Traded crude oil today.
Didn't look at the YM until the end of the day and there were no signals.
The 5 day average true range on the YM is 220 tics and the CL's is 503 tics.
So, I don't think it takes a trading genius to figure out that it's a whole lot easier to snag a few tics out of the CL's day as opposed to the YM's day.
Crude had 2 nice trades in the morning that I caught and one at the end of the session that I did not.
I find I am not looking at the renko chart as much as I used to. I am concentrating
(concentrating may be overstating it says the man who loves rain) more on the minute charts instead. Once a market really gets moving the renko will show an entry quicker than waiting for a minute bar to close. Maybe then they will still have some value for me.
Right now the markets are not moving quickly.
Could also be that the renko chart only has magic white arrows, which when compared to the magic blue bars are rather passé.
