Renko FXT Builder

FXT Builder is a bunch of scripts, which generate high precision testing data for non-standard charts. With a tick data on input it creates non-standard chart in the tester format, and allows testing strategies on those charts. A very simple settings lets the user choose basic test chart options. The chart is precise and eliminates virtual trades on price gaps. The script can be used as a standalone tool when a fixed-spread data is satisfactory, but it also has an option for variable spread format for use with Birt's Data Suite launcher. The enhanced tools are available for registered Omnia series users for free up to the chart length of 10 thousands candles (unregistered users up to 2 thousand candles). Limit are completely removed with a commercial license key.

    thanks for your reply.

    but still have one problem, tickstory didn’t saved just in one file (.cvs) , but in many files(for every day apart ). so, i can’t generate one single file…do you know how to solve this?

      Try to export the tick file as shown in the guide.

    sorry, Tickstory had an error and for this I had this problem.

    I have done all steps and successfully back tested my EA.

    But why it shows modelling quality n/a ?

    • Milan August 11, 2016 at 7:54 pm - Reply

      Not a faintest idea, why it shows n/a when running directly in MT4, while it displays 99% with support of the commercial TDS launcher. If you needed the 99% number printed in reports for any reason, you would need to buy the TDS I am afraid.

    I’m using the script following the guide But Im having some problems. Lot of times the FXT files are created with a size of 111kb and I’m not able to execute the offline testing because it seems that the file has no data. I’ve repeated the process with other timeframes and other metatrader instances ( build 988) and I achieve to create a valid FXT very rarely.
    On the other hand I bought a licence of Renko Bar indicator, is there any way to actívate the 10.000 candle option with my licence

      Hello Albilen, activating the 10k option requires the current (210+) version of RenkoBar, please check if you are using it.
      For the other problem, please contact me using the Contact Form, I did not encounter similar problem yet.

    Hello MIlan,

    I prefer using range bars, but I cannot see any mention about using FXT Builder for these type of bars bars. Is it possible to use the Renko FX Builder for range bars please?

    • Milan August 17, 2016 at 1:18 pm - Reply

      Hello Jamie, the FXT builder for range bars is in my plans, and it should be available by the end of the current month.

    Hello Milan, I look forward to back testing my range bar strategies soon then. Thank you.

    What means TDS launcher?

    • Milan August 21, 2016 at 9:12 am - Reply

      TDS is a 3rd party tool for MT4, adding ability to test strategies with random slippage and variable spread. The hack is enabled by starting a modified MT4 executable instead of the usual terminal.exe, which is called a launcher.

    Hi Milan,
    Is there any option to increase the 10.000 bars limit. If it’s not possible, Is there any way to merge the fxt/hst files to create a new one ?
    I would like to create backtests with several years and with pairs as GBPUSD /EURUSD Im able to work with 3 or 4 years deppending on the renko block size

    yesterday i bought the fxt builder and i got a licencse via email but i still have the restriction of 2000 bars. How can i solve this problem

    • Milan November 17, 2016 at 9:27 pm - Reply

      Hello Patrick,
      not sure what the problem is, the http log looks fine for your license purchased 10 days ago. The script requires internet connection for running behind 2000 bars, please check if you are not disconnected during starting the script.

    Hi there is still have the restriction of 2000 bars. I do have internetconnection but still the restriction. Please give me a solution so i can work around that restriction

    • Milan November 23, 2016 at 7:00 pm - Reply

      Hello Patrick, according to the records you have purchased the RenkoBar license, which would allow 10000 test bars on those computers, which have the RenkoBar indicator registered. But if you intended to use FXT Builder script rather than RenkoBar, please contact me via the Contact form. Thank you.

    How do i get Renko FXT Builder without wicks?

    • Milan January 24, 2017 at 8:52 am - Reply

      Hello Anders, there isn’t any. However I may add the feature in the next release if you feel it makes any sense (trade entry/exit might be often displayed outside the candle).
