Hi Justin:

I'm using this indicator in three different time frame charts for a any given instrument. (say for CL=crude oil).

Can you please help me in creating three different sound files with following wording using voice synthesizer:

1. Reversal bar in higher time frame chart
2.Reversal bar in middle time frame chart
3.Reversal bar in lower time frame chart

Appreciate your input.

Regards,

Raj

not sure i understand Raj, the folder seems to download fine.

Hi Tuskar:

It is really an issue with my system and after resolving that problem, I could download your file.

It is really working very well.

Thanks for your help again.

Raj

Can't get UniRenko to laod


HighDesertTrader View Post
Hello monpere

First, thanks for sharing. This is an incredible asset. I have found T1R4O1 very useful for scalping and T4R8O4 useful for “Trend” monitoring.

Second, there appears to be a bug. When I connect to Zenfire and load the historical data, I am getting a chart that looks like the attached screen shot. This does not happen on every chart, nor does it always happen on the same chart. If I switch to any other bar type without reloading the Historical Data (including other Renko types like Better or RJay’s) the problem goes away. If I switch the session template to Default 24/7, the problem disappears, even with reloading the Historical Data. I have had the problem with the following session templates (the only others I have tried): “CME US Index Futures ETH,” CME FX Futures ETH,” and “NYMEX Metals/Energy ETH.”

The problems seems to start at the beginning of a new day (the first bar after 00:00:00) and everything could look fine up to that point, including prior transitions to new days. Also, it could then revert back to normal on a new day transition (historical, have not looked into this in real time). At first I thought that it was bad data from the exchange. But the fact that all other bar types work fine precludes this, perhaps. Sometimes, “Reloading All Historical Data” gets rid of the problem, lending a bit of credence to the bad data possibility. I am perplexed and have switched over all of my session templates to Default 24/7. This however, causes other, less fatal, problems with one of my indicators that depends on having the sessions well-defined.

I’m surprised that this hasn’t happened to anyone else. Not sure why it would be unique to my setup. I have systematically removed all of the indicators and strategies from the chart and, with just the barebones data, the problem persists.

Also, I just checked, and the session template “CME US Index Futures RTH” does not have the problem. I am loading 10 days of NQ (03-13), 6E (03-13) and CL (04-13).

I hope I haven't created a “Wild Goose Chase” for you.

Thanks for your work,
HighDesertTrader

Have you tried rolling over your instruments to the latest expiration dates? Perhaps the contracts you are trying to see have expired, hence why nothing would load.

Thanks JustinIsHere. I changed the days back setting from three days to ten days and that seemed to do the trick.

This may not be the right place to ask this since it's a Ninja thread but it is about the UniRenko.

Has anyone found something similar for Multicharts.net? It seems it's a lot harder to code bar types with Multicharts.

My programming skills are (very) limited but I'm looking to see if I can come up with a solution.

monpere, since you created this bar type, would you mind if I take a shot at converting it to MC?

Thanks.

SoRenko - a variation of UniRenko

I tried to tweak the UniRenko to fit my needs. But I am not a programmer and could use some help.
The goal is to create a bartype that draws a bar for every move over a certain amount of ticks. Classic RenkoBars only draw a new bar above or below the old one. The bars I am looking for would also draw bars in a row (if the price move sideways) and not only in the form of a ladder.
I used UniRenko a template for this and adjusted the former artificial open to the real close of the last bar.
To avoid confusion I did set the Period.Type to Custom6 (UniRenko uses Custom 5) and gave it the new Name SoRenko.
I would be glad if someone with more programming skills could check the code for errors, unnecessary code left over from UniRenko features and perhaps help to merge the "TickTrend" and "TickReversal" parameters into one "Tick"-parameter.

BrickBars

I finally found the solution from my last post by tweaking the BetterRenko. Check out BrickBars

You can still use the SoRenko, if you want to have a UniRenko where the open is fixed at the close of the last bar.
Check out the 1 to 3 ratio (i.e. 5 ticks 15 reversal). I creates a range based 3LineBreak.

Soren,
Can you put some pictures comparing your modified Renko with UniRenko?

Thanks!
