Still on my early-learning curve to day trade the emini with consistent success, I am now trying to learn more about the use of tick charts. The shortest time frame I presently use is the 1 min chart, but I understand there may be significant advantages to also use tick charts, perhaps of varying lengths (numbers of ticks), so is there anyone out there who could offer some guidance, please ? I imagine that as a tick chart is constructed from a selected number of ticks, eg. 25, 75, 144, whatever, volatility (or do I only mean volume ?) is effectively built-in, as the more trades there are, the more frequently the bars will appear. I have heard the comment, "Now that I use tick charts, I would never use regular time charts again (for day trading the emini)", so I am also wondering how many on this board would concur with that statement ? J-Trade.
