Renko is a great chart, based on price changes. So how can I get the interval of a brick? And if I can plot it on the brick, it's better.
Thanks guys.

jiaqiangmit,

what do you mean by interval exactly? Does the reserved word BoxSize give you what you are looking for?

jiaqiangmit,

as you are dealing with non time based charts there is no reserved word that provides you with the time a bar took to form.
You could write your own study to accomplish that, by building the time difference between two bars for example. It gets a bit more complicated as you have to take session breaks and weekends into account, but it should be doable.

for the session breaks and weekends, I'll just pass them to make the code easy. I use 6-10 tick bricks to judge the market.
