In this thread we discuss Renko trading strategies and share our trading systems, indicators and EAs. There are a few Renko trading EAs in Post 1. Some of them are based on the idea of FF members, some based on mine. I used to make money using Renko MA EA with re-optimizing the EA at the end of every week (to get the best input settings for trading the next week), but I no longer use any of the Renko EAs in Post 1. Currently I am forward testing a few new Renko EAs based on other strategies. If I have something promising (to be profitable) and want to share it, I will post it here.

How to create a Renko chart and attach a Renko Trading EA to the chart:

1. Download the Renko chart builder EA (that all my Renko trading EAs need it) from Post 1 of this thread.
2. Open a M1 chart of your selected symbol (for this example, EURUSD).
3. Attach "MathTrader7_RenkoChartCreatorEA.ex4" EA to the M1 chart with the default settings (or adjust them according to your preference) and wait until you see the message "Open offline chart..." on the chart. With the default settings the Renko brick size is 100 points and the Renko chart will be created as a M2 offline chart of the selected symbol. In our example with EURUSD, the message will be "Open offline chart EURUSD,M2 (100 points)".
NOTE: From version 1.50 of the Renko chart builder EA, it automatically opens the Renko chart for you. If you use the previous versions, you have to click on the "Open Offline" option of "File" menu and then locate for EURUSD,M2.
4. Now, attach a Renko trading EA, for example "MathTrader7_RenkoMA_EA.ex4" to the offline chart, EURUSD,M2.
5. Make sure that "Auto Trading" button on MT4 platform is active.

How to backtest?
In the following link there is a method of backtesing Renko EAs:
http://www.forexfactory.com/showthread.php?t=572375
NOTE: I do not use above method to backtest my Renko EAs. I have my own way of doing so.

Thread Rules:
1. In this thread we only discuss Renko TRADING strategies, indicators, and EAs. We do NOT discuss Renko chart builders. I will IGNORE anyone write any irrelevant post here.
2. You post any commercial link (directly or indirectly) and that would be your last posts.
3. TBD.

I'm really liking Renko and have done for a while. I am currently playing with an EA that has some success but what I would like to add to it is the ability to only take a trade if the previous bar formed in Less than X minutes. The idea being that when the market is moving really slowly, trades won't be taken, as it is more likely to move horizontally rather than vertically. Unfortunately my programming skills are very limited so any tips on how to do that Mathtrader would be very much appreciated.

I was thinking about a similar approach for scalping a few pips. However, there is a major problem with this approach: if the price jumps up/down greater than one Renko block size, there will be no chance to open a position in the middle of price jump (=open of a Renko candle).

Thats always the way, but I am using usually 4 pip (40 point) bars. Up until this week the markets have been swinging up and down quite nicely but this week they have been much more rangey. When this happens the bars take longer to form, typically half an hour plus. So what I want to do is, if the previous bar has formed in less than say ten minutes trade. If not, don't.
The time thing is not they system, just a qualification of the system

Hello Math,

Thanks for your EA. I was just manipulating the parameters thereof to see it's performance. I have changed my renko size to a much much more smaller value just for trying purposes.

I kinda notice that the EA does not take trades.

Here is Version 1.00 of the EA that opens a position in the direction of the previous Renko bar if that bar forms between a user specified minimum and maximum minutes.MathTrader7_RenkoMaxEA.ex4
Note: The EA has not been tested yet. Use it on a demo account first.

I just looked at the code of this indicator. It just draws up/down arrows at the cross between a MA(5,Simple,Close) and a MA(5,Simple,Open). However it repaints the arrow at the current bar (which has not been closed yet). Regardless of a poor implementation of the idea, we can react to (i.e., trade) the arrows appear on the second previous bar (which has been closed). What would be the performance of this strategy, I don't know. But as one can expect from a MA cross strategy, it would be probably profitable in a trending market. I may give it a try to back test it automatically.

This indicator recalculates the bands and fits them to the past. Simply put, it repaints. Let's skip it!

I start this thread for those who are a big fan of trading on renko charts. Here we will discuss Renko trading strategies together. We will share our trading systems, indicators and EAs. --- Renko EA --- Here I will upload the latest version of (and any further updates to) the EA I developed for the strategy described in the thread "Lets Automate a Simple Renko Strategy!". Version 3.36:{file}
MartTrader7, First and foremost i want to let you know that i(we) really appreciate your good work here
please i have this EA specifications in mind

1) Entry point : when 2 bricks of the same colours are formed

2) Exit point: when 1 brick of the opposite colour is formed

3) Lots size should be user define

4) Stop Loss: the wick of the first brick before entry point and option to insert manually specific level of stop loss

5) Up to two trades in an entry point, the first trade closes at a specific target of pips (user defined)
while the last trade and remaining trade moves stops to breakeven or exit at the close of 1 brick opposite colour( which ever come first)

6) EA should have an option for broker time

7) sound alerts when trades are taken, breakeven or closed

8) EA should have an option for MA filter like the last EA version(3.36)

Thank you very much as you will code this
