Here I combine Banknifty stocks and indices to create a Tick chart.
A Tick Chart - By definition, a Tick Chart tracks movement of the underlying stocks. A positive move is counted as +1 and negative move is counted as -1. Total for the underlying stocks is shown as tick chart.
BUT - Some stocks like HDFC Bank have much larger influence on the BankNifty index. So I have give weights to the stocks to calculate the index. Movement in other indices like Nifty also has influence of Banknifty next move. Hence I have combined a few indices in the calculation.
How to use this chart:
Reversals: One can look for strong tick movement in reverse direction of current trend - preceded by weak ticks.
Continuation Confirmation: Average tick movement in the positive or negative territory can confirm the positive or negative momentum respectively.
I have also observed that before some reversals, tick value jumps to extreme. e.g. chart is showing minor uptrend. So we are getting Ticks in positive territory .. and there is a sudden extreme uptick..and then Banknifty turns down.
Nothing is perfect. So, even this indicator doesn't give you exact signals. Please take every indication / signal to strengthen your price action analysis.
If volume of a Banknifty stock is higher than previous candle, it is counted as +1. If it is lower, it is counted as -1. These counts are added to give the Banknifty Ticks count.
I try to use it for confirmation of reversal points as well potential support / resistance points on a short timeframe.
Another change done: the SMA of the regular ticks is hidden by default. Eversince I started using Volume ticks, I have found myself not using the SMA. Also, after adding Volume ticks, the chart got too crowded.
