Many traders make use of the Fibonacci sequence to set the tick amount per bar.

They do - but many believe in astrology and moon-phases, too.

There's no rational reason for using Fibonacci numbers to set the tick-count, is there?

I may have missed something (and in fact that's normally the reason for my failure to understand things) but I don't really understand why people with volume-charts available should ever prefer tick-charts. There seem to be enough of them, even among profitable traders, for there probably to be a valid reason, but I don't understand it, myself. Even after discussing it on several occasions.
