Tick Price Charts

What is a Tick Chart?

A Tick chart is a type of chart that is based on trading volumes and a pre-specified amount of transaction (incoming ticks) and not in time. Actually, using a tick chart traders may completely eliminate the time factor and focus entirely on the real Price Action via the executed transactions. For example, a chart which forms a bar every 34 transactions is called a 34-tick chart.

Tick Chart Settings

There is no perfect recipe to set a Tick Chart, it depends on the asset you are trading, on the market conditions, and most importantly on your trading style (day-trader, scalper, etc). Here are some important points:

■ Scalpers Forex Traders may use the 5-tick or the 21-tick or the 70-tick chart. Some traders believe that the best tick number for EURUSD is 70 ticks

■ Stocks traders input the number of ticks based on the Fibonacci sequence:

1|2|3|5|8|13|21|34|55|89|144|233

Usually, stocks traders use 89 or 144 or 233 ticks, mainly 233 ticks.

 

The advantage of Tick Charts in Volatile Markets

During high-volatile market conditions, traditional charts are forming long bars that have little information to show. In contrast, a tick chart during volatile market conditions divides the price action into smaller candles and therefore make it easy to identify strong trends and reversals.
