Favorite Bar Types

Interested to hear what folks their favorite bar types (or combo of) to trade from and why. Also, what about the bar type you think gives you an edge (best view of the market).

Examples - Time based (1min, 5min, 60min), Renko, Better Renko, Range, Point and Figure, Line Break, Custom made bar type.

Interested to know the sizes too.

Not sure if I put this post in the wrong section or that it is just not interesting.

My favorite bar types are 50 tick 3 Line Break Wicked, 4 Better Renko, and 5min chart.

Mostly scalping 5-10t at a time.

I can't find any threads on this topic that got off the ground so hopefully this one can be revived.

I only really have experience with time based charts so my opinion on my favorite bar type is probably fairly limited. For those of you using Range, Tick or Volume bar types, what do you find to be their advantages/disadvantages?

At first glance, Range/Tick/Volume charts seem to eliminate a lot of the noise you see on time based charts. But on the other hand, the noise you see on time based charts is sometimes very useful.

Thoughts?

Diversification is the only free lunch

nope, momentum bar types usually change size with more / less momentum.

I have a momentum bar type and it does not look anything like that in the same time frame.

Mine looks exactly the same with the minimum size and no variable expansion.

I don't have your bar type.
But if it is a true momentum bar type it should show 'momentum' in some way.
Here is a side-by-side comparison of the momentum bar and pointO bars I use FWIW.
