Renko Guppy

I like renko blocks and I like guppy mma's so I decided to put together a study for using them with each other while I'm using other bar types.

Additionally, I added two line plots for two different renko sizes of your choice. This has a nice benefit of being able to see how price appears to be ranging between the "block sizes".

Being able to see the lines contract, especially within these "ranging" zones, gives you a great indication of an impending breakout.

The example you see above shows the guppy block size set to 15, the white line is 50 and the blue is 100. It should hopefully illustrate the idea.

The current close price (red line) can also be optionally plotted as a separate moving average, or simply the close price. I defaulted it to a 3 period EMA to smooth it out a bit so it flows a bit better with the guppy ma's. It's helpful to see how price is actually moving around within these Renko blocks.

Pick either Traditional or ATR block sizes.

There are the fast (5) / slow (5) moving averages.
Pick your poison: EMA (default), SMA , WMA , SMMA , DEMA , TEMA , HullMA, ZEMA, TMA, SSMA

There's some options to disable/enable things as you see fit.

The defaults are set to my own needs so you'll probably want to change block sizes for you preferences/symbols/timeframes.

Note: This is presumably only usable for those of you with access to Renko charts on here.
