Of course.

The main Volume Ladder/Footprint ("Numbers Bars") thread is here:

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Sierra is a great platform and I do use the number bars every day. I have nothing to do with SC but happy to answer any questions you might have as I do use Sierra a lot.

Altough I have been reading futures.io (formerly BMT) for the past few weeks as a member, tis is my 1st post. Apologies if I should have introduced myself on a separate thread, but just to wanted to add futures.io (formerly BMT) is the dog's b********!

Hello dom64! thanks a lot for your kindness. sorry I replied so late, I've been busy playing with Sierra Chart and didn't come back to the forum often.

I put numbers bars on my chart for a few days, but honestly the flashing colors gave me a headache instead of helping me in any way. I still wanted to see what happens at price levels so I put the volume by price study (bar by bar) on my chart and I'm happy to report that it does more or less what numbers bars do without all those colors. and I can even choose to display ask/bid size and total volume and other information. I'm so happy with this discovery and I've been playing with it for the past few days.

Sierra chart really is great. the only problem is that, if I don't make a profit now, I can no longer blame my trading platform and instead have to man up to my own failure

I've just discovered something that's even better than the Volume by Price study. it's called BID/ASK volume bars. you can find it under Chart Settings -> Graph Type.

basically it does the same as volume by price study bar by bar, but it's much more visual. I'm using it for a small constant volume bar chart, as an attempt to read the tape on a chart.
