Key Elements of TPO Profile Chart

Point of Control (POC) — price level of the greatest market activity or trading volume. At this level, the price spent most time over the profile range.

Value Area — price range in which approximately 68% - 70% of the market activity or trading volume took place.

Singles or single prints of the profile are placed in the middle of a profile structure, not at the upper or lower edge. They occur on impulse movements and are used as support/resistance zones, which the price can test in the near future. The singles line indicates where the singles begin to form (in cases when there are several single prints).

TPO letters — basic element of the TPO chart, where each letter corresponds to a specific time ("Build From").
