X Tick Chart

Tick charts measure a number of transactions per bar. To give you an example if you have a 233 tick chart, each bar measures 233 transactions per bar and a new bar is plotted after 233 transactions.

You can choose any number of ticks per bar but most traders choose Fibonacci numbers (1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233...).

The indicator uses tick data to plot the historical tick chart for a particular setting and real ticks for plotting live charts. This method of calculation gives very accurate charts as no approximation is used.
