Save the current tick price in a static/global, when the next tick comes in you have the previous tick price.

  1. You are asking how to assign a value to a variable? Look at any documentation page, (that has a code example,) and you will see many.
  2. learn to code it, or pay someone. We're not going to code it FOR you. We are willing to HELP you when you post your attempt (using SRC) and the nature of your problem.

Generic code for programming assignment of a value to a variable.  (Note, this may or may not work for MQL, check documentation for better examples.)

currentTick=whatever value the program you write sends to it;
firstTick=currentTick;
programming code here, next tick comes in
check value of currentTick against value of firstTick
do something here depending on value of firstTick in relation to currentTick
(this could be calculate difference between the 2, check to see if it is higher, lower, or equal.  it all depends on what you want the program to do with the information
