The chart interval is the time scale of the chart that is chosen.
Each interval shows a point such as on a line chart which can be O pen, H igh, L ow or C lose or user chosen average. Often in formula you may see it as O/H/L/C.
It can be a bar where O pen is on the left, High and Low being the bar extremes and C lose being on the right. I mainly use bars as it often shows and helps in wave identification.
Candle charts generally have H and L being the wicks and the body O and C.

The interval is normally in the top left hand corner of charts along with the symbol and description.

    “A tick is the time scale of the chart that is chosen” – its my experience that a “tick” when referring to charts is generally understood to be – tick charts are based on a certain number of transactions per bar – so already from my perspective you are using a term that is already used by the industry to mean something other than the way you use it – causes immediate confusion for me 🙂
