  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

what I don't like about these bar types are the artificial bars that it adds just to make the picture seem uniform,

the easiest way I could prove this, is to suggest charting DX (a thin traded contract) on 2 different bar intervals, such as 1min, and then, say 37 tick, and see the gaps,

then do the same on Unirenko 2, or even down to 1 (that means on every tick change) and see how perfect the stair step pattern shows, almost similar to this YM chart

renko is artificial bars. There is no way around this fact.

Thats what I like about FlexRenko is that the charts look nice and takes out a lot of noise. As they have the true high and low I se no problem with using them. But the best part is that they are not time bars and only on price. Time is due to my opinion of nu use in intraday trading. They only ad noise to the chart in a slow sideways market. With FlexRenko you dont get any new bars in that kind of market. Regards Outlander

PM


I got a PM today and after I answered it I thought it would be best if I post some of the answers to clear things out for all looking at my posts. The question I got was that it seems like I always make good trades and if they are live or sim. I am not some kind of market wizard with a crystal ball but I wish I had one. So I am trying to use Flex Renko as my crystal ball and it does not always give me the right answers. As I wrote in my first post my goal was to talk about how to use Flex Renko and not show how good trader I am. I am a small time trader with health problems that forced me to sell my company and retire. I live on my farm that I got from my father. I am 60 years old and have lived on the farm almost all of my life. So day trading is my hobby and keep me busy during the days. Flex Renko is quite new in Sierra so I am still getting used to it. The first time I looked at these new bars I thought it was junk and no use. I had used Renko in the past and liked them so I looked at these strange bars again and decide to try them on. At the moment I only trade YM and EMD live. All other chart are in sim mode. So I appalogize if I got people of this site thinking I was a market wizard. I ahev loosing day like the rest of us.
Regards Outlander
