A better kind of renko and possibly the best chart for day trading.

The median renko (a.k.a. mean renko or better renko) is a variation of the regular renko chart. This chart type features wicks and initial transposing of the new bar’s open value to the middle of the previous bar’s body (the median), thus smoothing the chart and eliminating noise, which would otherwise be present on indicators applied to the chart. Additionally the plug-in features a turbo renko style, adjustable retracement setting.

Smoother indicators and consistent values for the session…

In general, median renko charts are smoother looking, indicate the session’s exact highs an lows, plus they make indicators work a lot smoother. You may find this new chart to be the perfect balance between traditional renko an range charts.

The median renko plug-in for MT4 offers an optional feature, which ensures daily (or session) reference consistency. The trader can enable this by setting “resetOpenOnNewSession” to true (along with the session_start_MM and session_end_HH parameters).

The default settings of “0″ keep the daily open, low, high and close values¬†consistent with the actual values, which is very useful when you trade stocks, indexes or you want the weekend gap clearly visible on your charts.
