Q/A: TD’s Flexible Volume Profile

I received a lot of very good questions regarding my new Flexible Volume Profile. I took the most common questions and created a question and answer post, with the most common questions answered in detail below. You will also find many answers to your questions in the video 8-minute video listed below.


How do I get the profile?

In your volume profile and licensing guide, you state that you require the Machine ID. Does this mean it will only work on this machine?

  • Yes, every Machine ID is unique, and the profile will only work on the computer (s) I authorize for you. If you have more then one computer, I will authorize them as well (for free).

What to do if I want to operate on more than one machine?

  • You send me Machine ID of another computer you want to authorize. I will authorize this one as well (for free).

What happens when we replace our computer?

  • When you replace or upgrade your computer, you need to send me the new machine ID so I can authorize your computer again (for free).

If I am no longer a member of your Pro Forex Course, will the profile still work?

  • Yes. The license for the profile is a lifetime license. When you buy the profile, it is yours forever, no matter if you are a still member or not.


I bought the Flexible Volume Profile. What do I do next?

  • Follow steps in those two videos:


Do I need CME futures data for NinjaTrader to accurately pick my levels? My concern here is what additional costs will I need to consider?

  • You don’t need futures data! Even though forex is not a centralized exchange, forex data from a big broker (for example FXCM) is surprisingly accurate, and you can rely on them in your analysis. This is why there is no additional cost. You can get FXCM free data feed here: FXCM free data feed. You can also try futures data and compare. There is a free demo (email bound, time-limited) here: CQG futures – free demo.

How can you rely on FX volume seeing there is no central exchange. Won’t different brokers show different volumes?

  • You are right; different forex brokers show different volumes because the forex market isn’t centralized. Best thing to do is to use big forex broker (for example FXCM). Big brokers usually have quite reliable and accurate volume data. I use FXCM forex data, and I must say that when I compare this data to futures data (CME), it is very close.

I noticed that the FXCM data is a trial limited to 30 days so I am not sure what happens after this period. 

  • You can get an unlimited demo here: Unlimited FXCM data (demo).
  • For some users it doesn’t work and the data trial is limited. Here is a guide how to renew the datafeed for free:

I downloaded NinjaTrader 7 platform, and it opened up without me entering the username and password. I clicked on File and then Connect, but I did not have FXCM as one of the options. So how do I connect to the FXCM data-feed?

  • Go to this page: Unlimited FXCM data (demo) and register there to get the data (free and not time-limited). After that, you will receive your credentials. Then you go to your NinjaTrader platform and click: ToolsAccount Connections and there you can add FXCM data. After that you should be able to connect through it.


Will this indicator work on a standard  MT4 platform?

  • TD’s Flexible Volume Profile works only with NinjaTrader 7. The standard MT4 platform doesn’t have tick volume data (the most precise data).

Can I keep my current broker & MT4 platform?

  • Yes, you can! You only need to do your analysis on NinjaTrader 7. Then you can execute your trades on your  MT4 platform or with any other broker and trading platform you like.

Do I need an additional broker that NinjaTrader recognizes to continue?

  • You don’t need any additional broker. You simply do your analysis with NinjaTrader 7 (for free), and then you execute your trades with your current broker. Just like you are used to.

If you guys have any questions, please shoot me an email to contact@trader-dale.com and I will be glad to help you. I will also answer the new questions I receive in this Q/A section.

If you would like to get my custom made Flexible Volume Profile and to learn to trade with it on a daily basis, the best way to do it is to join me in my private trading course where you will learn & trade with me every day.

Do you have plans to support NinjaTrader 8? Does it work on NinjaTrader 8?

  • Current version works only with NinjaTrader 7, but we are currently developing a brand new Flexible Profile for NinjaTrader 8. Owners of NinjaTrader 7 version will receive the new NinjaTrader 8 version as a free gift.

Happy trading!
