The best Tic chart for 4/5 pts on the ES

Discussion in 'Strategy Development' started by hardyards, Oct 30, 2006.

  1. I imagine that one size of Tic chart is better for pulling 4/5 points out of the ES during the first couple of hours of trading than any other size.

    55 or 100 is looking OK, but then again these sizes may not be optimal.
  2. hardyards,

    Are you asking a question?....or just making a statement.

    I use a 610 Tick chart for Trending....and most of the time....a 20 Tick chart for Scalping....on the ER or ES.

    I adjust the Scalping chart....depending on how fast the market is moving....or when Price goes into a Range.

  3. tic charts differ a lot between eSignal and IB so you need to specify the datafeed. There are a lot more ticks in eSignal so the chart tic size is much greater.
