Tick Index

Tick Index

DEFINITION of Tick Index

The tick index compares the number of stocks that are rising to the number of stocks that are falling on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). The index measures stocks making an uptick and subtracts stocks making a downtick. For example, there are roughly 2,800 stocks listed on the NYSE. If 1,800 stocks have made an uptick and 1,000 stocks have made a downtick, the tick index would equal +800 (1,800 – 1,000).

Example of the Tick Index


The tick index is a popular indicator used by day traders to view the overall market sentiment at a given point in time. Seeing the ratio of «up» stocks to «down» stocks allows traders to make quick trading decisions that are dependent upon market movement. Typically, readings of +1,000 and -1,000 are considered extremes; traders should be mindful of overbought and oversold conditions at these levels.

A tick index is a short-term indicator, often only relevant for a few minutes. For traders looking to enter into bullish sentiment, a positive tick index is a good indicator of overall market optimism, as more stocks are trading on an uptick compared to those trading on a downtick. However, traders should remember that the tick index is a very speculative identifier of market sentiment at a specific point in time and is considered unreliable for traders who use longer-term strategies.

Trading with the Tick Index

Rangebound Market: The tick index can be used to help time entries and exits in choppy markets. Traders could open a long position when the tick index falls below -1,000 and exit when the indicator gives a reading of +1,000. Traders could match these readings with key support and resistance levels from an existing trading range before entering the market.

Trending Market: The tick index can remain above or below zero for extended durations when a stock is trending. If a market is trending higher, traders could take entry when the indicator returns to zero instead of waiting for it to return to – 1,000. Other indicators could be used in conjunction with the tick index to increase the probability of a successful trade. For instance, traders might use a moving average with the tick index to confirm the market is trending.

Divergence: Traders can look for divergence between the tick index and price to gauge the underlying strength of a market. For example, if a stock’s price is making lower lows, but the tick index is making higher lows, it indicates that the sellers may be losing momentum. Conversely, if a stock’s price is reaching new highs while the tick index is failing to register new highs, it suggests possible weakness in the prevailing trend.

About Flea Powder Products

Flea powders, also called dusts, are made up of a fine powder that can be shaken onto surfaces or applied with a handheld bellows duster into cracks and crevices. All flea powders are not created equally, and some powders can control many types of pests, including fleas, and may not be directly labeled as a flea powder.

Often a flea powder will either contain a non-chemical insecticide ingredient (like silica or diatomaceous earth) or a reduced-risk insecticide, like pyrethrins, or a combination of both. For this reason, it is very important to read labels very carefully.

While there is flea powder for carpets available, many products are only meant to be applied to cracks and crevices.

How To Use Flea Powders

You might wonder if flea powder works on a flea infestation. Flea powders are a great product to use against fleas, but should be an addition to other flea control products for a complete control program.

  • The most important thing to keep in mind when using flea powders is reading the label instructions very carefully.
  • Most of these products are not meant to be broadcast on surfaces like carpet, pet areas, bedding, etc., but instead to be used in cracks, crevices, under appliances, under furniture, and other out-of-the-way places.
  • Flea Stoppers and JT Eaton Kills Bedbugs Powder can be applied to carpets, pet resting areas, and bedding.
  • Always apply very carefully; avoiding puffing the product into the air. Even though these are generally safe products, inhalation is still a concern.

How to Kill and Prevent Ticks in Your Lawn

Ticks and tick bites aren’t restricted to woodland walks and camping adventures. The truth behind these pests strikes closer to home. You and your family are most likely to contract common tick-related diseases from ticks encountered in your own lawn and garden.1 Understanding the answers to these common tick questions can help you protect your family:

  • When are ticks most active?
  • Where do ticks typically hide?
  • Why is effective tick control important?
  • How can you protect against ticks?

When are ticks most active?

Depending on where you live, common ticks in your area may stay active year-round. However, tick activity generally kicks into high gear from April through September. It increases as weather warms — and people and animals become more active outside, too.

Immature, pinhead-size ticks called “nymphs» are responsible for approximately 98 percent of all tick bites. Nymph activity — and the transmission of tick-related diseases such as Lyme disease — tends to peak from May through July. 1

Where do ticks typically hide?

It may seem as though ticks drop down from tree branches, because they’re often found hidden in hair. However, they actually start closer to the ground. Favorite hiding spots include naturalized or unmown areas with weeds and tall grasses (such as tall fescue), especially when they’re humid and shady. When lawns are nearby, ticks move into mowed areas, too. However, more than 80 percent stay in the lawn’s outer 9 feet. Low-lying ground covers and low-hanging shrubs in gardens or foundation plantings are also prime spots for ticks.

Ticks typically move onto humans or animals that brush against grasses or weeds when passing by. Then ticks climb upward and find a spot to bite and feed. An estimated 75 percent of tick bites occur from ticks picked up during normal home activities such as gardening, backyard play or entertaining. 1

Why is effective tick control important?

Tick problems don’t go away on their own — they multiply. Ticks that carry the bacteria responsible for Lyme disease typically lay eggs in batches of 3,000 or more. Some types of ticks lay up to 15,000 eggs before they die. 1 Untreated ticks may live for several years, and some types can even live indoors.

No U.S. region is free from the threat of ticks and tick-transmitted disease. Across the country, tick populations and diseases are on the rise. 2 Reactions to tick bites range from mild itching to serious, even deadly conditions, including Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Lyme disease, tick-induced paralysis and Powassan virus. 3

How can you protect against ticks?

Take steps against ticks by making your lawn and garden less attractive to these pests. Keep areas free of tall grass, weeds and garden debris – you’ll also discourage small rodents, which transport ticks. Place outdoor play and entertainment areas in sunny, airy spots, away from tick-prone zones. Most importantly, eliminate existing ticks and create a perimeter of protection around your home with effective tick control treatment.
