Ticks bars duration indicator

Ticks bars duration indicator

Used in tick bars, or at least not in time, to evaluate the duration of the bar in seconds.
Returns the number of seconds elapsed to complete each individual bar.

Could be useful to measure the market speed in non-time-dependent charts: ticks charts, range bars, renko bars, etc.
