“Pure” Renko strategy

“Pure” Renko strategy

Hello everyone,  

Do you remember my work on the RENKO ?    

From this indicator, we will try a very simple strategy.

The simplest is the “PURE” Renko.

For the definition of the Renko, I refer you to other sites that explain it very well.

We go LONG if : we have 2 “bullish” Renko bricks in the same direction.

We go SHORT if : we have 2 “bearish” Renko bricks in the same direction.  

So we are constantly on the market. We are just following the trend.

Here is the result of the backtest, on the DAX : H1 graphs (no matter, because the important thing is the size of the Renko bricks), Renko size : 40 points, Spread: 1 point, test “tick by tick”.

As you can see, the strategy is profitable. Low success rate, compensated by some highly winning trades.

I think there’s plenty of way for improving this strategy idea, adding refined entry rules, a breakeven, a trend filter, and so on.

And one can test this strategy on the forex with other sizes of bricks.

Here is the code (very simple, but the indicator words well also) :

    Good job, but I think there is something wrong in the description since trade direction is changing with only 1 contrarian renko brick in your code.

    Running a single Renko strategy with a fixed box size is usually not a good idea, because the results depend extremely on

    1. the box size, and 2. on the initial value of the first box.

    So, if Renko strategies should be useful, they must be used as statistical “grates”, that is, using many combinations of box sizes and initial positions of the first box at the same time. Then it is possible to get good results over the sum of all parameter sets, and purely accidental results are avoided.

    In principle, this holds for all “optimized” (curve-fitted) strategies as well, but in Renko charts there is the additional complication of the exact value of the first box that determines the behavior of all the rest.
