Renko chart generator
renko charting on a custom symbol chart
- accurate pricing to the tick
timeline (no future date projections)
- every renko variation in a single package
An Expert Advisor (EA) used to create custom Renko charts and provide real-time updates. This is an MT4 "offline" chart equivalent which is
very simple to use. All historical renkos are constructed using real tick data from the broker's server.
You can attach any MT5 compatible indicator or template to the renko chart and perform your technical analysis.
The EA enables creating custom live charts resembling Median Renko, Mean Renko, Turbo Renko, and Better Renko candles as well as Vanilla Renko and Renko with wicks, PointO charts and many more.
