Random Thoughts: TRIN & TICKS

I am now reading Mastering the Trade by John Carter and came across this section on TRIN and TICKS. I tried monitoring it last night. I find TRIN easier to watch and understand - what is important is not the current reading, but the relativity. But I am having some problems with reading TICKS. Honestly, I see stars when I watch the 15min candlestick chart for TICKS. One second it was reading 1000 points, the next second it was reading 300+ points. At the end of the day, there wasn't any clear trend on the TICKS chart. Anyone has any experience to share on reading TRIN and TICKS? Btw, TraderFeed has a great post on this topic.

Oh, and my broker IB is going for IPO soon. (via MaoXian)
