Great article,Dale. Very informative. The HA turn trading into a song. I had no idea about the diff in the spread, but that makes sense considering the HA was designed to prevent trading against the trend, and the spread is the fix. Smart. With that as the only 8775 disadvantage 8776 I will continue trade regular candles and use the HA as an indicator on the same chart. I have come to learn cross-overs from a 69 periods stochastic, D: 7 and K:8 as an added measure for confirming entry/exit.

What is Heikin Ashi?

On the left chart, you can see strong down move in play and many people would want to short.  Glance at the hourly chart (#6) which is showing very long shadows which is weakness.

How To Read Price Action With Heiken Ashi

Heikin-Ashi Technique Definition and Example

Hi, love this guide! So detailed.
Just wanna clear something. So the longer the wick compare to body, the slower the momentum? So does that means a full body show strong momentum?

Heiken Ashi uses a COHL formula, which stands for “Close, Open, High, Low.” These are the four components that affect the shape, size, and direction of the bars. The formula for each of these components is listed below:

Excellent article Dale just a pity there 8767 s no mention of Heikin Ashi Smoothed, which I find another fascination feature of these candles (cuts out even more market noise).

To keep things simple, let 8767 s look at a strategy that uses trend direction determined with price action , common chart patterns, and the doji reversal candles of the HA chart.

Like any indicator, I like to know how the calculation is done to help recognize any nuances to using them.  As mentioned, the HA chart will not give you the exchange price at any given time.
