Renko Price Chart

The Renko Chart is a type of chart that plots only selected pip-movements by eliminating the impact of time.

 

What is a Renko Chart?

Renko comes from the Japanese word Renga which means brick. This type of charts is valuable for Swing Trend-Traders and Long Trend-Traders but not for common Day-Traders. The Renko Chart plots only selected pip-movements by eliminating the impact of time.

 

How a Renko Chart Works

Any price level plotted on a Renko Chart is based on a minimum pre-specified pip movement no matter the time.

Setting the Brick (pip movement)

The smaller the pip size, the more movements will be shown on a Renko Chart. On the other hand the larger the selected pip size the less movement will be shown.

◙ Usually, Forex Traders use ‘bricks’ between 3 and 16 pips but others may use bricks even 100 pips

◙ Stock Traders use usually ‘bricks’ that count 1.0% of the price of the stock
