When the market profileA way of reading the market that recognizes either time spent or volume traded at a particular price level. A market profile can be either made up of “TPO’s” (time price opportunities), or volume. TPO’s measure how much time was spent at a particular price, while volume-based market profiles measure how much volume traded at a particular price. Generally, market profile is used in the trading of futures, especially the /ES. ShadowTrader utilizes volume based profiles. begins to build out or develop in a certain area, it is said that the market is accepting those prices. This can be measured either in time spent or amount of volume that is transacted. It is generally understood that ShadowTrader defines acceptance as more of a time dynamic than a volume one. A good rule of thumb is to look for at least two TPO(MP) Stands for “Time Price Opportunity”. It is the smallest unit of measure displayed any market profile graphic, denoted by a single letter. Each TPO represents a point of time where the market being charted trades at a specific price. A single TPO is printed on the chart every time that a certain price is touched during any time period. Typically, the periods are set to 30 minutes. Therefore, every different letter that you see in the market profile distribution denotes a different 30 minute period. periods to print in the accepted area. The acceptance confirms that a significant amount of market participants are transacting at those levels.
Acceptance is the opposite of rejectionPrices are rejected when they move away from a key area quickly in the market profile. For example, let's say that futures open below the value area and start to rise towards it. Upon breaching the low of the value area, they rise just a couple ticks higher and then fall quickly back out of the value area. That's rejection. Rejection is often noted when prices move into "make or break" areas such as an ONH or ONL or prior day's RTH high or low from outside of those areas.
