WindoTraderBLUE is a Market Profile-based, Volume Analytics-driven, trading software application.

WindoTraderBLUE’s highly configurable displays support traders in personalizing charts and displays in ways that enhance their individual trading methodology and style.

WindoTraderBLUE supports traders in identifying and understanding:

  • Trending vs consolidating markets
  • The market’s probability for continuation or change

WindoTraderBLUE is different in many ways. For example:

  • The foundational structure of WindoTraderBLUE was developed on the principles and concepts of the CME/CBOT Market Profile.
  • We believe WindoTraderBLUE is fundamentally different than other applications at its core. Once understood, its design, concept and structure facilitate a user’s ability to build custom displays in a way that best provides the information they require. WindoTraderBLUE, to the best of our knowledge, is the only trading-software application foundationally based on the principles and concepts of the Market Profile, and is not an add-on or option that is turned on if the subscriber wants Market Profile charts.

WindoTraderBLUE is capable of:

  • Adopting and conforming to the trader’s unique characteristics and requirements versus forcing traders to adapt to a software program with predetermined parameters.
  • Displaying charts driven by one or many datasets during the same trading session.
  • Displaying a single chart with one or many different time boundaries at the same time, such as day, night, and weekly session, all within the same chart. Or, it could be one for Asia, one for Europe, and one for the United States. etc.
  • Displaying a single chart with one or many duplicates or different session-display configurations such as one or many Market Profiles, Volume Profiles, Candlesticks, OHLC Bars, Histograms, etc.
  • Supporting users to build their ideal display according to visual preferences, scale, and quantity of components.

And much more…

"There is no substitute for WindoTraderBLUE for anyone using market profile. As a full-time equities trader, I was always looking for a software platform that displays market profile and would present the data as I want to see it on the screen. I was first exposed to market profile in 1997 when I found Jim Dalton's book "Mind Over Markets." I knew then that this was the only way to "corral" the apparent randomness of the market. I have seen many attempts, but until I found WindoTraderBLUE, could never find a true display with everything that the Market Profile offers, and the ability to create my chart to show exactly what I want to see. WindoTraderBLUE gives me market profile data in any format I can imagine and what works for my trading time frame, trading technique and trading culture. As long as I have been exposed to market profile, WindoTraderBLUE has made it so much easier for me to interpret and every day it helps me make good trading decisions. In addition, WindoTraderBLUE not only provides great software, they also support the most important component of a successful trader -- the ability for us as traders to identify who we are and how we react to various trading scenarios. The cost of the software for me is immaterial. The combination of the software with the bonus of trader mentality training priceless!"
