Tema, Triple Exponential Moving Average was first introduced in Stocks & Commodities magazine February 1994 by Patrick Mulloy. Price is passed multiple times through the same filter and than combined. TEMA = 3*EMA – 3*EMA(EMA) + EMA(EMA(EMA)). If you are looking for a good smoothing, but still fast reacting average on longer time periods, then the TEMA average is for you.
Heikin ashi, Japanese for “average bar”, is a technique using a special kind of candle stick bars for better visualizing price trends. This technique has been introduced by Dan Valcu in the February 2004 issue of Stocks & Commodities magazine.
I calculate the average heikin ashi closing price as the result of:
(xClose+xOpen+xHigh+xLow)/4, the re-calculated heikin ashi prices.
We will mainly use this re-calculated closing price as a smoothed closing price introducing almost no delay in other formulas.

Price is passed multiple times through the same filter and than combined. TEMA = 3*EMA – 3*EMA(EMA) + EMA(EMA(EMA)). If you are looking for a better smoothing, but still with little lag using longer time periods, then the TEMA average on the heikin ashi price is for you.
You can use a heikin ashi TEMA average smoothed value with a zero-laging technique, crossing with a TEMA zero-lagging average typical price, to create fast reliable crossings.
Risk Disclosure: Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
Hypothetical Performance Disclosure: Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. no representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. for example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
