Subject: Heikin-Ashi Candles, A Different Approach to Candlesticks

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

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

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

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

Speaker: Darryl Nagel

Darryl Nagel started trading the markets in 1986, then focussing on trading exchange traded options on Australian stocks. He has taught technical analysis since 2003 and has gained an RG146 qualification for trading all instruments and has been an Authorised Representative under an AFSL. He maintains an interest in learning new technical analysis techniques and has been attracted to the interest in trading Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Darryl believes that a trader will be potentially profitable in trading such currencies using technical analysis. Lately he likes to use Ichimoku and price action for his own trading.

Subject: Profitably trading Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies using technical analysis in a regulated environment

Bitcoin will be the focus of this presentation but the analysis of trading Bitcoin applies to other cryptocurrencies. The Blockchain phenomenon will be discussed in the context of cryptocurrencies. Additionally, the twin worlds of Bitcoin will be discussed looking at the advantages and disadvantages of trading within each of these worlds. Darryl will show how he intends to trade Bitcoin using two technical analysis techniques that he likes to use with his own trading.

Subject: Ichimoku with a twist

The Ichimoku Cloud, also known as Ichimoku Kinko Hyo, translates into “one look equilibrium chart”. It was created in the late ‘60s, by a Japanese journalist (not an economist or a trader). It is becoming very fashionable amongst Western traders, although it has been popular in Japan for quite a long time. The main advantage of this system is that it provides everything a technical analyst needs to analyse an asset and trade it, so it could potentially be the only tool one uses. Unfortunately, the way most people use it is completely wrong and misleading, and that is why it is still not as popular as it should be. In this presentation I will try to convince you that Ichimoku is probably one of the most effective systems at your disposal for analysing trend and trading.
