Imbalance/Absorption patterns with S/R Zones

mzFootprint calculates diagonal Imbalance. Diagonal imbalance e.g. at Bid means that volume of filled sell orders is greater by given percentage than the volume of filled buy orders at price just above that Bid price. E.g. on ES Bid @2000.00 and Offer/Ask @2000.25.

Absorption is a diagonal imbalance but with level rejection. Absorption depth means how far price bounces from the level of absorption. Use it to spot reversals.

S/R Zones are based on levels of imbalances or absorptions. The more volume traded and more there are consecutive levels in a zone the stronger this particular zone is.

Levels of imbalances on ask side will create a support zone, whereas levels of imbalances on bid side will create a zone of resistance. In case of absorption, all are vice versa: levels of absorptions on ask side will create resistance zone, whereas levels of absorptions on bid side will create a zone of support.

Color Modes

Clusters Heatmap or Gray Scale Heatmap mode automatically translates values of clusters to colors.

  1. FT _ Fund Manager (verified owner)

    I found the COT reading an excellent attribute to the software I am not aware of anyone else offering this on a footprint, I recommend any trader to understand this and if used correctly can generate good risk reward trading.
    I would certainly recommend this product “FootPrint by MZpack and just to state I have no connection with this company other than being a customer.
    I also purchased this product mainly because it provides me with the certain end of day information which I need to workout market flow for the next day, week or month. This does it very well and I can read the information quickly.

    I actually prefer your foot print charts much more than any other foot print chart I’ve ever come across (and believe me, I’ve seen them all).
