  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Best Renko Bar? - better vs median vs sbs vs wicked

I've researched and have seen a lot of disagreement and conflicting info. Has a winner emerged?

shoot, you threw in another variable, betterbrick.

@roonius, i know you created at least two of these, can you pls be sure to weigh in. I know you don't support median anymore, are you still happy with sbs and compared them to the others?

thanks cory, roonius,

Maybe you cannot agree, who is the prettiest girl in the contest, but there are a few that are already overweight and have wrinkles So let us look at the different renko bar types that have been created. I think that all bar types with an *) are obsolete.

- Ed's Renko *)
- MedianRenko *)
- B6Renko *)
- WickedRenko *)
- SBSRenko
- NinjaTrader Renko (introduced with NT7)
- LogikRenko
- BetterRenko

I think that @aslan has created B6 Renko, Wicked Renko and Better Renko. Better Renko is the latest creation and replaces the earlier models. @roonius was involved with MedianRenko and SBSRenko, and only recommends SBSRenko as per now. That limits the choice to four of those Renko bar types, namely:

- Default NT Renko
- SBS Renko
- LogikRenko
- BetterRenko

I have never tested LogikRenko - which is a commercial bar type. However, I have installed the three other ones. I have not had any problems with the default Renko and the BetterRenko bar types. But I had problems with SBSRenko, as it is not compatible with all NinjaScript methods.

For example all my multi-timeframe indicators, which need to take into account the NinjaTrader sessions to close the higher timeframe bars, do not run on SBS Renko, but they do run on the NinjaTrader default Renko and on Better Renko bars (and on all other NinjaTrader default types).

That is my current state of knowledge. If anyone knows better, please post!

Better Renko

I have become a very big Better Renko fan! Very easy to see price action.

I think Fat Tails narrows it down pretty well to BetterRenko. Thank you. I have been using these mostly and had only tried the other ones for a short time (excepting the commercial bars, never tried them). I have not played with the Better Brick option of Better renko, which I'll try. Plus in my research I found a indie that predicts the close (like the one for the range bar) which I will load and try. As well as my research pointed to @MWinfrey's method of adjusting the grid to the bar size. All good stuff. Thanks again to the futures.io (formerly BMT) gang. Please, anyone to weigh in more would be great.
