Quotetracker/IB $TICK Chart

Discussion in 'Trading Software' started by Eldredge, Oct 13, 2008.

  1. I can't seem to get Quotetracker to make a good chart of $TICK using IB for data. The IB chart is okay, but the QT chart just has a spot here and there (using 15 second candlestick). Can anyone help me out?
  2. That's exactly what it should look like.

    It looks better if you go out to 30 seconds, but one minute is best.

    Why would you want a 15 second tick chart? ... the information flits around too much to really be of use at that fractal anyway.

    Good Luck
  3. I changed the spike filter to 100 (thanks for the tip Jay), and it is more of what I wanted.

    I have been experimenting with using TICK to fine-tune my final entry when trying to catch a reversal. Like everything else, it works great sometimes.
  4. Cool

    You might also want to try a heikin-ashi filter on the chart, it makes the candlestick appear better than the regular setting does.

    Good Luck
