Defintion

Tick by tick trade data is the highest resolution historical trade data available. A tick represents a single trade and as such as a timestamp (including millisends), the trade price, volume of the trade, and the exchange the trade was executed on. As such, tick history data can provide the most insight into market micro-structures and provide the best data source for backtesting trading strategies.
