Heikin-Ashi candles are now available on the IG trading platform for both desktop and mobile. This feature has been one of the more highly requested additions to charts as these types of candles are commonly used by traders looking at identifying trends visually without the need of complex analysis.

 

How can I see  Heikin-Ashi candles on the IG dealing platform?

Turning on Heikin-Ashi candles is simple. If you want to see these candles;

  • Simply open the main menu by right clicking on the charts
  • Navigate to “Types” and bring up the second menu list
  • Select “Heikin-Ashi” - the candles will appear straight away
     

 

How are Heikin-Ashi candles different from regular HLOC candles?

You can read more about what Heikin-Ashi candlestick are on IG.com, but to see a simple visual on the difference and how these could be used for identifying possible trends, just check out the charts below.

Hi @JamesIG, nice addition to indicators. 👍

Been looking for the Standard Deviation Channel indicator that goes on the chart. Can I request that for the next addition?

thanks for the feedback - I'll make sure to pass it on to the charts team. Whilst we don't have the SD Channel option, we do have the regular SD indicator which may be of interest.
