Tutorial on NYSE TICK's

There was something funky with Adobe Flash Player a while ago that had incompatibility issues with Camtasia Studio flash files.... maybe this is the cause?

Cool vid. The audio went out the first time I watched it but I just rewound a bit and it worked.


It took me a sec to realize your time axis don't match, tho... i was like "why is he comparing TICK back there to price way over there. What? ... Ohhhh!!!!!" lol

As an understatement, a lot more could be said about using the tick as a principle internal analysis and TIMING tool. TradeStation has a relatively new data feed for an all U.S. tick that includes NYSE comp tick, NASDAQ comp tick (all ECN's), and AMEX tick. Man is it good when trading TF's or EMD's. The point of this is it gives you and your programmed systems a better sense of equilibrium when, for instance, finance sector is weak, and tech sector (NASDAQ) is strong. When both are strong (or weak), time to jump on. This does make significant returns.


BTW, I've been using tick for timing since mid 90's trading OEX at CBOE floor. Use it now for writing artificial intelligence applications for TradeStation, trading the mini Russell 2000 futures (TF).

Deep Green,

How do you trade the TF, i.e. do you use time based or CVB charts? Currently I've been using CVB charts with good success, but still trying to fine tune them. Any info would be appreciated.

One additional item. I try to get as much feedback as I can on the use of $TICK for intraday trading. My use of $TICK seems to keep me out . . . .. . .


Attached below is a good article on NYSE Ticks by John Carter


Also refer to further reading on Ticks at the end of article by Brett Steenbarger

Thanks. Re the $TICK, like Steve says, it's just going to take a lot of screen time to start 'seeing' what I'm looking at.


I've applied the 55, 80 & 200 ma's to my charts and they really help. I have both the 55 & 80 to see which works better for me. I trade the TF and it seems the 55 works best so far.


Thanks again for your help.

    • There is no point asking this question as we know women have now entered most of the fields of business. You might remember this ball busting study which found that women make better investors than men, because they are more risk-averse. 
    • The stock market going up is not a reflection of a healthy economy as created by rationally minded entrepreneurs and investors; it’s going up because the people who have the ability to make it go up also happen to be the ones who’ll benefit from it the most.
    • Landora This thread illustrates a couple of things that humblepieasant hopefully/probably learned 1 day/short term trading is for the few, not the many.  Finding systems that optimize win rate with risks is formidable.  Finding such systems that are also self compatible is exceedingly rare. 2 posting is expensive.  ie It really doesn’t pay short term or long term to give if you don’t got... 3 the need for the kind of “accountability”hp mentioned above is - in a word - transitional.  ie Accountability needs to be turned and referenced inward instead of spread outward... 4 hp would have been much better off trading “a small "live" account through the end of January, then a small "practice account" account beginning February, ... then back live. ... 1 Don’t just look for an edge.  Look for an edge that is also true to your nature.  If an edge is not true to your nature, you will still never be able to make it work consistently. 2 Post what you are learning and see. 3 Post what you are trading and see. 4 See.  ... maybe decades later...
