In SC, Footprint Chart is called Numbers Bars as a study. In the first row, you will have a choice on how to display the volumes and there are many options. Screen shots attached.

My chart looks like this but I don't know how to read it. I wish someone had a tutorial on reading and trading with Volume Ladder/Footprint ("Numbers Bars").

Here is something from Market Delta on how to read footprints. There are many videos on their site.

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
