How to Use Daily Levels

The most common way to use these levels are as trade targets. If a level hasn’t been touched yet within a session, it will appear in color. If the level has already been touched in the session, it will appear gray.

Another way to use these levels is to infer if price is more or less likely to trade beyond a certain point, based on historical probabilities.

Historical Probabilities

Please keep in mind that the probabilities displayed are historical probabilities. Historical probabilities reflect the percent of sessions for which a level has been touched within past sessions. They are a reflection of the past. This may or may not accurately reflect the probability of the level being touched in future sessions.

The Daily Levels indicator plots levels on all products. Historical probabilities (percentages on each level) are initially only available for the most popular e-mini and micro CME futures products. This includes CL, GC, ES, NQ, YM, MGC, MES, MNQ, MYM. For a full list of supported products, click the button above. Historical probabilities are recomputed and updated on a regular basis. Recomputing the levels ensures that recent price action is taken into account. If you would like to see historical probabilities for other products please contact us.

The indicator supports historical probabilities for both the regular trading hours session (beginning at 9:30am ET) and the overnight session (beginning at 6pm ET). You can trade each session with probabilities computed specifically for the respective session type (regular or overnight).

The Details

The Daily Levels indicator works on time-based, tick and range charts. Since the indicator uses onBarClose, it will take 1 minute after the session open for the probabilities to be displayed for the current session. To see the labels for each level, the chart’s “Right Side Margin” property will need to be set to about 80 depending on bar width. Give it a try today, free for 14 days!
