Tick Chart vs. One-Minute Chart for Day Trading
The Pros and Cons of Tick and Time-Based Charts

Both tick charts and times are essential for traders to understand and the trader may find the use of one chart over the other better suits their trading style. Tick charts create a new bar following a tick—the pervious set number of trades—either up or down. Time charts use the basis of a specific timeframe and can be configured for many different periods. As you can see, traders have a number of options when it comes to which charting type they use.
Candlesticks and bar charts are the most popular chart used by many traders. Both the candlestick and the bar can provide the trader with the same information. The one primary difference is that candlestick charts are color-coded and easier to see.
When using these two types of charts traders can choose to create price bars based on time or ticks. Time and tick charts have benefits and disadvantages for the trader. Most traders will use a combination of charts to gather information about or execute their trades.
One-Minute or Time-Based Chart
Time charts can be set for many different time frames. However, if you are using the chart for active trading you will probably want to focus on short periods. If you use a one-minute, two-minute, or five-minute chart, then a new price bar forms when the time period elapses. On a one-minute chart, a new bar forms every minute, showing the high, low, open, and close for that one-minute period.
This creates a uniform x-axis on the price chart because all price bars are evenly spaced over time. Sixty price bars are produced each hour, assuming at least one transaction took place in the stock or asset you are following. One-minute charts are popular among day traders but aren’t the only option.
The bars on a tick chart are created based on a particular number of transactions. For example, a 512-tick chart creates a new bar after every 512 transactions. You can customize tick charts to the number of transactions you want, for example, 5 ticks or 1546 ticks.
Throughout the day there are active and slower times, where many or few transactions occur. Therefore, the x-axis typically isn’t uniform with ticks charts. When a market opens there is quite a bit of volatility and action. So, the tick bars occur very quickly. Five ticks bars may form in the first minute alone. During the lunch hour, though, when the number of transactions decreases, it may take five minutes before a single tick bar is created.
The Power of the Tick Chart
When there is a lot of activity a tick chart shows more information than a one-minute chart. This information includes more price waves, consolidations, and smaller-scale price moves.
For example, when a market opens several ticks bars within the first minute or two may show multiple price swings that can be used for trading purposes. If using a one-minute chart only one bar forms in the first minute, and two bars after two minutes.
These one or two bars may not present the same trading opportunities as the several tick bars that occurred over the same time frame. In this way, tick charts allow you to get into moves sooner, take more trades, and spot potential reversals before they occur on the one-minute chart.
The Power of the One-Minute Chart
When there are few transactions going through, a one-minute chart appears to show more information. For example, assume you are debating using a 90 tick chart or a one-minute chart. Assume that during the lunch hour only 10 transactions occur each minute. It will take nine minutes for a tick bar to complete and for a new one to start.
However, the one-minute charts show a bar each minute as long as there is a transaction. In this case, the one-minute chart produces nine times as many bars as the tick chart, showing more price waves, trends, and support and resistance levels that could potentially be traded.
The Illusion of a Trade or a Real Trade
Tick charts «adapt» to the market. Fewer bars form when there are fewer transactions, warning a trader that activity levels are low or dropping. The one-minute chart, on the other hand, continues to produce price bars every minute as long as there is one transaction within that minute timeframe. This may create the illusion of activity, even though there may actually be little volume in the stock, futures contract, or forex pair.
A chart from TD Ameritrade of the intraday Spdr S&P 500 ETF (SPY) is an excellent example of the difference between using a tick or time chart to trade. Here, the white, time chart lags behind the low notification of the darker, tick chart. The one-minute chart is compared to a 1000 tick chart of the SPY. Both charts start and end at 9 a.m. and 4:02 p.m., respectively. The one-minute chart provides more price bars before 9:30 a.m., but the tick chart creates more price bars during the day—when there is a higher number of transactions—essentially creating a higher «resolution» view of price moves.
One chart type isn’t necessarily better than another. Both can be traded effectively using the right day trading strategy, but traders should be aware of both types so they can determine which works better for their trading style.

BlackBox has changed my life. My account balance was $1,374.50 when I joined. My account is currently valued at $277,110.84. I attribute a lot of the gains I have made from the help I have always received from these guys. Having a room where experienced traders know what they are talking about makes a world of a difference. They call out entries and exits in real time, and it really does not get any more efficient than that during the trading day. Zekia
Started my account on 7-12 with $17k, $5k for long term hold, $12k for day trades. Now worth $29k thanks to #blackboxstocks. @Mitchson1 on StockTwits
As a former broker, I was skeptical and hesitant to use BlackBoxStocks. Within the first week of using the trading system, I quickly realized just how wrong I was! I more than doubled my profits the first month. The trading system is extremely user-friendly and offers tools for every level of trader; from beginner-to advanced. The algos, alerts, and scanners are the best and most solid I’ve seen industry-wide. Maria Chaudhry
I like your trading system very much. I’ve made money with it every day. It gives you a good read before the market opens, the alerts are great, great information all day, including after the close. Mike Miner Broker/Wells Fargo Advisors
Finally, a great, real trading group that’s fun and a real money maker! Excellent personalities and real people who also trade and will help any way they can, well almost, they wont give you the money to trade, but then again maybe they will! They are always also asking for comments on any way to help better their game, but I think they are already the best! I’ve been around the block on stocks and options, so I am speaking from experience. These are great people. Dan D.
I hadn’t been trading very long, maybe a few weeks and was down 30%. I was going to give it one more week before I quit, then I stumbled upon «The Box». Signed up and was there to witness the amazing run that STEM had from $.50 to over $3.00. Within the next 3 weeks I was able to double the value of my account. Six months into trading with BlackBoxStocks and my account is worth 6 times what it was when I started!! I won’t trade without «The Box»! Nate Cypher
BlackBoxStocks really changes the whole trading game. I don’t like to trade without it. I made over $700 in one day trading symbol FATE after your pre-market alert. Thank you BlackBoxStocks for your consistent alerts! David Psarudakis
BlackBox is a complete game changer. I came in a complete novice knowing nothing about options or the stock market in general. BlackBox has helped me grow so much as a trader. I have tripled my account and gained the knowledge I needed to trade full time. The best part of it all, is that with the use of BlackBox, I’ve been able to complete all of this in less than a year while being active duty military. BlackBox is user friendly and the mods are some of the most helpful and patient people I’ve ever met. I won’t trade without BlackBoxStocks. Alisha K.
This product is the best thing EVER for day traders. Within the FIRST HOUR of use it paid for itself. I made $1500 from VCEL which I saw in the BlackBox after hours scan! Priest J. Gordon MBA, PMP
We find the action
We are distinctly different than any other trading system on the market. Our system automatically posts symbols alerting you to explosive opportunities in the market in real time.
How It Works
Long before the market opens, our trading system uses proprietary algorithms that alert you to the most active stocks and options. Once an alert is posted, you can click on the symbol and find out why the stock received an alert. Use our live charting tool and proprietary volatility indicator to see which stocks are breaking out and posting the biggest gains.
A powerful advantage
Our system continuously scans the NASDAQ, New York Stock Exchange, CBOE and all other options markets analyzing over 8,000 stocks, and up to 900,000 options contracts multiple times per second. Our algorithms are similar to those used in extremely profitable ‘high frequency trading’ (HFT) strategies. We are here to level the playing field offering you technology that has too often been reserved for large financial firms, hedge funds, and the Wall Street elite.
