The NYSE Tick Index is a short-term trading index which takes the difference in up ticking stocks from down ticking stocks. Here’s a video of live trading with the NYSE Tick.

For example: if there are 2000 stocks trading on the NYSE and 1500 trade higher from the previous price and 500 trade lower from the previous price the Tick Index will read +500 (1500 – 500).
