IS there a Renko chart that is fully operational yet?
the following thread has not been updated since September and the renko chart still crashes when trying to change the box size or the time frame.

Alert look nice. Good work!

I have some questions. I have my Renkos set on the 1-minute chart for 20 pips.
1) When I hover over a Renko and the time underneath is, say, 05:40 am, is that the time when the Renko candle BEGAN to form or when it STOPPED forming?

2) What's the difference between a setting of "1-minute chart 20 pips" versus "5-minute chart 20 pips"? Does the first one check every minute to see if there's been 20 pips of movement and the second one check every 5 minutes?

I set the alert for several pairs. I got email notifications for EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDJPY and USDCAD, but the "Events" tab only lists the very first signal I got. The other 3 signals from tonight aren't listed.
3) Why is only the first signal I received (EURUSD) listed in the "Events" tab?

Also, one of my pairs didn't signal, but should have (the AUDUSD). The settings for all alerts are exactly the same.
4) Why didn't the AUDUSD give a signal?

For reference, below are the times that appear when I hover under a candle and when my email notification appeared. (The EUR and JPY email notifications seem late.)
EURUSD: 3:31 4:02
GBPUSD: 5:40 5:42
USDJPY 5:06 5:48
USDCAD 7:44 7:44

Is this tab why I only got a signal for the Euro? The label for this tab makes it sound like it is only about Euro signals.

Can we add one MA to this alert that's based on the Renko3 bars? It should alert buy if above the MA, sell if below the MA.

Thanks in advance!

I'm willing to pay $25 US Dollars via Paypal to whoever gets this done and it works after I test it.

Thanks in advance!

Why can't we get this simple change done? Is it possible? If so, it seems like it would only take five minutes for one of the experts.

Thanks in advance.
