A new tick is sent whenever there is a change in Ask or Bid or Both

That's a romantic idea.

A tick is sent by the mt4 server when the server has time to send the tick and if there is a new tick.

It can happen that if you record all the bids you receive you might find that the high or the low of the minute bar is higher or lower than the bids you have recorded.

It means that you haven't got at least these (all) bids.

One should be aware of this - it might  matter.

A script is run only once it was started!

Only an indicator or an expert is started on the next tick that the terminal receives after the previous execution has ended!

You can't. There is no central exchange for currencies.
