@DCB
You have another bar type which is conflicting with unirenko

Do not let a LOOSING TRADE determine to trade again UNLESS loosing trade is NOT DUE TO MISTAKE

Ok I downloaded the new one from the link @trs3042 provided. Put it in 'Type' folder. But I still do not see it in that dropdown menu.

Go here to download. Import like normal.

I think perhaps you need to edit the code and change the bar type location to a "Custom#" address that is available on your Ninja.

There are 10 Custom locations (0-9) and 4 or 5 Finals (1-4). First find your empty locations (there is an indicator on futures.io (formerly BMT) that will report your empty custom locations). Then edit the code and copy it in Type folder.

Cheers!

Thanks yeah I think this is the issue - I have one computer where I do trade and the other is for fiddling with different things, i installed it no problem on my work computer but having issues on the fiddling one so I think I can sort it out now.

Thanks alot!

the indicator mentioned above is here:

another possibility is to go to data series and then right click in period type:

MTF UniRenko

Hi,

Has anyone attempt to implement UniRenko in a MTF strategy? I've discovered some weirdness and wondered if anyone had any ideas. The strategy is based on two bar series, both UniRenko; COBC=false. I want to calculate the Primary bar series on the tick level but for the secondary I have specified:

if (BarsInProgress == 1 && FirstTickOfBar)

to simulate COBC=true for the secondary bar series.

I have no issues with the primary data series however when I attempt to use, say, Closes[1][1] for the Secondary data series I get the correct values with the Print statement however a simple statement like:

if (Closes[1][1] < Closes[1][2])

seems to be ignored. I've used that exact statement as a condition to fire an order and even though the secondary series is printing the opposite (I brought up a second chart of the secondary time frame) the order is still executed. I purposely excluded Closes[1][0] as I am aware that Ninja can truncate the last bar of the smaller time frame in real-time MTF.

Just wondering if anyone has any experience with this? BTW: If I swap out the UniRenko for any other period type, minute, tick, volume, even a commercial Renko implementation, the script works as expected. BTW: I'm doing all my testing in market replay. I'm aware of issues with high speed testing so I've allowed this to crawl along at 1X speed around the time I know a false positive should appear.

Thanks in advance.

Hi WolfieWolf, I use UniRenko in a multi-time frame strategy and I have no issues as you describe. Please make sure that you have the latest version, because there were some problems with the earlier one. I had run-time problems with the earlier version.

Essentially this is a brick displaying a point and figure. Looks better than a O and X's board. Thanks for sharing I find it a very useful view of price action.

Thanks for the info, I'm using version 4 according to the futures.io (formerly BMT) download section. Can you confirm this is the latest version? Thanks.

Yes, I believe that v. 4 is the latest, correctly-functioning version
