Topic: Heiken-Ashi Candles – A different approach to Candlesticks.

Heiken-Ashi Candlesticks look just like normal Japanese Candlesticks, so why are they different?

In the 1700’s when Munehisa Homma developed Heiken-Ashi Candlesticks, what were his objectives in designing a modified version of candlesticks?

Some traders (and in particular FX traders) claim that Heiken-Ashi Candlesticks are a very powerful tool towards identifying the direction of the trend.

In this presentation we will look at how Heiken-Ashi candlesticks are constructed, and why they offer a very different approach to normal Candlesticks, towards making your trading decisions?
