Footprint Bar Statistics Overview

To accompany TradingLite's range of order-flow tools, Footprint Bar Statistics is a numerical method of analyzing data. This can be useful in providing a quick method to summarize a variety of data.

Although numerical in nature, a color grading is applied to each of the configurable rows, allowing you to quickly identify point of interest, at a glance.

By default, the data within each column of the Footprint Bar Statistics is derived from each candle. Depending on the row itself, this may be the value for that particular candle in isolation, or a cumulative value based on either the session or the the candles in view.
