    You can also use tick and volume charts.

    I personally use volume charts.
  3. redduke...what timeframe, period do you use?

    It all depends on the market. I use 144 volume on DAX. Your tick or volume chars will depend on your style. I hold postions for few minutes usually. Sometimes it could be 30-60 minutes, but that's rare.

  9. I currently use volume charts and range bar charts for all of my ATS trading. The tick levels vary for my range bar charts depending on the instrument I am trading, for instance my ES charts use 3, 5, and 7 ticks.
