accurate value areas for YM.
