If you want the VAP overlay visible, you have to go to Global Graphic Settings and set them like in the screen shot

chrislib,

Thanks, once again.

I now have the VAP overlay visible (see my attached screenshot).

Do you have any comments/views/answers to the 6E instrument not plotting well as shown in my post 39. In fact, ES, CL, and GC do not plot well too.

As cory already mentioned, your chart looks like the tick size is not properly set. You have to set them in the chart settings and in the VAP subwindow, specially when you copy your chartbook to use it with a different instrument. See below.

chrislib,

I did all the settings in your screenshot for ES but still no success. So, can you please post the ES bookchart or preferably 6E ? This should guide me in the setup for the other instruments.

chris,

This is how "bad" I have gone on the 6E bookchart. I can't figure out the reason for those vertical lines on the chart (they seem to be derived from the "Graphical Settjngs"; and the thick blue color on the left of the chart (must be the VP that is not plotting well)). I've attached the 6E bookchart in zip format (just rename it by removing the ".zip" extension from it) in case you can correct it and post the corrected version.

since openecry data for 6E has 2 decimals I make sure the display format is .01 the increment is .01

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

Still using my Footprint6E_01032010_v1 bookchart, and with some ideas from your CumDeltaVolume6e-.StdyCollct study collection, I get this far (see attached). Those vertical lines are now plotting correctly; the VP is plotting correctly too. I'll still continue to improve on it.

Thanks, Cory.

Cory and chrislib,

I now have 6E perfectly behaving (see my attached screenshot). Thanks to both of you for the input, and assistance.

My next challenge to overcome, and immediately, is how to use the Footprint and VP to successfully and profitably trade.

I am not an expert, but after using the footprint stuff first from MD and now with SC, I figured, that the footprint is most valuable in tracking order flow live or in replay mode at S&R. I think charts are nothing more then a GUI for the T&S. Every indicator you throw at that data, might help you visualize some trend or what ever, but to me footprints are one of the closest graphical matches to T&S, so you can see buyers/sellers participating or not at the important levels on a tick scale. To me that is what matters. I try with 5-10x replay to speed up my pattern recognition abilities, because to get better by watching price hit S&R in real time takes a very long time.
