Anyone find any edge with activity based charts over time based charts?

Good stuff, guys.

Related to this topic:

Do you guys have any preference with regards to what bars you use to display your charts?

Candlesticks? Regular bars? HiLo bars?

For my time based charts I have a clear preference for candlesticks. I like to observe wicks and consider large wicks/tails to indicate exhaustion at price levels. This is interesting.

But for faster charts, I might be interested in compressing my chart a bit and the wicks might be less interesting since there will be a 'lot' of bars anyway.
