Tick charts... I've been using this indicator for a while now and I can't live without it. It's a modified version of an indicator given to me by a friend (who I hope will join us in the forum soon ) Tick charts come in two main incarnations: Line charts and candlesticks. Unlike time based charts, they only progress once a tick (an update in price for FX or time and sales activity for futures and stocks) is made regardless of how much time passes between ticks. This has the advantage of taking time out of the equation when evaluating price action. In this thread, I'm sharing a line based tick chart indicator for MT4. Since the line progresses with each price update, this won't be very useful for people who are trading off daily and monthly charts... However, if you want to visualize the volatility around a news release (where second-by-second the momentum and direction can change,) then tick charts can be very useful. It looks a like this: Attached you'll find the indicator. Once attached to a chart, stretch the lower indicator window up to the top of the chart window (as seen in the picture.) Then edit the chart's preferences to make the color for all but the foreground and background set to "none". You can add textual or other chart based indicators to the main window if you'd like (as seen in the image where a spread indicator is running.) You will need to let the indicator collect ticks, since it must paint the chart from when it starts (no way of getting tick level history from your broker's MT4 quote server,) so leave it running for a while to let the chart populate. (This doesn't take long at all during a volatile move in the markets.) I'm planning on cleaning up the code and adding more features, and as I do, I'll provide the updates here. Hope you enjoy!
