I am still (more or less) in the paper trading stage - but I switched up my approach last week after having some IB paper account problems and realizing the NT 7 beta was out for public testing.

I had been using 5 minute candles with some success. Definitely still on the learning curve. A lot can happen in 5 minutes and my ability to read/understand how the candle will play out needs some improvement.

I had been using a TEMA based 3 minute HA candle in place of a 15-minute for general trend analysis in NT 6.5. After realizing the particular indicator migration from 6.5 to 7 would be a pretty big hastle, I settled for the standard HA and decided to try replacing the 5 minute candle with a 1 minute HA. It seems to suit my personality and evolving trading style pretty well: at the moment - hitching a ride on whatever the market offers, and trying to define/limit the selection pool to higher probability big movers (equities).

Granted - the 'real ' price action is hidden, but the 1 minute interval takes care of some of that. Personally, I find that the 5 minute candle can hid price direction as well: a lot of movement in 5 minutes.

Check out my home page for some screenshots of Friday's action. Check out Thursday's as well (I showed negative trading results on Thursday, but I blame it on selection pool - the trend is pretty easy to see).

Just wondering if anyone else is using HA's or has thoughts/experience they care to share.

Great forum Mike.

Not a lot of response to this question - maybe a picture is in order.

See the attachement for some trading I did yesterday morning using the 1 minute HA.

I wish the day would of ended after that trade lol. I still need to be more selective on my entries, but if they are right, the HA makes for some easy reading. See my blog for more examples. I would love to hear some opinions if there are any to be had.

Ill share a screenshot of what Ive found to be a good way to use HA for continuations of a trend . This works best on range bars and its the plain HA indicator on range alt bars . The fuchsia dots are the close price and I feel thats the important element in determining when to enter or exit . The hash is adxvma and serves as a volatility stop to help keep runners alive ,

I myself love the HA. Been trading with it for a year now. My favorite setting is a ES 1597 Tick chart with a 3min HA for overall trend flow.

So you are trading off of the tick chart and using the 3 minute HA for confirmation? I assume you are successful with it if you are still using it after a year?

I guess it pays the bills. : ). I've been trading for 17 yrs now. This is been my only income for 11yrs. And the main thing that brings success on my part is just being patient and waiting for good price action swing points. That are going with the present trend. Be it sideways, long or short. In my opinion The HA helps filter all the noise out. Especially on a long term tick chart. Tick chart give more cleaner peaks and valleys that help me with my decision making. But for trend a good 5 min regular time chart or 3 min HA do the job. A good Combination would be the Price action Threads (Al Brooks) with your HA charts. Conservative but consistent is my model.
