List of Financial Market Terms

"Closing Tick" is the closing price of a given financial instrument at the specified time period you're using in your chart.  If you're using a daily bars chart, the Closing Tick will reflect the closing price at days end.  If you're using a 5 minute candle stick chart, the Closing Tick will reflect the price at the end of that 5 minute period. 

Positive closing ticks indicate to traders in stock trading, options trading, and futures trading, that the stock had strength.  The opposite is true of a negative Closing Tick.
