💜Tick-by-Tick Charting Data

Upstox is the 1st broker* in India to offer Tick-by-Tick(TbT) charting data. Unlike Snapshot data, Tick-by-Tick charting data lets you capture every individual transaction in the market, including price, volume, and time stamps. If we were to compare the 2 charts that use TbT data to those using snapshot data, TbT shows accurate higher highs, lower lows, and more data points in candlestick patterns. It gives accurate mapping of indicators, precise pattern recognition and reliable price triggers. What’s more? It’s free to use for all Upstox users!
