In addition to what @pawnbroker said I'm finding cumulative delta helpful for using volume to trade spot Forex tick charts that have an associated active future (e.g., EUR.USD and 6e).

@FulcrumTrader contributed a couple of amazing videos to (formerly BMT) on cumulative delta here and here

A (cumulative) volume divergence influenced spot FX trade I made recently is shown here

I've also resorted to a "seconds-per-bar" indicator for tick charts in the past
