Chart Trade using Other Chart Types

Footprint® Charts

A Footprint® is an individual price painted on the chart with a unique color that contains volume or some other market statistic. Stacking Footprints together creates bars, similar to what any candlestick or bar chart would present. The primary difference, and thus advantage of the Footprint®, is it shows each individual price within a bar AND displays value added information such as volume at price, order flow, buy/sell pressure, and other valuable statistics.

Charts, 140+ Technical Studies, & Drawing Tools

With close to 10 different chart types, 140+ technical indicators, and numerous drawing tools, MarketDelta® makes it easy to build the charts and layouts you need to succeed as a trader. Lots of options and unparalleled levels of customization help provide the necessary edge to compete in today’s markets.

Unique Price and Volume Studies

It is no secret that MarketDelta® is the leader in volume analysis, so it only makes sense that we would have some unique tools to help you become a better trader.

Greater Awareness & Increased Transparency

Market Profile® offers traders a structure to organize price activity in a logical way and to help see where “value” is being established. Traders typically use Market Profile® charts to determine price levels that are significant and often lead to reversals.

Use the Footprint® charts to confirm if a particular Market Profile® level will hold. Verify your entries and exits by “zooming” in on how the auction is developing at key levels and to make more informed decisions.

  • Split single brackets or entire profiles
  • Split a single day or all profiles
  • Merge profiles to create custom composites
  • Value areas; compute using TPO or Volume
  • POC – compute using TPO or Volume
  • Initial Balance – customize if you want
  • Initial Balance extensions
  • Create custom sessions
  • Day / night split profiles
  • Single print identifier
  • Naked POC Lines
  • Peak Valley identifier using Profile Indicator
  • Volume overlay alongside TPO profile
  • Much, much more.

How Market Profile® Can Help


When a market is trading sideways or trending it is helpful to see price action displayed as a distribution so you can keep a firm perspective on the underlying tendencies present in the market.


Identify the structure of the current market. Is it likely to rotate (reverse) or breakthrough and trend in one direction? Where is the next most likely stopping point for price action?


Gain a better understanding of market dynamics and the auction structures of a market. Trade with tools the pro’s use. Combine the Market Profile® and the Footprint® chart for a particularly deep understanding of the forces at play in the market.

Profile Indicator

One of our most popular indicators, you can accomplish just about anything with it.

  • Long term volume profiles
  • Automatic high/low volume levels
  • Peak Valley indicator
  • Heat Map profiles
  • Daily and intraday profiles
  • Value Area & POC for current day and previous
  • Naked POC
  • Time or volume profiles
  • Compute last X Profiles – this allows for merged profiles.
  • Much more.

Composite and Long Term Volume Profiles

This chart shows us 250 days of trading, automatically labeling high and low volume levels using a feature called Auto Peak/Valley Lines. These may act as support and resistance.

Much of this analysis is accomplished using our very popular Profile Indicator.

MarketDelta® is routinely recognized as the leader in auction market theory and volume analysis.

Trading Systems

An entire trading system provides the complete set of rules for trade management. You can determine, using backtesting and optimization, which exit strategies are the most effective, and you can also build scale-in and scale-out rules, in addition to stop-loss parameters and more.

Emulate True Trading Results

By building a full, comprehensive trading system, you can accurately analyze how a particular strategy is best implemented. Should you usually hold on for 4 points, or wait for 10? Is it best to sell part of a position early, or is long-term profitability improved by holding until the end of the day? What are the most successful stop-loss settings that minimize losses but with minimal sensitivity to volatility? MarketDelta® Professional lets you answer all of these questions and much more.

Backtest Market Profile®, Footprint or other Strategies

Do you trade Market Profile® charts and want to know how your approach performs over many months – or years – of data? Building a trading system lets you define exactly how you enter and exit your trades using special RTL tokens we’ve custom-built to follow the Market Profile® charting methods pioneered by the Chicago Board of Trade. Then, apply your system to many years of intraday data, or for any time frame that interests you. You can instantly identify which Market Profile® levels tend to be the most successful, and which are more subjective.

Order Flow Testing

Use the Footprint charts for clarity into the market’s order flow, then build trading systems from the patterns you see. Using RTL, you can directly quantify order flow imbalances and test them against recent tick data. We provide special programming tokens for analyzing volume-at-price statistics, as well as net buying or selling activity in a given bar, or for an entire day. Develop an edge using methods unavailable in any other trading package on the market.


If you find levels that perform well in your backtest, take it a step further with Optimization. This lets you clarify exactly how long you should hold onto trades, or how large of a stop-loss to carry, for the best long-term results. Or, the entries themselves may need tweaking. Does the market typically move a point or two against your normal entry? Optimize to test if your entry should be altered slightly so you take the least heat.

Improve Your System

A profitable system can be made even more profitable by letting the software test data and notify you of the best exact hold times, stop-loss levels, entry criteria and more. A creative trader can use Optimization to significantly test many aspects of the entry signal itself and generate entirely new signals you might have never considered.

And, a system that is not yet profitable can often turn profitable by tweaking a few simple parameters that MarketDelta® Pro Complete identifies for you automatically.

Other Charting Features

  • Set audio alerts on signals to be notified instantly.
  • Time and Sales
  • Layouts and Workspaces
