EUR/USD Tick Chart

Does anyone trade the eur/usd or euro futures using tick charts?

I find the arguments that say that tick charts are superior to time-based charts very persuasive.

I trade off of 5 and 10 minute charts.

I realize it's apples and oranges, but what would the tick equivalents be?

It would depend on the time of day and the pace that orders are hitting the tape. At a quick glance at a 5000 tick chart and looking at the time from Frankfurt open to 2 hours past US open ( about 9 hours) I see roughly ( on my zenfire feed):
35000 ticks last friday
90000 ticks last thursday
over 150000 ticks on the 17th of Dec
So even in this sample it ranges from 4000 to 17000 ticks per hour and it would be a lot faster than that at times, and much slower outside of those hours.
Do the maths from there to get an idea of what speeds might approximate what timeframes.

It's subjective to assume tick charts are superior to time-based charts. In fact, i think this is the opposite but that's just my subjectivity. There are positive and minus aspects for both species.

Iīm combining a 10 min with a tick or volume based chart. Donīt forget that all the charts are created from the Time and Sales list. So it really doesnīt matter what you are using. Itīs depend more of the range of the day. You want that the moves will be foreseeable. So combining charts and changing them according the day moves is a good choice.
Of course you have to include a bigger time frame too, so you are able to see the bigger moves.

Thanks, but I'm not following.

Could you elaborate?

Take the 5-min chart, for example.

Lots of people use it. They're all looking at the same thing,and basing their decisions off of what they see.

For that reason, you could say the 5-min chart carries a lot of weight, and is for the same reason a good time frame to trade off.

What I'm looking for is the tick chart equivalent.

Interesting how many consider the markets as being a big computer. Have you tried 666 ticks ?

there is no tick chart equivalent because tick charts are not time based. Sometimes it will match a 200 tick chart and sometimes it will match a 2000 tick chart.
