OK so I just started a trial for a footprint chart through Fin-Alg on Ninjatrader (Zen-Fire feed). Does anyone have any experience with the reliability of Zen-Fire's tick data? I mean I know they're a fast feed execution etc. but how is their tick data? Maybe I'm just too new at footprint charts but at the end of an uptrend as the Market (ES) is reversing the Cum. Delta continues to increase as the Market steadily declines. This seems odd to me.

The consensus on futures.io (formerly BMT) forum is that Zen-Fire is not as reliable as DTN/IQ for volume analysis. Zen is free but you get what you pay for. If you are serious about volume analysis you want the best and unfortunately it's not free but to test a product Zen-Fire is enough. You can have a trial subscription with DTN and see by yourself if it's worth it. Usually people that uses volume will want to use other market internal metric like the $tick which is not avaliable with Zen-Fire but is part of the package if you intend to use a third party data provider. If you want to use Ninja exclusively then you can also subscribe to Kinetick - Streaming real time quotes and historical market data
