Heikin-Ashi Smoothed

The Heikin-Ashi Smoothed study is based upon the standard Heikin-Ashi study with additional moving average calculations. The following is the calculation formula for the bars:

  1. The current bar Open, High, Low, Close values are smoothed individually by using the moving average type specified by the Moving Average Type 1 Input with a length/period specified by the Moving Average Period 1 Input.
  2. The Heikin-Ashi bar Open, High, Low, Close values are set using the smoothed values from step 1. This is performed using the standard Heikin-Ashi formula.
  3. The final Heikin-Ashi Open, High, Low, Close values are calculated by doing a second smoothing of the bar values from step 2 by using the moving average type specified by the Moving Average Type 2 Input with a length/period specified by the Moving Average Period 2 Input.

If you want to view the Heikin-Ashi Smoothed study as the main price graph and replace the existing chart bars, then open the Study Settings window for the Heikin-Ashi study and enable the Display As Main Price Graph option.
