By using an indicator that saves ticks and an indicator that then plots them according to a fixed amount or volume per bar, you can generate tick charts on metatrader 4 completely free. At the end of the process you will have a chart that can be used for the same things as a time chart, you can drop indicators on it, expert advisors, etc. The main draw back with this approach is that only forward charts can be drawn because metatrader does not have any previous saved tick data. I am working on importing tick data for long periods of time so that we can at least visually backtest strategies using constant volume charts. Anyway, the whole process is better explained by the following video. I’ll be waiting for your comments !
