Tick charts

Tick charts

Live tick charts showing every change in the ask or bid price.

The tick chart shows you short-term market movements to support high-frequency trading, and lets you visualize changes in the spread. The charts can also show a tick speed indicator, illustrating active and quiet periods in the market, and can draw tick candles instead of a line chart.

Features

  • Tick-speed histogram, showing the time taken for the last N ticks
  • Timed mode, where the X axis of the chart has constant units of time while still showing each individual tick
  • Option to draw tick candles (a chart where each candle is made up of e.g. 20 ticks, rather than being time-based)
