Made in a few minutes to debunk all the bullshit going around tradingview and everywhere about "heikin-ashi" being a holy grail trend indicator.
Do not be deceived.
Heikin-Ashi is a beautiful way to remove much of the noise in markets, and is light on the eyes. (nice and smooth!)
I personally use heikin-ashi as a way to remove a lot of the clutter in the markets,...
You can use this script to backtest Heikin-Ashi bar color change strategy.
You have to apply this script to usual candles and not Heikin-Ashi!!!
Background color indicates HA bar color. On change you'll see green/red arrows and alert will be fired.
Also you can find in the code calculations of all HA OHLC values.
This "simple" strategy of crossing EMAs + SMAs based on Heikin Ashi candles data presents a very good result as a signal or automated trading. You should try it out.
If you like, I would appreciate a "thumbs up" in my profile @agbarbosa.
Very simple T S that uses:
RSIOMA (Relative Strength Index of Moving Average) (RSI 7, EMA 9);
EMA 5 offset 2;
HEIKIN ASHI Candles.
RSI crossing over its EMA 9;
Last HA candle is green and closes above EMA 5 (best signals when this candle has ONLY upper long shadow and no lower shadow -> STRONG TREND STARTING)
This is my first script and it is basically a MA crossover/under strategy that uses heikin ashi closing prices. I've also used limit orders based on HA opening prices of the previous day for entry which improves the performance. However, this impose a restriction when prices are moving too fast and the algo is unable to enter the trade, resulting in a bad position...
