Hey mate
can we apply this in the strategy tester to see how it performs on the daily chart for fx pairs over the years?

Hello and thank you for this great script.
I have one question...
Does the current bar can change color during it's period?
Do we need to wait until the close of a bar to know it's final color?

thanks in advance

Hello Chris,
First off.. TV (and us) are fortunate to have guys like you around here.. :)

Entering and exiting trades based on HA alone is difficult as it doesn't show the actual price bars. This script hugely resolves that issue.

I have slightly modified your script to add:
1. Smoothing of EMA that is displayed on the chart
2. Detect additionally that there are no down wicks (up wicks for short) on the HA bars.

Makes it even more effective!

Hello this is a great indicator!One question though ...I am new on this and i have tried out to create an alert when colours turn from red to green and the opposite.
Can it be done?

For example:

- http://i.imgur.com/NbZRJBd.png (Amazon, weekly chart)

That's a screen shot of Amazon weekly. The top blue arrow points to the 4-week EMA that your indicator bases the bar color on. It's a 4 week EMA (up & down). The lower blue arrow points to a standard 4-week EMA plotted on price (blue line).

As of the close of this week (last week in Oct. 2014), price has closed above the standard 4-week EMA, but not above the 4-week EMA that is plotted by your indicator. Which is why I was wondering if there was some kind of smoothing or if it was based on the slope of the EMA or if the calculations were based on something other than the close of price because it isn't matching up to a generic, out-of-the-box EMA.

Any thoughts would be great. Thanks.

Cheers. :-)
