DAX-Parameters for Market Profile Calculator


I trade the DAX-Future and serching desperately the web to find Value Areas for the DAX, but unfortunately without success.
I use NinjaTrader and found there an indicator to calcilate Value Areas but it isn`t accurate when I compare it with the Values here for the YM. There is an HUGE difference!
Therefore I like to use the Market Profile Calculator, but have no idea which DAX-Data I have to put in the section:
Enter Raw High/Low data here

Please can somebody explain exactly which data I have to use to become proper results? I HOPE anyone can help me!

Abde
I did some research and found that the DAX future trades from 8:50 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. CET (Central European Time). I believe that puts Frankfurt 6 hours ahead of New York so that would be from 2:50am to 2pm EST. (The reason that I had to convert the times is because my charts and computers run on US Eastern Time.)

The data that I found for the DAX from yesterday 1/14/2010 was a bit more extensive. I've copied the time, high, low, and volume and pasted it here:


2:00 6016.5 6005.5 1,818
2:30 6012.5 6005.5 957
3:00 6011.0 5997.0 7,360
3:30 6008.0 5992.0 5,659
4:00 6009.5 5993.5 4,355
4:30 6008.0 5997.5 3,117
5:00 6003.0 5994.5 2,597
5:30 6006.5 5999.0 2,672
6:00 6003.5 5980.0 6,557
6:30 5995.5 5984.0 2,361
7:00 6003.5 5993.0 3,529
7:30 6002.0 5987.5 3,247
8:00 6009.5 5999.0 6,967
8:30 6002.0 5955.0 15,869
9:00 5977.5 5956.0 6,781
9:30 5995.0 5974.0 10,646
10:00 6012.5 5986.5 11,036
10:30 6007.5 5987.0 7,839
11:00 5995.5 5980.0 9,591
11:30 5999.5 5990.0 4,626
12:00 6003.5 5993.0 2,014
12:30 6004.5 5996.0 1,082
13:00 6000.0 5996.0 452
13:30 6004.5 5998.5 1,027
14:00 6004.0 5998.5 496
14:30 6005.0 6000.0 534
15:00 6006.5 6001.0 1,114
15:30 6010.5 6000.5 1,365
16:00 6013.0 6008.5 105


So to generate the profile I took the highs and lows from that data above:


6016.5 6005.5
6012.5 6005.5
6011.0 5997.0
6008.0 5992.0
6009.5 5993.5
6008.0 5997.5
6003.0 5994.5
6006.5 5999.0
6003.5 5980.0
5995.5 5984.0
6003.5 5993.0
6002.0 5987.5
6009.5 5999.0
6002.0 5955.0
5977.5 5956.0
5995.0 5974.0
6012.5 5986.5
6007.5 5987.0
5995.5 5980.0
5999.5 5990.0
6003.5 5993.0
6004.5 5996.0
6000.0 5996.0
6004.5 5998.5
6004.0 5998.5
6005.0 6000.0
6006.5 6001.0
6010.5 6000.5
6013.0 6008.5


and copy/pasted them into the Market Profile Calculator. I changed the tick size to 0.5 and the decimal places to 1. (You don't need to change the starting letter unless you want to. I find it easier to always leave the starting letter at D because I'm used to the first bracket being D so it's easier for me to read the profile that way.) Then I clicked the generate button. This produced the following profile:

I got it from my charting platform: eSignal
Ok. I tried my very best, but unfortunatly ig-markts doesn´t serve the volume. In so far i cannot calculate VAH, VAL and POC.

Cant´t you bee so kind and calculate it for DAX as you do for ES and DJ?

Regards,

Rea
