The current version of Auction Profile is available only as a plug-in tool for the Ensign charting platform.

Auction Profile costs $395 for a permanent license tied to one Ensign account. The cost includes all updates for 12 months.

I offer a 30-day free trial so that you can test for yourself whether Auction Profile might be a good tool for use in your trading.

If you wish to take advantage of the trial – or would like to see a demo first – please send me an email using the Contact Form. Please include your Ensign NID in the body of the email (see below for instructions) for trials and purchases.

How to find your Ensign NID

First download Ensign from Ensign provides a 7-day free trial, after which it costs $49.95 a month. It works with a number of datafeeds and can use multiple feeds simultaneously. If you do not have IQFeed or eSignal, Ensign works with a number of broker feeds and provides free backfill with DTN Market Access. Ensign also includes a free Forex feed from FXCM, which can run alongside your other feed(s). If your broker feed is not supported, you can also take the feed from NinjaTrader using the script provided by ensign.

When you have installed Ensign and got it working with your datafeed, take a couple of hours to familiarize yourself with the platform – there are some helpful videos and help on the Ensign website that will answer most of your questions. Also, Ensign operates a Support chatroom that can be accessed from its main toolbar.


If you have problems, enter the chat room. The support staff may use the integrated TeamViewer software to help resolve your issues.

Once you have Ensign up and running, follow these steps:

Select the Setup tab from the main toolbar and select System:


Select the Security tab:


Make a note of the NID, an example of which is circled above.

Send  an email using the Contact Form including your Ensign NID.

You will receive an email with an installation guide (pdf) and your product license. Please allow 48 business hours for processing, although it will probably be done on the same day.

Your trial license will expire after 30 days.
