Im trying to find the instructions to have my footprint chart show me a market imbalance of 300% or greater.

I believe this would be "numbers bars" in Sierra charts.

I am referring to the diagonal bid/ask

I want to have an imbalance highlighted in bold red/green

Thanks
Ken

Refer to the following:
Numbers Bars: Display Ask/Bid Imbalance

And also the following for another option:

Thanks for your help John , but Ive been changing settins for over an hour....Im close but I cant seen to get it where I only see colored boxes when there is an imbalance of 300%

Can I send you a screen shot?

Thanks again
Ken

PS. is it possible to have an imbalance show up on another chart?...like an arrow, or small number?

Ie: I use 610 ticks for the numbers chart and I also use a 610 candle chart

To get the 300% imbalance you would see the Percent Color Thresholds to (0, 0, 3) (the example gives 400% where the values are 0, 0, 4)

It is not possible to get the imbalance to show in another chart using the Numbers Bars. But look at the Volume at Price Threshold Alert V2 that we referenced above, as that can be overlaid to another chart and then be referenced for an alert.
