Chikou Span Not Correct with Daily Heikin Ashi


Recommended Posts

Hello, I have just noticed an important inconsistency in the New HTML5 Platform charts (Browser AND Mobile), when using Heikin Ashi candles and the Ichimoku Indicator. Here is what happens:

1. Create an Ichimoku Indicator using the usual defaults (9,26,52)

2. Change the price "Type" using the "..." selector, to "Heikin Ashi" candles.

3. If not already, change the Timeframe to "Daily"

4. Now, as the chart is updated, you will usually see the current Daily Bar "jump" up or down into view, and the Price Line is now the Heikin Ashi price, NOT the normal price, such as Bid or Mid.

5. Look at the last point of the "Chikou Span" line in the Ichimoku indicator, and you will see that it still points to YESTERDAY's Daily Bar, and does not reflect the very latest Heikin Ashi price for today. This can be misleading. because if you are using the Chikou Span to track closing price movement, you WON'T see the Chikou price move for today, at all.

6. However, you can temporarily fix this by switching the price "Types" option to CANDLE, then back to Heikin Ashi, and Chikou Span will extend itself to today's candle.

7. BUT, the moment that you switch timeframes out of Daily, and return to Daily, the Daily Bar "jumps" up (or down) to the current Heikin Aski Close, but the Chikou Span once more is left pointing to YESTERDAY's Heikin Ashi Close, giving you a completely erroneous view of the latest price pattern.

8.  To conclude, it seems that when we switch to a Daily Timeframe, and today's candle "jumps" into view, then if Heikin Ashi is enabled, the Chikou Span in Ichimoku does NOT extend to today's candle, but still points to yesterday - an incomplete line. As is well known, the Chikou Span line reflects the closing price action, but shifted left on the chart by Kijun-Sen bars, for trading signal purposes.

9. This EXACT SAME problem happens on the Mobile Phone (Android for me) version of the new HTML5 platform.

Footnote and observation: It is NOT usually the case that the Ichimoku indicator even uses the Heikin Ashi close at all ! It is usually the other way around. i.e, If Heikin Ashi is to be used, both it AND Ichimoku use the current REAL price (Bid, Mid, or Ask) as their source. Using Heikin Ashi as the source for Ichimoku can lead to an erroneous indicator plot, and hence erroneous trading signals, thus rendering Ichimoku useless. There is a number of excellent sites that explain the correct source and drawing of Ichimoku and Heikin Ashi.

I hope that this might help to clarify, and correct the problem - when it is possible to do so, thanks.

    • The P2E ecosystem has always been both fun and rewarding and that world is about to welcome a game-changer in Animalia's ANIM token. With my portfolio of playing all kinds of games and recently the P2E genre, I will say Animalia is a mix of Axie Infinity and Pokemon, with a dash of Dogecoin thrown in for good measure. Animalia is a captivating new game that blends meme-tastic creatures, strategic card battles, and the power of blockchain technology. And at the heart of this ecosystem lies the ANIM token, ready to unlock a world of possibilities. With an affordable initial market cap and a bull market launch, Animalia wants everyone to join the fun. Competitors like Axie Infinity and Gods Unchained have paved the way, but Animalia brings its own unique blend of humor, education, and community focus. It's not just about battling, with Animalia you can collect unique cards, own a piece of the game, and participate in shaping its future through governance rights. Animalia also raises awareness about endangered species and the importance of animal conservation. I have to say I Animalia have done a good job with the graphics of the game albeit a card game. I saw an opportunity with the first 1,000 users who achieve a spot net buy volume of 100 USDT in ANIM/USDT pairs will receive 56 ANIM each during the current promotion on Bitget until March 1. I like to play but I love to earn too so I'm heading over! What are your thoughts about Animalia? Are you going to be an early bird to get you share of the ANIM worm?
    • Hey everyone! I want to play free games that use NFTs in a fun way. GameFi is getting big lately with new ways to play and earn. Does anyone know of games where you can start playing for free, but they still use NFTs in a cool way? Maybe with animal or crypto cards... We know NFTs can make games more fun instead of just seeming like a money grab.  Specifically, I'm looking for games that: - Are really fun even if you don't spend money - Have an active community of players  - Are on major platforms like Bitget etc. - Let you collect rare NFTs just by playing that are worth keeping - Have developers who are involved and keeping the game fresh or have partnerships that will help it last Let me know if you've tried any games that fit what I described above. I'm open to exploring new projects in my spare time.
    • I'm intrigued by NADA Protocol's vision of integrating blockchain technology into the gaming experience. The prospect of owning and trading in-game items through NFTs adds an exciting dimension to gameplay, offering real rewards and enhancing immersion. The marketplace controlled by the NADA token seems promising, providing a platform for users to engage in trading activities within the gaming ecosystem. I'm optimistic about NADA's potential to carve a niche for itself in the competitive gaming world, especially with its focus on creating a fun and economically rewarding gaming environment. Looking forward to exploring this new gaming frontier!
