Check out the Hieken Ashi Candles that I use for trend spotting.
This is the first step of the Bombora system, trend recognition. It is the basic way to decide whether to buy or sell. The H-A Candles are set to take a long look back at price action to determine the direction. It is two simple readings:
1. If the H-A Candles are red, I am looking for sell trades
2. If the H-A Candles are blue, I am looking for buy trades
Using the H-A Candles is a basis for expert trend recognition on any time frame. The idea can be matched with any system you use.
