Renko trading strategy .............

Well I thought I would go ahead and give this a shot to see if I can make this work.

My strategy is simple and requires very little time to implement though I do study the charts quite a lot.

CL and ES lend themselves very well to the strategy so I concentrate on those two for the most part.

Here is an example of a good trade. Entry was on the retracement of the renko bar and TP is 2 to 1 reward to risk.

I will elaborate more on this later.

A little more about the strategy..............


The strategy is really very simple.

Reward to risk target is 2 to 1...... I am looking to take small high probability bites out of the market.
At some point I hope to be able to capture some runners but until then I will maintain the small disciplined trades.

I use Renko charts of either 5 tick or 10 tick bricks with tails displayed.

Session traded is the morning and I will take a look at the mid-day if I am around.

Even taking small bites can add up significantly when you add size.
This CL spreadsheet is an example.

A helpful video.

This video has probably helped more than just about any other thing I have watched.

Do you trade multiple setups? The first screenshot looks like you were trading into a test of previous high whereas the second one looks like a failed breakout/double top. Interested in learning more about your strategy.

I'm not quite sure what you are looking at but in answer to your question ... Yes there are 2 methods I have to trade Renko.
And that does get me into a little trouble at times.... One of my weaknesses I still have to deal with.


Method 1.........Continuation trade.
With renko there is a high probability of the following brick continuing in the same direction as the previous brick direction.
Reward to risk is 1 to 2.... Not the best RR.

Method 2.........Retracement trade.
Place entry at the open of previous bar.... Reward to risk is 2 to 1

Understood. How do you qualify entries? I imagine you would get killed in ranges if you entered every single continuation trade, no?

Entries are brick color dependent.
And yes...... Ranges could absolutely destroy you, but that is where your trade management come in.
The power of quitting........ 2 losses and DONE for the day.
