They do - but many believe in astrology and moon-phases, too.

There's no rational reason for using Fibonacci numbers to set the tick-count, is there?

I may have missed something (and in fact that's normally the reason for my failure to understand things) but I don't really understand why people with volume-charts available should ever prefer tick-charts. There seem to be enough of them, even among profitable traders, for there probably to be a valid reason, but I don't understand it, myself. Even after discussing it on several occasions.

The market was a great emotional people how the trade and the trader was affected by the nature and condition of the mind
If you look at the full moon many people have been affected it is true a simple to understand, use tick chart i have more information when a time candle bar a use tick many years in stock and futures aim very satisfied bar Tick a use bar time just for ordreflow to look aggressive seller or buyer

I'm not suggesting that anyone should use time charts instead of tick charts: I'm simply saying that I don't understand people's preference for tick charts over constant-volume candles.

Agree with that. I think tick charts are a nice option for spot forex traders who don't have volume but I don't see why a futures trader would really prefer them. Each to their own though.
