Tasker, so at a session break, on resume of a session, for the first bar, how is the previous Close calculated? As far as I understand, UniRenko uses previous Close as the point of all calculations.

Thanks and kindly

David

From my understanding of the code, the UniRenko bars are closed using either the greatest of the close and high or lowest of the close and low.

thisClose = maxExceeded ? Math.Min(close, barMax) : minExceeded ? Math.Max(close, barMin) : close;// thisClose is the minimum of BarMax and close (maxExceeded)

//### Close Current Bar
UpdateBar(bars, bar.Open, (maxExceeded ? thisClose : bar.High), (minExceeded ? thisClose : bar.Low), thisClose, time, volume, isRealtime);

Remove UniRenko?

I would greatly appreciate if someone could tell me how to remove UniRenko and BetterRenko bar types from NinjaTrader. I see them listed on the Bar Type menu under "Data Series," but nowhere else, anywhere, folders , etc...

1) Shutdown NinjaTrader
2) go to documents>NinjaTrader7>BIN>Custom>Type
3) Delete or move out of the folder, UniRenkoBarsType.cs and BetterRenkoBarsType.cs

When you start Ninja, they should be gone.

Tasker,

Thanks for your quick response. Neither of these files appear in my Type folder. Yet, these bar types are "stuck" in the "Custom 5" and "Custom 4" Period Type positions, respectively, and are "working" fine with no trace of them in any folder within NinjaTrader.

There is a cache folder. I can't remember specifically which one, but check that, and always make a backup of the files first if you aren't 100% sure of what you are doing. Make sure NT is closed when you modify the file system, then reopen it after.

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.

Yeah, what HE said. You may have to start/stop ninja a couple of times.

Thanks Big Mike,

There is nothing in the Cache Folder even remotely resembling "UniRenko" or "BetterRenko."

The caching doesn't work like that, if I recall you would need to delete the entire subfolder. Again, make sure you have a backup, or don't take my advice at all...

3) Delete or move out of the folder, UniRenkoBarsType.cs and BetterRenkoBarsType.cs

Tasker, Mike,

Just to close the loop on this, I went to NinjaTrader Support for help on this. I had, in the distant past, done essentially what Tasker had recommended. But, NinjaTrader didn't complete the process. It turns out that the UniRenko and BetterRenko chart types were still "stuck" in the NinjaTrader.Custom files. What they did was delete these files (NinjaTrader.Custom (XML) and NinjaTrader.Custom.dll (App Extension) located in the NinjaTrader>bin>Custom folder) by renaming them _.old for safety sake.

Once NinjaTrader was restarted, these files were recreated and the UniRenko and BetterRenko chart types were gone.

UniRenkoBarCloses rectangle


UnirenkoBarCloses.zip allows to view the posible close levels for the current unirenkobar.
I´m using two charts of same instrument; the first chart (see attached image) is a T4R20O11; the second is a T2R40O2.
The first chart is using the UnirenkoBarCloses indicator.


Could It be posible to have an indicator on the other chart that automatically / Programatically creates a rectangle each time a new bar is created in the left more chart (T4R20O11). The boundaries of the rectangle should be:
Upper line = UnirenkoBarCloses high
lower line = UnirenkoBarCloses low
left line = at the same position of the bar in T2R40O2 that touched the previous UnirenkoBarCloses high
right line = 20 or 30 bars to the right from left line.

I know that this could be done in a blink of an aye for the great programmers of this fórum, so I apreciate in advance the help you can provide.

Good trading to all.
