tick bars and time frames

Discussion in 'Technical Analysis' started by propslave, Mar 30, 2009.

  1. I'm having a few issues with backtesting a new system.

    What I need to create are tick bars based on longer time frames... does this make sense? ie I need indicators to be based on the 2 hour timeframe, but I need the trigger to take place within the 2 hour bar based on the tick.

    I can't expand too much further on what I'm doing... I'm not even sure it's possible... any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated...
