Why do I need to refresh Renko Enchanced Charts, when I do not have to refresh plain Renko Charts. TY

Thank You for your quick response. May I ask why they are not supported and do you know of any other charting service that does support Renko Enhanced charts. Thanks again

OK, we thought that you understood that there is a Renko setting directly in Chart >> Chart Settings. This is what you want to use:

There is no need to use the Renko studies any longer.

Ok thanks, I just applied the setting. There were no setting before. So will Renko Enhance work now without constant refresh?

Yes. You should have no difficulties. You do not need the Renko Chart Enhanced study or any Renko study. Remove those from the chart.

Just make certain you have tick by tick data:

Hi again, Your Renko Charts do not look right. Your charts setting charts and the Renko study charts, that I must refresh, should look the same but the don't. Why? Your chart setting charts are showing multiple pivot unlike typical renko charts. TY

Hi, maybe my charts are outdated and I need to update to a newer version. I am using transact, because my chart setting charts are not renko charts. To many pivots, drawing bricks where typically they should not exist. I also can not adjust the time. TY

From User:
The chart below is a renko enhance STUDY using 90 min setting. This is what I was saying about having to refresh this chart. Without refreshing this chart would not look like this. But isn't nice? Your chart setting chart does not look like this. I also noticed on your chart setting chart I cannot change the time frame only the size of the bar. Is that correct?

The Renko in Ticks setting found in Chart >> Chart Settings produces very accurate Renko bars when used with tick by tick data.

The reason when using the Renko study that you probably have to perform a recalculation is because the underlying bars are 90 minutes. The Renko study is not going to function correctly with an underlying bar duration that long. There simply is no support for using a long time duration underlying bar.
