How to trade using Value Areas and POC?

OANDA:SPX500USD   S&P 500 Index
A few key concepts when using Market Profile in your trading:

1) Point of Control (POC) acts as price magnets, as they represent the price level where most time was spent during a trading day. Price tends to gravitate towards them.

2) Naked (Not visited) POC acts as stronger magnets than visited POCs.

3) When price enters / breaks into a Value Area, which represents a range of "fair value", price tends to visit the other end of the Value Area. For example above, the price breaks up from the Value Area Low before end of day yesterday, hit the Value Area High this morning.

You definitely won't find these key levels and ranges with traditional support and resistance lines drawing methods. Using Market Profile will give you the edge to become a better trader.
