Kase and Range

hm, i do not see significant differences between the two types of bars (Kase and Range)

* If investing gets too difficult for a seventh grader to understand, the system is needlessly complex
* Markets produce an enormous volume of information, much of which is redundant
* In every game and con there's always an opponent, and there's always a victim. The trick is to know when you're the latter, so you can become the former

"I don't understand/see the benefit of Kase vs Range bars."

Well, since my mom doesn't get onto forums, I will explain the difference between the two.

First off, the bars are equal true range which counts any gaps between the previous barís close and the current high or low into the barís range Ė as opposed to simple range bars, which only account for the high-low range and leave out any gaps. Secondly, Kase Bars use only real data to form bars. Thus, if there are any gaps on the chart as opposed to filling the gap by creating bars using counterfeit data. And, if the minimum range between two ticks exceeds the target range, the actual minimum range is shown. This is in opposition to range bar methods, which forces bars to the exact target by inserting fake data. So for example, if two sequential prices were $10.1 and $10.2, Kaseís method, using a 5-cent range, does not put in fake data but would generate a 10-cent bar, since that is as close to the target as one can get with real data. Other methods would insert a false tick at 10.15 to break up the 10-cent bar into two 5ís.

Got questions? Just email me directly

Thanks for the explanation Dan and thanks to your Mom and your firm for daring to "think outside the box". Too few individuals venture there any longer and usually get chastised for it if they do.

I like the looks of the Kase Bars but find having to calculate them each day a bit of a problem. You will always be working on "yesterdays" ATR. Why not just use a bar that is perfectly consistent based on the real time price action of each chart?

You shouldn't have to check the ATR on a daily basis. Once a week, sure, but daily is a bit much.

Such a question belongs in the Vendor Reviews section, this thread is not meant to act as a place for reviews.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
