I am scalper obsessing over whether to use TIME, TICK or VOLUME bases candles. I understand the benefits of all three but what I don't understand is why so many people use seemingly random TICK settings. At least in a TIME chart there are just a few common time frames like 1M, 5M, 15M etc.

Could someone please give their insight as to wether or not TICK charts are even necessary?

Just forget tick charts, From now on only use volume charts, it's what works for me.
