Example of displaying this indicator on the EURUSD hourly chart

​This indicator draws a tick chart and a TrailLine in a subwindow (see image below).

Trail lines are updated as the tick chart changes. If the tick goes above or below the value specified by the parameter, the trail line will also rise and fall. Basically, this trail line should be used for trailing stops.

"A" indicates the number of ticks counted, and "B" indicates the value of the trail specified in the parameters.

How to use:

1. Use for trailing stops.
The trail line described by this indicator can be used for trailing stop as it is. If you reach this line, you may want to close the order manually. You can also make simple trend judgments such as an uptrend if the price is above the trail line and a downtrend if it is below the line.

2. Use as a more effective and functional tick chart
In the above image that is also used as a tick chart, a normal tick chart is displayed on the left. The biggest weakness of ordinary tick charts is that they have a limited number of ticks. On the other hand, the tick chart of this indicator can display the tick chart of a much longer period. Thus, this indicator is also highly valuable just as a tick chart on its own.
