Not Sure what the " X " means there on the File, But most likely i did something wrong, let me know and i will try and get it uploaded correctly, my first time trying to share a Template.

Hi @sandptrader

Thanks for sharing your template with other futures.io (formerly BMT) users. You did nothing wrong, the "x" in the attached file description I believe just indicates you have uploaded an ".xml" file. Had you uploaded a ".doc" file than a "w" icon would appear indicating it is a MS Word file extension.

Thanks for sharing,

Sean

here is my attempt to load the Template i use, hopefully i did this correctly.
a few words on this Template:
Its Not the Holy Grail, there is not such a system that i know of.
I use this Chart setup along side other Renko size charts such as 3, 4 and 10 Renko bar size with this Renko 7 size, all with their own dedicated chart.
Also i do use minute charts from 1 minute up to Daily to scan through to make my decisions for Trades.
My suggestion is to build Individual Charts for each time frame and leave the Size bars alone, Not changing them for that chart during the day.
Please Test this type of Charting out before making Live Trades, Observe the Renko Charts compared to Minute type Charts.

Sandptrader, just wanted to tell you thanks for the template. Thanks, Hector

Hello,

THis could help someone, it is an strategy based on BRNs or Big Round Numbers, it is based on a Renko chart of 3 but you can use it as better suits you, for me i trade the 3 and 4 Renko charts, anyway, it is quite profitable, i use it all the time, wanted to share this with you,

what you need:

Renko 3 Chart,

Round Numbers indicator
TDI indicator
Stochastic indicator with the settings of 3,8,3.
Current day OHL
Prior day OHLC
Heiken Ashi
ATM Swing (Not necessary but useful)


I have attached the template for this strategy.

LONG Entry Setup:

1. a MUST with the TDI Indicator: The price line (Green) have to cross up the signal line (red) BUT BOTH lines HAVE to be ABOVE the Bollinger Average (Yellow).

2. Stochastic Below 20 and Crossing upwards.

3. Be around a Big Round Number (00,20,50,80) or a Mid Number (10,35,65,90)

4. Stop loss at previous swing lows.

5. Target Profit at next 1 or 2 levels of BRNs.


Any question please feel free to ask.

JD.

Cheers.

Hello all,


Today we have the expected number of NFP, it is expected to come at a 114k, if the number is higher above 120K will see the price on Oil could rise, as consumption will rise too.

be aware of this news. at 8:30 am EST.

Hello,

I just closed my first round trade, it was for 20+ ticks. probably will take one or two more trades depending on market reaction and movement, but for now, i could say that ended the week with a good amount of ticks in the pocket.

The system and strategy works almost to the perfection.

Im trying not to be greedy, and keep profits in the right side (my account and bank)

Cheers.
