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.
As explained above, each row of the Footprint Bar Statistics table represents a different value. Below, we provide an explanation of each of these rows.
The total value of market buy orders within the candle.
The total value of market sell orders within the candle.
The delta of market buy orders and market sell orders, within the candle. Market buys - Market sells.
The total value of both market buy orders and market sell orders, within the candle. Market buys + Market Sells.
The change in volume in the current candle, compared with the previous candle, expressed as a percentage.
The high price of the candle.
The low price of the candle.
The highest value of Open Interest within the candle.
The lowest value of Open Interest within the candle.
The total value of long liquidations within the candle.
The total value of short liquidations within the candle.
The total value of both long and short liquidations within the candle.
