$TICK chart with QuoteTracker

  1. How do I make $TICK work with QT? The chart does not seem to move all the time. It's like for minutes it remains flat, and all of a sudden moves to another number. Is it because I set the chart type wrong (I use line chart atm).

    Helps appreciated!

  2. Try a bar chart and please tell us what data feed you are using.

    I use IB's data feed and NYSE:$TICK-NYSE works fine for me in QT.
  3. I use TD Ameritrade. By bar chart do you mean OHLC?

    and what symbol exactly do I need to type? $TICK-NYSE?
  4. Yes, OHLC is a bar chart.

    I can't help with TD Ameritrade data feed. Maybe your data feed doesn't have good $TICK data. Try going to a TD Ameritrade user forum and ask about it.
