Footprint charts (www.fin-alg.com)

OK so I just started a trial for a footprint chart through Fin-Alg on Ninjatrader (Zen-Fire feed). Does anyone have any experience with the reliability of Zen-Fire's tick data? I mean I know they're a fast feed execution etc. but how is their tick data? Maybe I'm just too new at footprint charts but at the end of an uptrend as the Market (ES) is reversing the Cum. Delta continues to increase as the Market steadily declines. This seems odd to me.

The consensus on futures.io (formerly BMT) forum is that Zen-Fire is not as reliable as DTN/IQ for volume analysis. Zen is free but you get what you pay for. If you are serious about volume analysis you want the best and unfortunately it's not free but to test a product Zen-Fire is enough. You can have a trial subscription with DTN and see by yourself if it's worth it. Usually people that uses volume will want to use other market internal metric like the $tick which is not avaliable with Zen-Fire but is part of the package if you intend to use a third party data provider. If you want to use Ninja exclusively then you can also subscribe to Kinetick - Streaming real time quotes and historical market data

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.

If you were to compare now, DTN/Kinetick and Zenfire are 99% identical in the volume area.

Interesting. Sounds like a new study is warranted.

Can you post your analysis comparaison ? or was it just a quick visual assessment ? Did you conduct an extensive test ?

It's an Elite only thread. I am simply suggesting that we keep things organized, and that particular discussion has been covered in depth and is located in the Elite section of the forum. I don't want to create a split topic with the same things being discussed again in a separate thread.

Whether or not you want to become an Elite Member is entirely up to you.
