Gauge trend phases & trend slowdowns effectively


Following the awesome release of Heiken-Ashi Smoothed, we continue expanding our journey on the Heiken-Ashi series with fresh ideas, and Heiken-Ashi Smart Delta has become one of our successful experiments.

The indicator plots the Heiken-Ashi deltas, with the delta calculated as follows:

Delta = PriceFrom – PriceTo

Here PriceFrom & PriceTo can be independently selected from a big list of options:

  • CurrentHA_Close
  • CurrentHA_Open
  • CurrentHA_ExtremumFront
  • CurrentHA_ExtremumBehind
  • CurrentHA_Median
  • CurrentHA_Typical
  • CurrentHA_Weighted
  • PreviousHA_Close
  • PreviousHA_Open
  • PreviousHA_ExtremumFront
  • PreviousHA_ExtremumBehind
  • PreviousHA_Median
  • PreviousHA_Typical
  • PreviousHA_Weighted

Be creative! You are given the flexibility to design your own delta by mixing & matching different selections of PriceFrom with PriceTo.

By default, the delta is set to be the difference between CurrentHA_Close and CurrentHA_Open, which is nothing but the current Heiken-Ashi candle’s body. This default setting is already very effective. Just choose it if you don’t want to run experiments.

IMPORTANT: For each new combination of PriceFrom & PriceTo, you’ll need to increase/decrease “Threshold Upper” and “Threshold Lower” accordingly to have the indicator’s trend recognition logic adapt to the combination.

A moving average of the delta is added to help detect trend slowdowns. When the delta crosses below the MA in the region above Threshold Upper or crosses above the MA in the region below Threshold Lower, a slowdown signal will be generated to warn you of a potential trend consolidation, pullback, or even reversal. In our experience, a slowdown signal is more reliable when it forms a divergence of slowdown signals vs the price action.

■ Futures and fx trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

■ Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. For example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
