Indicator Overview

Clear Direction of Trend

The Heikin-Ashi Smoothed is an indicator that displays smoothed moving averages as Heikin-Ashi candles.

Compared to regular candlesticks, Heikin-Ashi uses the average of the open and close of the previous candle for its open, and the average of the open, high, low, and close of the current candle for its close, making it easier to understand the direction of the trend.

The Heikin-Ashi Smoothed further refines this by calculating the Heikin-Ashi using smoothed values of the price movements, reducing false signals and making it easier to grasp the trend direction.

Using a Filter to Further Reduce False Signals

Although the Heikin-Ashi Smoothed makes it easier to discern the direction of the trend, false signals can still occur in choppy markets.

While trend indicators inherently encounter false signals, this indicator includes a filter function that mitigates them. This filter displays the same value as the previous candle if the change in the four values calculated for the Heikin-Ashi does not exceed a specified range. If the change exceeds the set range, then it updates to show the new value, helping to avoid unnecessary fluctuations in sideways markets.

Note, however, that this can delay the response, making it unsuitable for capturing the very start of price movements.
