Heikin-ashi is a Japanese visual technique that takes ambiguity out of Japanese candlesticks patterns and allows traders to apply another layer of data and precision to their trading. In addition, heikin-ashi is also quantifiable and removes subjective and artistic candlestick patterns from your charts and trading.

You need less than ten seconds to see the trend and take a decision.
