These chart pattern do not show open, high, low and close, rather it computes the value of candlesticks in respect to the prevailing market forces.

This means for a prevailing bears market, the Heiken-Ashi candlesticks will show red, not minding if the price bar closes higher than it opened.

The 100pips trend indicator draws blue and red arrows in two rows within its indicator window to depict a buy or sell signal respectively.
