Renko chart is a popular tool to trade with the price action in Forex and Stock market. We created a powerful tool called Smart Renko for Price Action Trader. Here we will explain how to use Smart Renko Chart in brief. Smart Renko is a hybrid tool between renko chart and candlestick chart. Smart Renko provides the spread view of the renko bricks on the candle stick chart and then it also keeps the normal renko chart on the bottom. The advantage of Smart Renko is that you can use the analysis of renko chart together with the analysis of candlestick chart at the same time. You can get the best out of the both world.
The important point before using any Renko chart is about the brick height. This also appies to the Smart Renko Chart too. Just like normal renko chart, Smart Renko chart need to decide the good number for brick height. From my experience, you can the brick height near the 1 standard deviation. However, you must use the brick height in the round number because standard deviation might come in decimal numbers. So be sure to round up those decimal numbers into good integer numbers.
Another consideration is that your brick height should be in the factor of 100 or 1000 pips for your trading. That is like 5, 10, 20, 25, 50, 100, etc. From my experience, these factored number can serve better for your brick height. If you do not choose sensible brick height, then you might not able to see anything on your charts. So be sure to choose the sensible brick height.
Finally do not forget that in Smart Renko, your analysis in Renko chart can be transferred to Main chart by double clicking over the Trend lines.
