At the time of writing, there are 12 different user reviews, they have given the indicator and overall rating of 4.5 out of 5.
“Three stars due to lack of sufficient material explaining the purpose of each setting and how to use it. When you are selling a high-end indicator such as this with so many settings, you should at least provide sufficient documentation (with images) explaining how to use each setting and what its purpose is. You have provided some material, but for the most part, you have left it up to the user to figure out how to use the indicator. That’s not a professional way to do business.” – A 3-star review.
“Waste of money! Most of the time [it] doesn’t show anything, no profile at all. If it shows any profile it is with barely any detail. Highly overrated! Not recommended for purchase.” – A 1-star review.
“I bought this indicator together with the Daily Range indicator over a month ago so that I can give an honest review. I have to say….just as the Daily Range Indicator, Market Profile is amazing. I have this indicator currently running on 15 charts at the same time on an older PC and I have not once experienced a slowdown or freezing of MT4. The features in this indicator are truly amazing, which makes my life so much easier. Thank you Blahtech 🙂” – A 5-star review.
So there is a range of reviews, however, there are far more 5 out of 5 ratings than any other rating which is a good sign. The creator also seems to be replying to the majority of comments which shows that they are still supporting the indicator. As always, download the free version and send any queries to the developer, this way you can ensure that the indicator is right for you before you make a purchase or rental.
