BrickBars 5 *
This is a bar type for NinjaTrader, based on the superb BetterRenko by Aslan. (I only changed the size of the reversal brick, the name and set the PeriodType to Custom9)
It simply paints evenly sized bricks/bars if the price fills the specified range of ticks up or down from the last close.
Instead of only creating ladders (like a regular Renko does) one also gets sideways movement if the market is flat or oscillating. I creates a bit more noise but also helps to identify possible turning points when the market hesitates.
Because these bars are drawn from real ticks, there are some times shorter bars or even small gaps. In my experience it does not influence the correct alignment of the bars.
The BricksBars should be as reliable in backtesting as are the original BetterRenko.

Check, whether you have any other PeriodType registered as Custom9 before importing the script. (If so, you can easily change the number in Notepad.)
If you have any suggestions how to improve the code, feel free to contact me.
