Trading Heikin Ashi & Momentum Stops

Forex Training

Have you ever tried trading Heiken Ashi charts?

Heikin Ashi allows traders to look for the emergence of new trends or for the reversal of already existing trends.

Here are five basic ways to use Heikin Ashi charts in your trading. At the end of this short overview I have included a video that will show how to use the Heiken Ashi charts along with a coined phrase called “MOM Stops”. It is the use of momentum to get you out of a trade with minimal loss if your not sure about the trade.

When the Heikin Ashi candle changes from red (bearish) to green (bullish), it’s a sign that price might be about to turn higher.


1. Green candlesticks signal an uptrend.

If you’re currently in a short position, you may want to exit. If you’re currently in a long position, you may want to add to your position.


2. Green candlesticks with no lower shadow or wick indicate a strong uptrend.

If you see a lot of green shaved bottoms, you’ll see a strong uptrend.

Stay long and until the Heikin Ashi candlestick changes color, from green to red.

Ride the uptrend as long as no lower shadows appear and let your profits run.


3. Candlesticks with small bodies showing upper and lower shadows indicate a possible trend reversal (or trend pause).

Open a position opposite the current trend since the trend may be coming to an end.

Keep in mind that though that IF the next candlestick changes color, it does NOT always mean the end of a trend, it could just be a pause.

4. Red candlesticks signal a downtrend

When the Heikin Ashi candle changes from green (bullish) to red (bearish), it’s a sign that price might be about to turn lower.

If you’re currently in a long position, you may want to exit.

If you’re currently in a short position, you may want to add to your position.


5. Red candlesticks with no upper shadow or wick indicate a strong downtrend.

Notice the amount of red shaved heads? That’s a strong downtrend.

Stay short and until the Heikin Ashi candlestick changes color, from red to green.

Stay short and ride the downtrend as long as no upper shadows appear and let your profits run.

I found this class by accident. I was already doing some forex and binary when I found MT’s site. Getting texts when to buy and when to sell from the other service I was using was a complete joke.  I couldn’t stand the waiting and wondering if we were getting a text or not. It always made me wonder where are they’re getting the signals. How did they know this and why wasnt it more consistent. One thing for sure they did put alot of hype to get you too join.

Then I found a video of MT’s session…Read More…

In early 2015 I was searching for a second income, an extra wage to help pay the bills. I’d had a go at MLM but found all the extra work time consuming. I started looking into binary options and in doing some research I came across a BOTS review. Straight away I was impressed but wanted to do some more research and over the next couple of weeks I found myself drawn to the site on a few occasions and in May 2015 I decided to give it a go.
