In my opinion all of the bars you selected do not show price action clearly or efficiently. Next time attaching a chart would help. My trading mentor told me that to successfully trade the market, our strategy has to consist of repeatable visual occurrences which is a roundabout term for patterns.

The Renko bar manages to filter out a lot of noise and chatter that the other bars simply cannot.

Complimented by a few other indicators, that are readily available here, you can construct a viable strategy. I have been testing a scalping strategy myself that I will eventually automate.

This is what my chart looks like:
