Renko Expert Advisors

Trading News
Two Metatrader renko expert advisors made to build renko charts and also to trade renko bricks..
- Create offline renko charts with custom (M) names, such as M2, M3, M4 (but not the default M1, M5, M15, M30)
- Continuously update these renko charts so the trader can trade manually or attach an expert advisor that trades automatically
- Trade with the (PSAR) trend, open/close trades based on renko brick color
The Renko Charts EA is a MetaTrader expert advisor that allows the creation and use of the renko bars charts in Metatrader. As an experienced trader you probably know that the MT4 doesn’t have renko bars, its defaults being candlesticks, lines and bar charts.
The Renko Trader EA is a Metatrader expert advisor that can trade renko bricks. This EA has a trend detector and can be instructed to buy only in uptrend, or sell in downtrend. It comes with the possibility to use a fixed lotsize or a percentage of the free margin to open the trades, and all the other trade management features that traders use: break-even, stop-loss, take profit, trailing stop etc.
A renko bricks chart generated by the RobotFX Renko expert advisor
In the picture above there is an example of a renko chart generated by RobotFX Renko EA, with some indicators attached. Renko charts being made of price bars they do not depend on the time, like the other chart types. However, you can choose (in the chart's Properties) to display the period separators, to get a better understanding of the daily price movement (volatility).
Renko Chart
- BarSize - this is the number of pips that the renko bars will have, basically their length
- BarOffset - the offset of the renko bars
- TimeFrame - the name of the renko chart (2 will create the renko chart named M2, 55 M55 and so on)
- ShowWicks - whether or not to show the wicks (spikes) on the renko bars
- EmulateOnLineChart - makes possible to change to line chart, on the renko chart
- BuildChartOffline - makes possible to generate the renko chart while offline
- ATR Bars Settings - these are self explanatory and, if UseATRBars is set to true, the expert advisor will generate the renko bars based on the ATR (average true range) settings of your choice and - if set to true - its moving average. Mind that, if these are enabled, the EA will ignore the fixed BarSize value in pips
Renko Trader
- MagicNumber - assign a unique number to trades opened by this EA so they can be managed by other EAs or allow this EA to manage trades opened by other EAs
- Enable Lot Size as % of Free Margin - Whether or not to use a percentage of the Free Margin to open the next first trade
- Lotsize as % of Free Margin - the size of the first opened trade as percentage of Free Margin, if the Lot Size Management (above) is enabled - LotSize as Fixed Value - the size of the first opened trade, if the Lot Size Management is set to false
- Stoploss Buffer (adds to high/low of brick) - the default stop-loss is the highest/lowest of the previous two bricks; add a buffer (pips) and the stoploss will be this distance further from the brick's low/high
- Take Profit (pips) - Take profit distance in pips.
- Trailing Stop (pips) - the distance the price has to move in your favor, for the expert advisor to move the stop-loss
- BreakEven (pips) - the distance the price has to move in your favor, for the expert advisor to trail the stop-loss
- Slippage (pips) - distance allowed for the price to move from the open/close/trail order to the execution
- Avoid trading consolidation zones - in case of consolidation zones formed by one bricks (1 up, 1 down and so on), set to true to ignore trading entries
- Close trade/s at renko change - whether or not to close opened trade/s when the renko brick changes color/direction
- Minimum profit (0 = disabled) - set to a positive value and the renko EA will close the trade at renko change only if its profit reached this minimum profit
- Follow PSAR trend - whether or not to trade with the trend
- PSAR step, maximum - PSAR indicator settings to determine the trend
- Swing Zone Bars - the number of bars to determine the swing zone’s highs and lows)
- Pips Away From Last Swing (0 = swing zone disabled) - EA will open new trades only if the trading signal occurs this number of pips away from the last swing in the direction of the trend. Set to 0 to ignore the swing zone confirmation
- Martingale Multiplier - set to any positive value is you want the renko EA to multiply the lotsize of the next trade, after closing a losing trade
Before you load the Renko EA on the chart it is recommended that you switch to the M1 time-frame and uncheck the auto-scroll box. Then keep pressing the Page Up button on your keyboard so the chart will scroll back a few months to load the history data needed. You might also need to change the Metatrader's settings to allow it to generate larger charts. By default, the Renko EA will build renko charts of 10 pips bar size, however the trader can change the renko bar length with any other value (in pips), or use the automatically calculated ATR bars.
Don’t close the chart where the renko expert advisor is attached because the EA generates the renko brick chart continuously depending on the price movement.
After the expert advisor loads on the M1 chart and creates the offline renko chart (default timeframe is M2), 'how to use' instructions will appear on the left corner of the M1 chart; MetaTrader (and the renko expert advisor) must allow automatic trading. Now click the menu File > Open Offline and choose the M2 chart of the trading instrument where the renko EA is attached.
Any other timeframe name can be chosen for the renko chart, but make sure that it is not one of the Metatrader’s default timeframes (ie not 1, 5, 15, 30, 60 etc).
