NinjaTrader 8 Strategy Builder -- Looking for Advice

I'm new to NinjaTrader 8 and I created a strategy for entries and exits on a chart that uses something similar to Renko Bars. I cannot get any results during backtesting. I must be missing something obvious in the setup and I'm hoping someone can tell me what it is. I attached the code here.

Strategy Builder Errors?

@greene828, Strategy Builder may be easier to trouble shoot with the actual strategy file. Unfortunately it appears you are using a custom bar type.

First thing I would do is try using a standard renko or Unirenko to confirm logic is correct for an entry. Attach the strategy file here and I will try to trouble shoot using SB and strategy analyzer and back test.

Some SB examples can be found:

NinjaTrader renko bars or UniRenko bars are not backtestable, because these bars show fake highs, fake lows and fake opens. Moreover they insert fake bars with zero volume to fill gaps.

If you tell us "something similar to Renko Bars", what exactly is it?
