Tool Introduction

The Order Flow Chart visualization allows you to create a full-bodied Footprint out of a simple bar chart in NinjaTrader. The visualization gathers data about the size of realized orders, and based on your selected view, it shows the volume traded at each price at the bid and at ask. Thanks to this visualization, you can “see” the inside of individual price bars down to the level of individual orders. You are able to see which prices are more attractive for traders and where there is lower interest in making trades.

The Order Flow Chart visualization window is divided into three parts, all of which the user can edit. If you wish, you can switch off some components and use the whole window space for Footprint. You can activate a panel on the left side of the window that shows cumulative volume for the whole session, including the division of orders between bid and ask. In the lower part of the window, you can turn on a panel which offers additional information based upon the number of realized orders.

What does it show?

  • Realized buying and selling orders in real time
  • Volume traded at each price
  • Where the appetite and strength to trade lies
  • Simple color illustration of who (buyers or sellers) dominates the market and with what strength
  • The possibility of individual adjustment of supply/demand, Delta, and other info

  • You will find out where the activity takes place in the right moment.
