Hi Blash,thanks for your recommendation.I actually already bought Kam' volume profile course.the course teaches me how to use volume profile but did not teach much about how to read the footprint chart.Could you also recommend a good course which can teach me how to read the footprint chart.Thank you!



When did you buy it? He has updated it and it's extremely complete. In it he talks through and explains how to use the "foot print" chart. He emphasizes greatly, almost to the point of going over board, how people dwell on these tools way to much and it's only needed for a short time. A way to decide "how" to enter the market.

If it was a while ago I'm sure you can work out a deal with him for the updated course.

This course is called Profile Trading Mastery.

The "foot print" chart is covered in his 6th module called "Timing and Execution".

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.

I have a very hard time understanding why it's not enough for you what Kam has taught. It's impossible for me to even imagine a more complete level of instructions. But if you go to NinjaTraders Website and look at their ecosystem there are plenty and plenty of educators there for that kind of stuff that will gladly take your money. Or just Google for it.

A big part of Kams instruction is believing and committing to a logical trading system. It doesn't seem you have done this and are more of the typical trader always searching for the next thing.

Check out Jigsaw's video on the Depth and Sales tool also..... lots of free instruction there.

These tools are much less of a mystery than people believe them to be. It basically amounts to looking for something that doesn't exist but might work out now and again which just reinforces the idea in traders that they NEED more knowledge about the market. What they really need is a better understanding of themselves.

Why don't you send Kam a email asking him, as one of his students, who he would recommend for what you are looking for. Make the most of Kam (your mentor).....

Better yet why don't you post asking for more "foot print" education on the Timing and Execution module 6 page, hardly anybody posts but me, so all can benefit from the answer.

Maybe This?

I HAVE NOT taken either of these courses, at least not yet, but I have interacted with Niels, the main guy, on the Mr. TopStep Euro trade-room and he is very knowledgeable about footprint. I do know that.

Crash Course 3h - Market Profile, Footprint Charts and Orderflow Trading with MarketDelta & BookMap - AMS Trading Group

UnLimited - 2mo Course +6mo EURO Pro room - Get to be an independent trader - AMS Trading Group

Worth a look, at least.

Hi guys, not too sure what there is to "teach" about footprint. I will do a video and post the link to show how I use it if anyone might find it useful. No need to pay for a course. The same info is of course included in the tape and much more, but I will do a YT video on the footprint. There is never a single and unique way to look at various elements when trading, but it is useful to understand how others are using it. There are courses out there on the subject, most of which from vendors trying to sell their software, and I have to say I have seen several of them, and it is at best, an interpretation of the footprint, so it is either way a case of using what works for YOU.

As discussed, a video with my use of the Footprint : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMrqr7j2hxQ

A bit long but good examples happened as I went along, so I kept recording :-)

Thanks for taking the time to prepare and share your video.

I have a question regarding the DOM...

You said that limit orders in the DOM may be real or fake. It's kind of a game played to trap traders in the wrong direction. How do you differentiate between what's real and what's false? And if you assume this may be a game to trap people would it not be better to avoid looking at it and just consider the footprint as it shows what really took place.

Also, i see you have bookmap, that makes quite a bit of information to look at in terms of numbers. BM shows liquidity in a visual way but you still look at the DOM. Is there a reason you keep both tools? With BM you could get rid of the tape as well as the DOM, no?

You never know for certain, but after you've been watching the DOM for a while you tend to guess fairly well and be able to tell to some degree.It is this realtionship Limits Vs Market that makes the market move so you can't really ignore what can possibly be gamed. So you have what really took place (Tape/Footprint) and the Poker table.

The reason why I keep Jigsaw is beacause I am used to it, and it gives me info BM doesn't. I am also used to placing orders on Jigsaw so it's a question of habits. BM is really good indeed to spot algos activities, real or fake. It is very visual so in one screen I have most of the info I need to execute and manage orders really.
