Custom Watchlist Q>AgType Tick Possible?

The reason for this post is to confirm my t-script research that its not possible to specify aggregation type as tick for a custom watch list.

I have created numerous custom watch lists that work great using the available aggregation time periods (e.g., minutes to hours to days/weeks) but was hoping to have one column for a tick-based indicator.

Based on numerous web searches (and in the TOS learning center) I see examples of how to specify the time-based aggregation periods, but obviously nothing on how to specify a tick type, nor a specific statement ala "Neither tick nor range aggregation periods can be used" or something to that effect.

Can anyone either confirm this to be true, or point me to a site that shows what code I can use to specify a tick aggregation type? Thanks ...
