There is also a free version that you can download and try, this will have some limitations attached to it, but we are not sure what they will be.


There are two reviews available for the Range Bars indicator, they are both giving it 5 out of 5 stars which is a very positive start.

“Very good indicator, recommend!!”

“The Range Bars are awesome! fits perfectly into my strategy and much nicer and easier to trade than renko IMO.”

So both the reviews are very positive, as there aren’t many of them, we would recommend trying out the free version of the indicator, this will allow you to try it out and to make sure that you are able to get it set up and that it is in fact what you are looking for prior to making an actual purchase.
