What do you think about Heiken-Ashi candles?

I am a very frequent user of HA candles. But my personal feeling is that these are more reliable on longer term time frames to capture a general perspective on the overal trend (and specifically changes in trend) than on shorter time frames.

I do not like technical indicators that much, so I mainly place reliance on horizontal support resistance and that's pretty much it. For this, I need regular candles as HA is not useful for S/R analysis.  Once I've formed any opinion on Horizontal S/R (on daily or weekly time frames) I switch to HA to see if I can visualize a general direction.  If a daily HA candle is showing continued upward trending for example, wait for a trading day where it is trading downward vs previous day and I look to enter a long position and vice-versa for shorting. I only use HA on 5 minute time frames to figure out when I may want to enter/exit a position. But only after I have determined that I want to take a position based upon the analysis I mention above.

So yes I use HA, but only to forecast an overall trend. I regularly switch back and forth to regular OHLC candles before taking a position.  Otherwise I do not really use any other technical indicators.

No matter what, all indicators and HA are going to be lagging in time, so it is best to form opinions based on multiple pieces of information rather than indicators alone.

i use them, but i would like to have the option to toggle quickly between both the candles so you could maybe turn hotkeys on your key board so you tap 'h' or something and then again to turn it on/off. Like you said i also like to use it to compliment the trading but not have it as the sole chart. Spiltting the chart also works.

    • I overheard a discussion between two friends and one was telling the other that Bitcoin is a scam and that a lot of people preached about the halving and how people could cashout from it. The other friend was trying to convince him to continue holding his asset but he refused and replied that nothing would stop him from selling the coins he's holding.  When I heard that man mentioned cashing out from the halving, I understood that he might know about Bitcoin but he's not properly enlightened concerning it. A lot of expectations were cut short after the halving event cause most people expected Bitcoin to set a new height of $80k but then it didn't even get close to the previous all time high and have reduced below $60k currently.  I think people shouldn't get discourage by that, though I didn't experience other halvings cause I had zero knowledge about Bitcoin then but i think something similar have occurred before in one of the previous halving where Bitcoin price didn't go up as expected but later traced back and went up after some period, a lot of people might begin to panic and sell their coins but I still see this an opportunity to buy more Bitcoin and for those who are not opportuned to do so, holding is the best option, please correct me if you think am wrong

    • Non-Playable Coin (NPC) is a weird and wonderful experiment that smashes together meme culture, NFTs, and DeFi. It's like someone threw a bunch of internet trends into a blender and hit puree. But hey, that's kind of what makes it interesting. So, NPC has a massive token supply - like, a whopping 7.9 billion. That's basically the entire global population. It's like they're trying to make ownership a thing for the masses. And then there's the Meme Fungible Token (MFT), which is like a token shape-shifter. It can switch between ERC20 and ERC1155 standards, making it a flexible little beast. So, is NPC the ultimate meme coin for the NFT generation just because it got listed on Bitget? Nah, let's not get ahead of ourselves. It's an innovative project, sure, but it's not the only game in town. There are other meme coin and NFT hybrid projects worth exploring. What do you think, folks? Is NPC a brilliant mashup of memes, NFTs, and DeFi, or just a fleeting fad? Share your thoughts in the comments!"
