Why No Gap Range Bars

I copied this explanation from the download section for the no gap range bars.


This is a slightly modified version of NinjaTrader's Range Bars.

In NinjaTrader's Range Bars, the Open[0] of each bar equals Close[0].

In This version, the Open[0] of each bar equals Close[1] .

NinjaTrader's Range Bars set on a 4 tick range needs 5 ticks of movement to create a new bar.

This version set on a 4 tick range needs just 4 ticks of movement to create a new bar.

It closes the gaps in trending bars.

It also removes a 1 tick hash programmed into the chart when the market is moving sideways.

I think it makes for a cleaner chart.

I prefer range bars. If you do any automation or backtesting, the no gap range bars will not work because they open at the previous close and this will cause a 1 tick difference from reality.

Minute bars have gaps, I don't see why range bars shouldn't.

Slightly off topic but close. Gaps in data are part of life. If you backtest be sure you select a bartype that is based on the data as opposed to an artificial gaps or no gaps. Hopefully this makes sense. It does to me. Ha
