Arrow Tickcharts with Metatrader / IB

Hello

Metatrader has Tickcharts, but its not possible to show them as candles for example.

Is there a way to activate the Tickcharts in Metatrader, to get them plotted as candles?

I trade with InteractiveBrokers, if its not possible with MT4 alone, maybe Metatrader can use the IB feed?

Thank you and regards

Alt+2, or Charts->Candlesticks

MetaTrader can use IB feed and ECN feed

Thank you and regards

Croupier started this thread Hi Magos,

sorry my question was not correct.

My problem is the following:

When I go on "View" > "Market Watch" I get the list from the diffrent symbols on the left side.
If I right click on such a symbol, I can choose "Tick Chart" - but this Tick Chart is worth nothing for me, as would like it in candles and in the normal Chart window.

Also I would like to change the interval. So that I can display a 120 Tick Chart for example.

Thanks and regards

when you open the chart you have the following options
Alt+1 (hold Alt key and press 1) Bar Chart
Alt+2 (hold Alt key and press 2) Candlesticks
Alt+3 (hold Alt key and press 2) Line Chart
You can go down in the graph periods and hold the left mouse key and with goin right or left you can make the period larger or smaller

120 Tick Chart it doesnt let you specify size. It is pre-fix
