Heiken Trader Explanation
- Heiken Ashi Smoothed: It is an upgraded version of popular trend indicator Heiken Ashi. It applies its MA’s in a smoothed formula for minimizing the lagging issues. Price closes above its level mean the market is in a bullish trend. For a bearish trend, the price must be closed below its level. The indicator also changes its color while there is a change in the market trend for better understanding.
- FXTrend V2 & Trend Lord: Both of these indicators have been included as a trend filter to the system. If the bullish trend is valid, the indicator bars will turn into blue color. Oppositely, all the bars turn red for signaling the validity of the bearish trend of the market. Before you make a market entry, make sure all the bars are signaling for the same trend at the same time.
- Trend Arrows: This indicator provides assistance to understand the final trade signal generated by the main indicators of this trading strategy. It plots arrow signals as a confirmation of the trade signals at the main chart window. For long entry, wait until a series of green arrows below the price candle and for a short entry, the arrows must be plotted above the price candle being turned into a red color.
