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.

@MWinfrey, a reminder this thread is not Elite, your attachment says "futures.io (formerly BMT) Elite" so wasn't sure if you realized this.

Mike

No I did not...never even occurred to me to check. Big Duh...I'll rename it in the morning and repost...

I renamed the SMA indicator that I posted yesterday. No change in content, just a rename.

In this thread, I am posting my Universal Renko bar type implementation.

Like most of the other advanced Renko bar types, the UniRenko bar open is artificial, so I consider it aesthetic only, and I do not use it in the bar size calculation. The bar calculations are based on the previous bar close. The tails on the bar show real prices.


Just checking out this bar type a little more. I think everyone here already realizes how it works.
It seems that having the Open Offset set at 1 gives the most accurate chart.

Multiple timeframe help

@monpere Really like you bar type and I am trying to use it an indicator that is multi timframe indicator. Can this bar type be used in a BarsArray style. I am running into an issue added it to the MTF indicator and am seeking some help

That bar type is Custom6 in my configuration

I have tried some of the following combinations

Add(PeriodType.Custom6, 4,2,12 );
or
Add(PeriodType.Custom6, T2R12O4 );

Thanks in advance.

Because the NT Add() method accepts one integer argument for the bar period, the additional user parameters necessary to customize the bar cannot be specified. Currently you can specify the Trend parameter as the 2nd argument in the Add() method, but the Reversal and Open parameters will be defaulted.

If/When I get some time this week, I will add some code to allow specifying all the bar parameters in one argument, so that the bar data can be fully specified in the Add() method.

To support Muti TimeFrame indicators/strategies using the Add() method, added an alternative way to specify all bar specs in the 'Tick Trend' parameter. You can now alternatively specify each parameter as 3 digits in the Data Series window 'Tick Trend' parameter or Add() method 'Period' parameter. For example to specify TickTrend=4 , TickReversal=8, OpenOffset=2 or (T4R8O2) then specify: 'Tick Trend'=004008002 in Data Series window, or Add(PeriodType.custom5, 004008002);' in your MTF code. The normal way of specifying the parameters will still work as well.
