Catch Trends With Heiken-Ashi Candlestick Analysis

A good Heiken Ashi trade setup will tend to run much longer than a usual price action setup. When we’re trading with Heiken Ashi candles, we really want to exploit this. It is important to keep our trades open for longer than normal.

SharpCharts users can find Heikin-Ashi under “Chart Attributes” and “Type”. These candlesticks can be black and white or in color. Checking the “color prices” box will show red candlesticks for periods that closed lower and black candlesticks for periods that closed higher. A red filled candlestick means the close was below the open (filled) and the close was lower than the prior close (red). A black hollow candlestick means the close was above the open (hollow) and the close was higher than the prior close (black). The chart below shows both candlestick types side-by-side. Sorry, dual colors are not a charting option. The chart was created by cutting and pasting from one chart to the other.

If you hope to use the Heiken Ashi technique, you will likely want to use trading software that can create the charts for you. Because of this, memorizing the Heiken Ashi chart formula may not be absolutely necessary. However, knowing the formula can help you understand why this technique is useful.

This trading approach is not foolproof. Look at the first Morning Star candlestick pattern at the bottom of the chart. The two bars before it formed a Dark Cloud Cover pattern which is bearish. Taking that signal to go short will result in a losing trade.
