hey,


what are those SoRenko bars?

I tried them and they were 3x faster than the Renko's, especially after I changed the standard 6 setting to 3

UniRenko for TradeStation

How can I get the NT code for the UniRenko so that I can translate it to EasyLanguage for TradeStation?

Unirenko bar not working on Weekend


Tasker_182 View Post
I also used that first version which was loaded up here and in NinjaTrader's forum, and i had no issues during news trades. For me the issues showed up in market replay. Yes, I am using the latest version as it solved the market replay problem for me. Some folks reported a memory leak issue so perhaps that could be the problem?

Your charts/indicators sound like a non issue. How is your internet in terms of speed? If that is fine then perhaps you have at least 1 reason to become an elite member.

I signup as a Elite member and downloaded the latest version. I get a black chart on Weekend and error massage below, any one help please.

Error on loading chart date for '$usdjpy default':reason='Unsupported scope'.Description=No data found for symbollID=2. interval=0.startTimestamp=20130907-06:00:00.edntimestamp=10130908-05:59:59!

Thank you,

Thank you,

Have you tried it on a different instrument, like the ES or CL for example, just to verify that works?

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Thank you,

Looks like you have it set to fill data back to Saturday (9/7), so just go into data series and have it retrieve more days. Also, what session do you have it set for? If it's set for an RTH session, you won't be getting any new data until the session begins.

Cheers!

I think that's it. I have session template on default which is <Use Instrument setting>. I think if I change it to 24/7 should solve the problem. Thank you very much.

Unirenko bar

Hi Mike, this might off topic. I want to chart with Unirenko type of bars using a platform and can trade stock & forex at the same time with one broker. I don't know what would be a good combination - which platform with which broker. Could you give me some options? I have forex account with MB trading, I was told that if I want to trade stock using NT7 using MB trading, I have to switch account everytime I trade different instruments and need a multi license as well. Multicharts allow you to trade different account at the same time, does it have Unirenko kind of bar type?

Very new at trading and so much to learn. Love this community.

Thank you,

@VictorK:
Thanks for your input.
In CCI_EMA_v2 , what are set values you use for CCI & EMA? I see a default values of 14 & 13 in the indicator.
I also use trigger lines indicator similar to yours but not the larger period dotted lines( dark red & dark green lines) as shown in your chart. Can you send the link for this indicator with set parameters.
By the way I use the same trigger line and larger trigger lines with setting values 3 times more than smaller trigger lines for bigger picture view of the price action.
Regards,
Raj1

@Raj1

The CCI and EMA are both set at 11 in the chart, but could be set to any number between 8 and 14 depending on your time frame and how many signals you want to filter out.
The small triggers are 5 and 20 and the larger triggers are 4 times the small. They are from Fat Tails, so search for anaTriggerLines.

Victor

I'm not using uni renko bars and have them usually not installed, but found some interesting behavior

here's an example with point and figure and line break charts. both have a "base period value" in data series.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


after using uni renko, the "base period value" fields change into "tick open offset". I don't think it changes anything else than just the name.

like I said, I don't believe it has a negative impact on other bar types. just thought it was interesting.

Sylvester,

Thanks for showing us this issue. The UniRenko uses the P&F memory 'slots' to "cheat" NT into a new bar type.
I will investigate if there is a way to fix this when I have some spare time. But either bar should work correctly independent of the name displayed in the data series settings. Another thing you can do if that bothers you, is just change the name of those settings back in the UniRenko code (to be back the original P&F). You would just have to make the correlation mentally to enter the proper settings for the UniRenko bars.
