MarketDelta's Trevor Harnett (CEO) - Ask Me Anything (AMA)

Trevor Harnett, the Founder and CEO of MarketDelta, will be monitoring this thread so that he may answer any questions that you post here relating to MarketDelta products and services.

Please keep in mind that some customer service/technical support issues are best handled through proper channels at MarketDelta.

MarketDelta is a state-of-the-art trading platform that specializes in Footprint charts, Volume Profile, Market Profile, and Order Flow analysis. The platform also has the capability for order-entry through their DOM, called "MarketDelta Trader", which is a static price ladder DOM with automated order management. MarketDelta also has some mobile apps for iPhone and iPad, like their Heat Map tool.

In addition to this thread, I will also be asking Trevor Harnett to stop by on occasion for a casual webinar where he can answer questions via audio while also sharing his screen to visually demonstrate any points as needed. The date/time of those sessions will be announced here in this thread. These sessions will be limited to questions only, there is no prepared presentation. After the session ends, the recording will be posted in this thread.

You can find more on their website:

Feel free to ask any questions below and we'll do our best to get them answered.

The futures.io (formerly BMT) "AMA" (Ask Me Anything) series is by invitation only. It is part of a new program we are launching shortly called "Certified Trustworthy", something that has been months in the making. I will provide all the details of this new program as soon as it is ready for launch.

@MarketDelta, Trevor do you have plans to code for Android? Some of us are not Apple fanbois I like the apps you are offering, but don't own any Apple iOS devices nor do I plan to.

I'd like to know how to create Cummulative $ticks as bars the same way we can plot cummulative delta as delta bars. It would be interesting to run them side by side to possibly see divergences in buying/selling pressure.

Thank you - Volt

You are certainly not the first to ask this but for now our mobile team is focused on iOS only. I am sure Android will be in our future but we are having a lot of fun being creative with iOS for now.

Dear Volt,
If I am mis-interpreting your question email support@MarketDelta.com and please clarify and they will be more than happy to assist further.

If you are referring to the NYSE Cumulative Tick statistic ($TICK), you will not be able to plot it in the same way as Cumulative Delta for a traded symbol because $TICK does not contain the necessary BidxAsk data that the Delta requires.

Make a great day!
Trevor

I'm deciding between Sierra Chart and Market Delta right now.

I'm interested in Volume Profile and Footprint Charts. Both Sierra Chart and Market Delta offer these features, however, there is a huge price difference.

Sierra is $45 per month vs ~$150 per month for Market Delta.

I don't mean to turn this into a comparison thread. As a potential customer I'm just wondering what the advantages are for me to pay over $100 more when both platforms offer the same thing. Are there any specifics differences I should look into that Market Delta offers that Sierra does not? I'm always willing to pay more for better quality tools (in trading I think you can't afford to be cheap in this regard), but I'm not finding a major reason why Footprint or Volume Profile charts would be different between the two.

I'll be using IQFeed as my data provider.


Thanks!

And another one- is it possible to import tick data to MD from NT7 (it creates 3 separate files)?

Can you post a video or screenshots to illustrate this?
