Is it possible to create a Custom PCF Indicator that would count the number of trades (ticks) for the last 15 seconds, the last 30 seconds, and the last minute (Trade Count)?

I would like the ability to:

View Trade Count as a plot on Charts (5 minute, 3 minute, 1minute)

Use Trade Count in Scans and Watch Lists (15 Second, 30 Second, 1 Minute)

If we can&rsquo;t count All Ticks, can we count up ticks using a Custom PCF Indicator?

Please provide a sample of the code.

No, there isn't a way to count the number of trades, ticks or up ticks during a given span of time as there is no way to mix time frames.

I guess you could count the number of up ticks in the most recent 100 ticks or something when using the tick time frame.

`CountTrue(C > C1, 100)`

I am not quite sure if the question is for me or cknudsen (as a possible suggestion to help with doing what was requested in the original question).

The Tick Index indicator shows the number of stocks trading on an uptick minus the number of stocks trading on a downtick. The TRIN indicator is a technical analysis indicator calculated by dividing the advances-to-declines spread by the volume of advances to declines.

You could cumulate the TICK over time by adding a Custom PCF Cumulative Indicator to the chart with the following settings and switching to the TICK chart.

Period: 1
Average Type: Simple
Up Condition: `C > C - 1`
Down Condition: `C < C - 1`
Value to Add/Subtract: `C`

I

I don't want direction, I want status and values on my Cumuative Tick
Example on 15 TF
10:00  am  tick is 400
10: 15 am tick is -200
the accumulation is the Cumuative Tick has values of  200 at 10:15 am
10:30   tick is -400
the cumulattive tick  is now  -200  at 10:30 am
and so on
I want the value to be plotted as a bar  above and below the zero line

There is no way to restart the cumulative total at the beginning of each trading day.
