I've had several different order flow tools including the one from the infamous scammer Michael Valtos. What I've found is that the tools that come with the lifetime license of NT8 work the best for me.

Now, as to how to use those tools? I personally use the delta per bar on 1 minute Oil charts and look for either continuation or rejection of those bars....especially at key zones

I use NT8 and some third party orderflow tools called "MZpack", I believe it is from a Russian developer. I purchased the full pack however I only use the footprint and volume profile.

I use the cumulative delta from Gomicators, when you download their free-trial the CD is permanently free

Hi, I wanted to know what is the best order flow software out there?
Best being defined as; easy to use, good support, having something that others don’t have.

I was looking at Michael Valtos OrderFlows but his reviews are horrendous and I’ve tried to contact him but never had the courtesy of a reply.

As I am new to futures day trading, I would be looking for a company that can provide some level of support.
What is the software people are using?
Pros and cons would be good.

You are approaching the issue from the wrong end. Or, perhaps, you are forming your question incorrectly. Rather than look for Order Flow Software" and "Support from the company that makes the software" you should focus on the concept of LEARNING the Order Flow and how to apply it and integrate it into your trading. All OF tools are just TOOLS and without solid understanding of what it does and how to use it you will have an equal chance of failing regardless of what OF software you will use. The concept of Order Flow is meant to help trader to analyze market auction by looking at it from the different angle and to use this information to supplement the decision making process. You must know how to read and understand the CONTEXT of the market first before you even get to the Order Flow. This is especially important since you are new to Futures Trading. Also, keep in mind that EVERY futures market you trade is different and ANY Order Flow tool or software needs to be tuned and adjusted for each specific market. What works on ES will not work in CL, etc.

My advice would be to find a solid company (or a private mentor) that provides training for TRADING and uses the OF tools to do that. Once you feel confident that you understand the concept of trading you then may start looking for the right tools to accomplish your goals.

I personally use Sierra Chart Package 5 and will not look at anything else. This is the MOST customizable trading software that exists on the market and the most efficient one for your trading machine. It has all tools you can imagine necessary (including the Order Flow), highly efficient and is written in native C++ which makes it very fast and light on computer resources. The are number of OF packages available for Sierra, the one I use is Emoji Trading. They have everything you may need. However, once again, this is NOT a Holly MUST KNOW what you are doing!

Hi I am using this one
very professional fully customizable excellent tool,. after trying sierra, NT tools, and Mike Valtos software.
By the way Mike Valtos is very true his software is a scam BUT... his training material are very good in understanding concepts and how to apply them regardless of the softwre tool you want to use.
