Heiken Ashi


The Heikin-Ashi technique is extremely useful for making candlestick charts more readable--trends can be located more easily, and buying opportunities can be spotted at a glance. The charts are constructed in the same manner as a normal candlestick chart, with the exception of the modified bar formulas. When properly used, this technique can help you spot trends and trend changes from which you can profit!

How to install:

1) Double click on downloaded file and follow instructions

2) Add indicator from Custom menu:

3) Switch main chart to line mode:

4) Choose Black for Bear Outline color option:

Hi, is that possible to add the option to color the shadow and the border of the candle? Could be one option for both...

I've added some functions for cBots developers to use HA data in their bots. 

Check out /algos/indicators/show/1452

Is it possible for the HA bars to underlay instead of overlay? I would like to have HA bars, but also see the barchart so I can see the actual open and close price of each bar without having to mouse over it.

Простите за беспокойство, разобрался сам. Спасибо!

Здравствуйте! Почему то выше предложенный код собирается с ошибками. Целых 31! Не поможете разобраться?

Hi, could you also convert the free MT4 indicator HAMA for use with cTrader?

It stands for Heiken Ashi Moving Average.

You can see it here

It is even more powerful than Heiken Ashi, I use it exclusively with price action to trade.

If you cannot get the file contact me and I will give it to you.

1) Place the HA the chart 2) Turn main chart type to line: Alt+3 3) Change the line color the same as the background color (default is black): - Right click-->color options--->Bull line (choose the color) - Right click-->color options--->Bear line (choose the color)
