Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • 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.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Tasker_182,

Thanks for responding to consider to my request.

I don't have a preference as long as it works with other indies.

I always appreciate for your help and valuable time.

Cheers,

wahn

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)

spec for uni


Not sure if this question has been asked but the 'default' for the UniRenko bar is as follows:

Tick Trend: 2
Tick Reversal: 4
Tick Open Offest: 2

This default works well with some contracts (ES) but leads to a little too much chop in other contracts (TF). Just wondering if anyone has figured out the best spec's for the following contracts:

ES
EMD
GC
CL
ZN
6E
ZB
NQ
TF
YM

thanks

The best specs are what works for your eye and trading style. Myself I like the 1 tic increment. I also like to have multiple time frames or in this case multiple bar sizes for each instrument. So for me, I use T1R1909, T1R904 and T1R402. I trade 6E, 6J and TF.

I want to add UniRenko bar type to existing MTF indicator as secondary series, unlike regular tick bar type which require only one period parameter, UniRenko requires three (Trend, Reversal, Offset), and this cannot be done in the regular way.

The format is in this thread. Try searching for "Custom5".

UniRenko settings for 6e

First let me say again thank you to the author of the UniRenko Bar. I use it for all of my trading as it shows the price action of any instrument very well I think. I scalp the 6e and have found the settings of 1/1/2 and 1/1/3 to be very good for scalp trading the 6e. 1/1/4 can also be good if you are trying to clear up some of the chop.

I was curious and tried the settings 1/1/3 and it seems to reveal a bug. I noticed a difference with a regular time based chart so I compared 2 settings using this bar type. The same swing low that occured around 10:16am EST shows a difference of one tick on the NQ. See picture:

Unirenko


Im a big fan of the unirenko bartype. Are they only available for NT or is it possible to use them for other platforms, too? Here i would be interested to use them on dukascopy, but how? Is tehre a way to program them as an indicator like it works for Mt4/ MT5? Can someone do that here? Thanks!
