Re: Renko bars incorrect after last MC update

I'm talking about price levels that were indeed traded and should be reflected in a renko with one or more briks.

If I enable phantom bars I will have briks with prices that were not traded.

Before the new version this was OK. Why is now wrong ?

Re: Renko bars incorrect after last MC update

Then in the second chart we can see the bar as 16:02 so the 16:01 bar was closed. However no red bricks were built.
The last red brick there is from 15:55. There should be there at least another three red bricks for a while.

Re: Renko bars incorrect after last MC update

And a final one.
See in first chart how the current bar is of 16:01 and price is 2055.50, well below 2058.75 which was last red brick.

After last update (9.1 - 11815) renko bars are not correctly built. Please see the example attached (ESZ5 futures - 1 minute - 1 point box size).

Re: Any way of reseting a indicator each session (intraday)

Thanks Henry but I don't see how this can be used to reset the indicator. If I have a chart of 1 minute and a simple moving average of 14 periods, Multicharts waits 14 bars to compute the moving average. I would like this to happen every day which means that if a new day starts now, the moving avera...

If I have a 1 minute chart with Parabolic SAR (or any other), can I reset the indicator at the begging of each session ?
