Sierra Chart offer various ‘Service Packages‘. Advanced Packages (Package 5/11/12) include Numbers Bars – the Sierra Chart implementation of a Footprint® Chart. Standard Packages (Package 3/10) does not include this feature. Standard Package is provided free of charge by some futures brokers.
Even though emoji indicators analyse the data that is contained within and presented by Sierra Chart Numbers Bars, they do not require Numbers Bars to be displayed or that the trading platform is capable of displaying them. You can apply emoji indicators to regular candlestick charts (or renko, Heiken-Ashi, OHLC bars, etc.) and visualize the resulting Supply/Demand events. You may find that you no longer require visibility of the Numbers Bars in order to make trading decisions and use candlestick charts combined with emoji indicators to see a larger chart area than is possible when using Numbers Bars.
