The Footprint® Profile will clearly show which prices are experiencing more volume through the shape of the bar and show who is being more aggressive by using color at each price. The color is associated with the delta (net buying/selling) at each price.

Understand where high and low volume is occurring and if the aggressive buyers or aggressive sellers are in control. Tracks volume with price to produce a multi-dimensional display for quicker identification of changes in the underlying market.

Spot Pivot Points With Greater Accuracy – The primary characteristic of the Footprint® is to provide greater detail of underlying market dynamics.

View Footprint® Profiles in any time frame you choose. Short or long term.

Gain Confidence – By knowing where a majority of volume is trading within the bar, it is clear where other traders are finding value and executing trades.

Get On The Correct Side Of The Market – Volume is crucial in determining price strength at every price level, but especially at potential support & resistance and other turning points in the market. This chart will provide the best possible way of gauging these points in a short term time frame.

When the markets are noisy and range bound, this chart will reflect it by having normally distributed bars.

Add a Volume Breakdown Indicator to the bottom of the chart to plot delta and keep pulse of the underlying strength of each bar. This is a great method for observing market psychology in real time!

Each Footprint combines price, volume and delta to act as a thermometer of price strength and then alerting through color and shape.

BENEFITS Track Order Flow – Combining price with total volume and bid / ask volume creates unprecedented accuracy for short term price rotations Multiple Chart Types – Time, tick count, volume bars, range bars, change bars, tick reversal (point & figure) are all available Execute with Greater Precision – Time your entries & exits with much greater precision

Tracks volume with price to produce a multi-dimensional display Gain Confidence – Follow and better understand order flow to the bid and ask Each Footprint combines price and volume to act as a thermometer of price strength and then alerting through color Filters The Noise – See Inside the price bar for clues to whether price is strengthening or weakening

Vertical Volume Distribution With Delta – Allow volume and directional order flow to provide clues to price direction Tracks volume with price to produce a multi-dimensional display for better interpretation of underlying market dynamics Momentum Driven Market – Momentum is a direct result of price activity, which leads to creation of volume
