Tick chart

How to set up tick chart.

Tick โ€‹โ€‹Chart builds a new bar after a set number of trades, for example after every 500 trades. Basic charts (like time-based) draw a new bar after a set period of time, for example after every 5 minutes or hours.

For example, each bar of a 500-tick chart represents 500 trades of any size. A tick can be a trade of just one contract, or 10,000 contracts. This is why itโ€™s crucial to combine the use of tick charts with volume.

To set this chart type, open TimeFrame Selector and select in the drop-down menu โ€” Tick.
