My name is Trevor Harnett and I am the guy responsible for creating the Footprint Chart. Before creating it back in 2002, I was a full time trader (probably like yourself) and member of the CME. Back then I primarily traded the S&P 500 emini futures and traded between 200 and 1500 contracts per day. I know that’s a big range, but days I traded fewer were my better days and the days I traded more were usually not. :)
I have helped thousands of traders learn about the footprint and put it into practice in their trading. If you are like many of them, the first time you saw a footprint chart you probably said “where has this been the whole time!” or “this is exactly what I was looking for!”. Well, the good news is you have found a very valuable trading tool, but your next step is learning and extracting the value it can provide.
After creating a company that was known for the footprint chart, I have since moved back into full time trading (primarily crude oil) and educating traders on the uses of the footprint.
This site is dedicated to helping traders like yourself see numerous examples of footprint charts and deepen your knowledge of how apply it. Follow me on social media using the links above or below.
