Time "Variance" Profile or Time Variable Profile?

If you're looking for the latest work of J Peter Steidlmayer I've found little, very little, but I'm sure it's proprietary.

Is this what we're talking about? I'm not sure.

Guess this is it. I like the idea. Quote from Robocod's blog:

Variable time Market Profiles

Having listened to some webinars by Peter Steidlmayer, I decided to implement his "variable time profile" idea. Actually, variable profiles were on my "TO-DO" list anyway, but I hadn't worked out a good way to do it. The system he describes in the video was simply to start a new profile when the price broke the range of the last 9 bars, of a profile which is at least 12 bars old (although these parameters are changeable of course).

It is very simple algorithm (much simpler than I was thinking of), but seems to work remarkably well.

Here it is on 1 hour chart. It does a reasonable job of splitting the price action into distinct profiles, such as 'b', 'P', 'D' and 'B' profiles.

That's right. Time Variable Profile. I think Peter is trying to get the word out from watching his videos. I have read that blog and it sounds interesting. Here is more to read for those interested:

I don't remember how many posts before you can officially share links, but I appreciate the work-around you provided :-)

You might also find the following link useful (see below), which I had blogged about previously. It is an idea called the "Run-Pause Profile" - the idea is to split the price action into congestion (pause) and non-congestion (run) sections. It is similar idea to Peter's I guess.

Peter also talks somewhere (I forget which of his papers) about IPM (Initial Price Moves), which is the initial breakout from a balance region, when the breakout move starts to form balance then it results in a 'P' or 'b' profiles. By manually splitting the profile at he IPM you can split your chart into a series of balance / non-balance areas. Of course, these are also variable-time profiles since they do not start/end at set times, but rather they follow the price.

(Can't post link yet, as I do not have enough posts - but do a google search for "CISCO futures Run Pause Profile"

I think this is the video related to robocod's blog entry about TVP:

esignal.adobeconnect /_a22096063/p8mwsqxgqt3/?launcher=false&fcsContent=true&pbMode=normal

It all started with me wanting to find out more info about Peter's Volume Strips, which lead to the above video about TVP.

Peter's new concept has also been discussed a lot here in the main Profile thread:

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
