A problem with Heikin Ashi is that while it gives you a great overview of overall direction, it is rarely possible to use it as a replacement for normal japanese
candlesticks. The reason for this is that actual price data is lost, since the candles are more akin to a moving average than a different way to see price action. Also, with Heikin Ashi, most of the...
This is a script to place Heiken Ashi candles on your chart alongside another candle type or more importantly, using the variables from this script, you can build a strategy using Heiken Ashi candles that will depict true/proper entries and exits in a strategy when using the backtest feature.
We hope this helps!
This is an updated and final version of this indicator. This version distinguishes between the true Harami and the other Doji candlestick patterns as used with the Heikin Ashi candle charts. These candle patterns indicate a potential trend reversal or pullback.

Simple script to view Heiken-Ashi candles below a normal candles chart.
Could also be useful for using HA calcs in strategy scripts on normal candles chart for proper backtesting.
I adapted this to v4 from original v2 script by @samtsui. If you like please remember to give him a Thumbs Up for his original version! ->...
This script plots both real and HA candles regardless or which are used on the chart in TV settings.
(and has the functions for you to use.)
Lots of people seem to misunderstand backtesting (or scam people) based on HA candles.
