I hope I am wrong, and that the original poster does come back.
I said what I said though because:
1. I have followed this thread for a long time.
2. The poster soon quit posting after the thread began, never really answering any questions he/she was asked (poor etiquette IMHO, since the original poster didn't mind taking up people's time who read the thread, but couldn't be bothered with actual questions).
3. Each time the thread is updated, anyone following it would know, so if the original poster is knowing that people are posting and asking questions (I asked MONTHS and MONTHS ago and never got a response), then either the original posterdoes not care to clarify, or is not following his/her own thread.
Anyways, I doubt anyone (including myself) have waited solely for this thread to pick up steam. I follow it, am interested, but without the original poster, I will probably do as I do now and concentrate on other things that have proven profitable, on threads/forums where people don't mind answering questions about methods on threads they start. I'm not a mind reader, nor should I have to be.

There could be any number of reasons for his absence.
He may even come back!!
If not then possibly.......
1) He failed at his own strategy and lost all his money - common on this forum.
2) Found too many anomalies and quit.
I very much doubt that he just ran off to make a huge profit.
Most good traders stay here and develop improvements to their strategy!!
If he does not reappear, I may take up this thread at some time (I am very busy on my own Bollinger DNA method - now even on Google!!).
If I take it up, I will teach the correct way to use Heikin Ashi.
For now 2 things should be noted......
1) Heikin Ashi is best suited to short timeframes.
2) Never use Heikin Ashi as a stand alone method - always use support indicators or naked price action with support/resistance lines.
I was just reading the whole forum. It's too bad the original poster disappeared without helping us understand better. The thread does seem dead Potaire, but I would like to hear of your recent observations as you mentioned on the 17th
Or if it's mostly different than the strategy introduced here, maybe you should start a new thread, but do let me know if you do!
Anyway, You can ask me whatever you want to apply this strategy. Of course, you can make it yours like I do adding your own beloved indicators or tricks (dojis, price action, support/resistance, fibo, etc...)
So basically the strategy uses Heiken Ashi indicator with Stochastics (The original author was not using Bolligner Bands anymore as he said it didnt work for him).
I like Heiken Ashi as I use it successfully in my daily trading and it's simple to find trend direction. I was looking for a way of coupling it with another indicator to detect overbought and oversold levels when I found this thread from Google.
