Can you judge a trend of any particular stock in in a matter of seconds? Well, there is one indicator that allows you to do exactly that. In a matter of seconds you can know the trend of an instrument. It is possible with a candle-stick known as Heikin Ashi.

To those who are interested in technical meaning, here is how the candle stick is computed –

  • Open price: the open price in a Heikin-Ashi candlestick is the average of the open and close of the previous candlestick.
  • Close price: the close price in a Heikin-Ashi candlestick is the average of open, close, high and low prices.
  • High price: the high price in a Heikin-Ashi candlestick is chosen from one of the high, open and close price of which has the highest value.
  • Low price: the low price in a Heikin-Ashi candlestick is chosen from one of the low, open and close price of which has the lowest value.

What do we learn from the above image –

  • When a trend is strong you will see only one tail (it can be on either side)
  • The moment you see tail on both sides, get ready. The trend is about to change
  • After the trend is changed, enter the stock (Buy or Sell) and keep on holding it till the time you see both the tails.

See, was it difficult?
