Maybe a different type of chart would help

Maybe if you look at a different type of chart it would help to understand the action better.

This type of chart shows what happens inside the candle.
I can't recommend a particular indicator for this since this is my custom indicator.

I did not have the 2/14 data on my charts but in real time this chart if from earlier today on CL.

You can see on candle #4 the wick has both bid and ask prices on the same candle.
Also notice that some candles in this small tick size do not have any trades or only trades on one side.
(There is also not much volume at the early hour when this was taken)
If you save the T&S data and this information you can see what took place.
