Heikin Ashi On the Charts
Heikin Ashi means "average bar" in Japanese. It is useful for making candlestick chart more readable and trends easier to analyse.
Above: The Heikin Ashi Candle.
The Heikin Ashi candle shares some characteristics of standard candles as it contains the same parameters of open, close, maximum and mimimun.
The calculation of the open and close parameters differ from standard candles as they are calculated as follows:
  • Close; Average price of the current bar: 0.25 * (Open + Close + Maximum + Minimum)
  • Open; The Midpoint of the previous bar: 0.5 * (Previous.Open + Previous.Close)
Heikin Ashi candles look smoother as they are essentially taking an average of the price movement. This has the effect of smoothing out price action and highlighting a trend with the same colored candles.
