Description

Cumulative TICK Indicator Bundle

If you ever read Brett Steenbarger’s popular trading blog Traderfeed, you probably know he uses a special indicator called the cumulative NYSE TICK, and another indicator he calls the cumulative adjusted NYSE TICK, to inform his trading decisions. Essentially, he says he likes to only consider long trades when these indicators are above zero, and short trades when these indicators are below zero. For a more detailed explanation, I would highly recommend his blog, and especially these 2 posts where he explains the thought behind his use of both the Cumulative Tick and the Cumulative Adjusted Tick.

***UPDATE: NEW & IMPROVED VERSION 2.0***

Why You Want It

  • This is the most comprehensive TICK trading indicator bundle available.
  • Useful for reading the trading day’s general sentiment: has more market activity been happening on upticks or downticks?
  • Useful as a filter for what types of trades you’re willing to take at any given moment.
  • Helps simplify the raw TICK indicator and make it more human-friendly and meaningful.
  • Find extreme TICK readings that can be faded.
  • Cumulative and Adjusted Cumulative Ticks can be tuned to work as an oscillator to show overbought/oversold conditions for the overall market.

How It Works

The cumulative tick indicator works by taking the HLC3 values (HLC3 means “(high + low + close) / 3”) for the $TICK symbol and cumulating those values for each bar on the chart throughout the course of the trading day, resetting to zero before the market opens each day. So it always oscillates around the zero line. The cumulative adjusted tick indicator is slightly different: instead of cumulating the HLC3 values for the tick, it first adjusts them. It finds the difference between the current bar’s HLC3 and the average HLC3 value for the $TICK, and then cumulates that difference instead of the actual values. Once again it resets to zero each morning as the market opens, so it always oscillates around the zero line.
