Charts data - "RenkoChartSuite/Charts/"
Export data - "RenkoChartSuite/Export/"
Load the expert and select your offline chart period. Your selected chart should open automatically.
Load the panel indicator on the offline chart and enable "Allow DLL import" only on 1 panel.
If you autotrade be sure to check if your chart is getting ticks from the ea. If not hit the "Apply" button or select a preset.
All buttons are 2-way clickable - left = down, right = up.
Settings that automatically get applied are: preset(1-6), wicks, gaps, symmetric, default and reset.
"Default" loads the program default settings.
"Reset" loads the last applied settings..
Under the buttons 1-6 are your presets located.
The panel is programmed with default values for the different chart types.
To overwrite a preset with your personal settings press the "+" button so it lights up as in the picture above.
Select the number you want to store your settings too.
To reset a preset to the default values simply select the number and press the "-" button.
When you change settings across the board you will see the the numbers go on or off. This is because it will try
to match your current settings with one of the presets.
open or close a chart:
You can open or close an offline chart from one panel.
Change the "period" and or the "currency" input and click the "Apply" button to open or
the "x"(close button) to close.
Avarage True Range Renko:
There are 2 options to select with the ATR.
- Startup: Calculate ATR boxsize on ea startup or when you change settings.
- Dynamic: Calculate ATR boxsize on a new bar of the selected ATR timeframe.
- minimum allowed ATR boxsize.
- maximum allowed ATR boxsize.
- Minimum difference in the current boxsize - ATR for recalculating the new ATR boxsize.
The step is also used for rounding the ATR boxsize.
When you select a timeframe and your history is out of date or not loaded yet, wait a few seconds
and click "Apply" button again.
Export to .csv:
Simple export function to create a .csv file where the time gets replaced with 1 minute timeframe so
that it can be imported in the MT4 history center. The .csv file is saved in the export folder (see above).
Scaling the panel:
A convenient button for people who have trouble reading the values on the panel.
The scale button is 2-way clickable.
Left - scale down
right - scale up
Changing the default.css file.
When you load the panel for the first time the "default.css" file will be saved in the main program folder (see above) .
- Don`t change the panel object names.
- If you break the panel simply delete the default.css file and reload template.
! Both updates need to be downloaded.
! If you have an old version installed you need to delete the" user_presets and the default.css" from your RenkoChartSuite folder.
