Volume Profile

What is Volume Profile?

Volume Profile is an advanced charting study that displays trading activity over a specified time period at specified price levels. The Volume Profile indicator is used in stocks and futures markets. It is a volume-based indicator that identifies six key value areas that are used by major trading firms to trade the markets. The indicator identifies six levels which are the Point of Control or POC, Value Area High and Value Area Low, or VAH and VAL as they appear on the chart. And the High, Low, and Mid Range areas.

Volume Profile

Volume Profile

  • Volume Profile calculates the total volume for the session at each price level and will give you market generated information about what price and range of prices are the most traded.
  • Value Area (VA): This is the range of prices where 70% of the volume is traded
  • Value Area High (VAH): This is the highest price within the Value Area
  • Value Area Low ( VAL): This is the lowest price within the Value Area
  • Point of Control (POC): This is the most trade price with the most volume of the session
  • Session High, Low, and Mid Levels: All come into play each day


The indicator plots all those areas in real-time and does not lag, and plots them on the chart. The colors of the lines can be customized to your liking. It can be used on any chart type, including Renko, Range, Volume, etc. The POC line or Point of Control is like a magnet for price action as this is the area where the most volume is traded.

Point of Control

We were trading Crude Oil and got long on a breakout of the POC Line. Price moves higher into the Value Area High and MID line, and we look to exit, and we moved our stop to the Value Area High line. These levels come into play daily, are precise and accurate, and move based on the price movement, so there is no lag.

The Point of Control line is the major support level for the day.

Volume Profile

As you can see on the chart, we traded the ES, and our Volume Profile indicator labels all the key support levels. Now, these levels are all used by the major trading firms.

The POC line or point of control is the last line of support we got short. Our target is the Value Area Low, as that is the next support level. Our trade met our target with a significant gain.

Point of Control

Volume Profile Point of Control in this trade in the ES sells off to the Value Area Low or the green line. Price moves up off that, and the yellow line is the POC line; this is an area where all institutional trading firms trade long above or short below it.

This entry would be made at the POC Line, with the target being the high red line of the Value Area.

The software comes with manuals and videos to show you how to trade with it and have trades like these. These patterns repeat each day, and once you learn them, you will be in control of your trades and see the price move over these levels quickly. As the price moves around these major levels all day and you will be in more control of your trades, knowing where the major support and reversal areas are.

POC Short

Volume Profile indicator here the price broke below the  POC line and solved off in the ES and NQ charts below. You target the next support level.  Your target would be the VWAP line, and the price went right to it on both charts for a nice trade. The lines on the left side of the chart are volume, and they can be turned on or off. This indicator works on all futures or emini futures, and you can trade with it all day.

Value Area 5

Value Area

Using the Volume Profile indicator, the price ran above the VAH line. Price then sells off to the POC line, which is the last line of support. Below the line, we get short with an ATM Strategy three contracts, and our first profit goal is just about hit, and we made a reasonable profit. Price continued to fall, and our targets were hit on Crude Oil.

This indicator is available for NinjaTrader 8, and the indicator can be used with any other bar type, but we prefer to use minute charts as they work best.

Point of Control

This is a chart of the ES with the Volume Profile on it. At the open of the market, the price tried to move higher over the POC line but failed. So we sold short and our target was just below the VAL line, price sold off, and hit our targets for a significant gain.

Now, this indicator does not lag, moves with the price action so you can clearly see the setups and we end up with a successful winner. Institutions and major trading firms will be long the POC line, and short below it. Hence, learn how to trade with them and be on the right side of the markets.
