Hey everyone,

Is anyone familiar with a chart comparison tool? Example: what renko setting would be closet to a 5min/200tick chart?

Thank you

@Abusamjad91, be surprised if anyone tried to sell or market that type of tool as it would likely be very complex. At times a 200 tick chart could take seconds if it is a stop run and then during overnight trading it could take minutes to hours.

None, really.

As @jmont1 said, sometimes a tick chart will be very, very fast, other times super slow. This is because a tick chart depends on the number of trades being made. In busy times, such as right at the open and several minutes after, there will be a huge number of bars, but the 5 minute chart will not even complete just one. You can't expect the time and the tick bars to have any equivalence that isn't just momentary. The ratio will change, and not by a predictable number.

Renko is worse, because they depend only on the number of ticks that make up a bar. You can get a near-instantaneous surge of many, many renko bars during periods of sudden strong swings, and they can put you to sleep during periods of low change.

The bars do not have any reliable equivalence, because they measure different things, and the relations between those things will change, somewhat non-predictably, depending on activity.
