Is it possible to overlay a tick chart with a minute chart? I have been trying to add the 150 tick chart on top of the 5 minute chart, but too noisy and doesn't look good I guess because of scaling???

Is there a way to possibly do this?

Trying to combine 2 charts into 1. I trade off the 5-minute chart, but also look at the 150 tick and 30 minute charts as well. I would like to keep the 30 minute chart separate, but trying to get a better visual on coding the parabolic SAR slightly differently for large moves that happen quickly. My strategy captured the large move in crude today based off of the jobs report, but lost almost 40 ticks because the 70+ tick drop happened so fast.

Just trying to see both time frames on top of each other to possibly optimize my stop based on shorter term price action.
