Indicators calculated from Heikin Ashi values

Question

I am using the web interface. I have been investigating Heikin-Ashi candlesticks, which look great. However, it appears that indicators like CCI, MACD, RSI and Stochastics change when you switch from standard candlesticks to H-A. Surely the indicators have their definitions which are based on actual OHLC, and shouldn't be calculated based on H-A OHLC? H-A is a smoothing mechanism, not a different way to define prices.

Thanks for raising this, I see where you're coming from. I've raised this to the developers and will update you when they get back to me. 

All the best 🙂
