Tick Counter MT4

Postby logicgate » Fri Jul 19, 2019 8:50 am

Hi there my friend.

I was looking for a countdown indicator for tick charts (for MT4), because I use the countdown timer in time based charts to know when the bar is completing, it helps a lot.

On the tick charts however, it won't work. I needed an indicator that could be just a simple label on the chart showing the ticks on the current bar, so, for example, if my tick chart is 900 ticks, I know that when the tick count on the current bar is approaching this value, the bar is almost finished.

I was using the volume indicator for this purpose, but it's eating up screen space and annoys me. (because on the tick charts the volume bars have all the same size).

Thanks brother

It's impossible to do that. Every non-standard timeframe indicator should do it itself.

What I was thinking was this:

Since I was using the regular volumes indicator to check when the bar was completing (because on tick charts all bars have the same volume), you could create just a volume indicator that shows the volume of the current bar as a numerical value (a label I can drag and place wherever I want on the chart).
