Heikin Ashi and close prices

Postby whitefox » 03 Jan 2013

I realized that when I have Heikin Ashi candles turned on, the OHLC prices in the data box are that of the HA candle, not the actual price. I thought I should be able to output the original price from a script. I created an indicator to plot 'Close[0]', but when I ran the indicator, the output of this indicator was identical to the close price of the HA candle. since this data is used as input in various indicators, does that mean that all indicator output will be based on the HA candle close prices and not the actual close prices? Because that is a problem.

If I have a chart with HA candles (or any other type for that matter), how do I access the real price data for the bars?

Hello Whitefox,

You can add additional regular (not HA) data series 2 to your chart and reference its values in the script, however the script itself is calculated based on the data series 1.
