# RenkoChart

RenkoChart[{{date1, p1}, {date2, p2}, ...}]
makes a Renko chart with prices at date .

RenkoChart[{"name", daterange}]
makes a Renko chart of closing prices for the financial entity over the date range daterange.

RenkoChart[{...}, s]
makes a Renko chart with brick height of fraction s of the average price.

## Details and OptionsDetails and Options

• RenkoChart displays as a sequence of bricks and is used to track price movement; neither time nor volume is included.
• A Renko chart is drawn as a series of fixed-height bricks. A brick is drawn in a new column when the price rises above the top of the previous brick or drops below the bottom of the previous brick, by a fixed amount.
• RenkoChart[...] is equivalent to RenkoChart[..., {"Relative", 0.1}, 1] for a brick height of 10% of the high minus low price range.
• The following arguments can be used to specify the brick height s:
•  {"Relative",p} fraction of high minus low price (default) {"Absolute",p} absolute price change
• The dates are considered an ordered sequence of events and are not shown on an absolute time scale.
• The date formats for are the same as used in DateListPlot.
• The and daterange are the same as used in FinancialData.
• Data elements for RenkoChart can be given in the following forms:
•  {datei,pi} a pure date-price pair wi[{datei,pi},...] a date-price pair and wrapper formi->mi a date-price pair with metadata
• A brick may represent several date-price pairs, and the corresponding wrappers will apply to the entire brick.
• Data not given in these is taken to be missing and typically is excluded when generating the chart.
• Data for RenkoChart can be given in the following forms:
•  {e1,e2,...} list of elements with or without wrappers w[{e1,e2,...}] wrapper applied to the whole data
• The following wrappers can be used for data elements:
•  Annotation[e,label] provide an annotation Button[e,action] define an action to execute when the element is clicked EventHandler[e,...] define a general event handler for the element Hyperlink[e,uri] make the element act as a hyperlink Labeled[e,...] display the element with labeling PopupWindow[e,cont] attach a popup window to the element StatusArea[e,label] display in the status area when the element is moused over Style[e,opts] show the element using the specified styles Tooltip[e,label] attach an arbitrary tooltip to the element
• In RenkoChart, Labeled and Placed allow the following positions:
•  Top,Bottom,Left,Right,Center positions within bricks Above, Below, Before, After positions outside bricks {{bx,by},{lx,ly}} scaled position in the label at scaled position in the brick
• RenkoChart has the same options as Graphics, with the following additions and changes:
•  AspectRatio 1/GoldenRatio overall ratio of width to height Axes True whether to draw axes ChartBaseStyle Automatic overall style for bricks ChartElementFunction Automatic how to generate raw graphics for bricks ChartElements Automatic graphics to use in each of the bricks DateFunction Automatic how to convert dates to standard form EventLabels None events to label GridLines Automatic grid lines to draw GridLinesStyle Automatic style for grid lines PerformanceGoal \$PerformanceGoal aspects of performance to try to optimize TrendStyle Automatic how to style up and down trends ScalingFunctions None how to scale the axis
• The arguments supplied to ChartElementFunction are the brick region , the date-price pairs list, and metadata .
• A list of built-in settings for ChartElementFunction can be obtained from .
• With the setting ChartElements->{up, down}, up and down will be used for up and down bricks, respectively.
• EventLabels->{..., datei->lbli, ...} specifies a label associated with . The label will be displayed with the brick that has a date range that includes .
• With ScalingFunctions->sy, the function is applied to the prices. ScalingFunctions only affects the display and none of the controls.
• Style and other specifications from options and other constructs in RenkoChart are effectively applied in the order TrendStyle, Style and other wrappers, and ChartElementFunction, with later specifications overriding earlier ones.
