Hi, i m new to futures trading, i would like to target 4 points a day scalping the e-mini whether its with one or multiple trades.

I m planning to get Jigsaw and to open an account with AMP futures,i think they ll be providing CQG Data feed.

But i still need some good Footprint chart where i can see cumulative delta by candle, orders by ticks, imbalances etc.

are we able to get a good footprint chart on Jigsaw's Daytradr platform or do i have to get Sierra platform for that?

Also once i get the CQG credentials through amp futures, will i be able to use that in other platforms such as Sierra & also Tradingview?

Your help is appreciated, thanks!

Woah, slow down. That sounds like a lot of things you are trying to accomplish very quickly. Are you a seasoned trader in something other than futures?

NinjaTrader has built in footprint charts.

Continue your research...but I can save you some time....with Cumulative Delta and Day Trading tools...I have a couple of examples...what I currently use...and if you find something that works as well you can inform the rest of us....NT8 life time license has an Order Flow Cumulative Delta indicator...that works well in my opinion...I have also put together some Histograms with it and also added the OBV indicator....something you have to learn how to read...syou can see from my samples how I use it….Im always looking for breakouts with strength....the CCI Histogram is the first signal followed by the SMA histogram and the ADX for strength of move (purple)….but the OBV signals added to that and you can see the Cumulative Delta



in this case Buyers coming in....I don't need to see numbers just Bars....Tells me whats happening...
First example is HistogramPack from Futures.io..
Second is begin of move...notice CCI breakout with OBV rising
Third is end of move ...notice OBV Rising...and Cumulative Delta Bars Rising and SMA Hist breakout added a line at 3.3
Last screen is just a larger screen showing the moves over a period of time...
Hope this helps.....but continue to do research.. still looking for the Holy Grail....LOL...
I put more value on the Delta and OBV... than the price...it tells me what is going to happen...before it happens....
If the SMA stays between the lines its in chop ….stay out of the mkt
The Zones on the Price Chart are Dynamic SR Colored Zones...from NT7...modified to NT8

Welcome to the exciting world of futures.

Yes you will be able to access the free edition of SC (V3). V5 is extra and required if you want to look at footprint charts for example.

Hope that helps!

NinjaTrader has built in footprint charts.

i have 3 years experience daytrading full time crypto almost 7/7 i tried also at some point forex, cfds.. but realized too late that Futures are the best for scalping due to volatility , cheap fees and centralized tick volume data.

Hey thank you for your advices. I already have a sexy layout on tradingview giving me very good zones, beside vwaps & session profile analysis, i also use modified version of OBV, its called Better OBV, try it on tradingview using a 1s renko traditional 0.25 chart for ES1!, it will give you very good levels .

I dont like to chase breakouts due to R:R but i do look at some volume confirmation with fading offers, thats why i would need the best orderflow tools.. i m hesitating between bookmap and jigsaw..
i will definitely keep using Tradingview, for the footprint chart ideally i would like something looking like in this video

( please search the title:"E-Mini SP 500 Execution drill.. Live trades 2/8/19" on youtube as i m not able yet to post links here )

Why did you switch from crypto? Do you trade it at all anymore?
