You need to check the buffers values to get a feel for what they look like. Example below, you can see they're similar to price. The trick is trying to figure out how it calculates the trends. For that and other uses, I recommend you check out this site.

void start(){
    double Buffer0=iCustom(Symbol(),0,"Heiken Ashi2",0,0);
    double Buffer1=iCustom(Symbol(),0,"Heiken Ashi2",1,0);
    double Buffer2=iCustom(Symbol(),0,"Heiken Ashi2",2,0);
    double Buffer3=iCustom(Symbol(),0,"Heiken Ashi2",3,0);
    Print("Buffer0="+Buffer0);
    Print("Buffer1="+Buffer1);
    Print("Buffer2="+Buffer2);
    Print("Buffer3="+Buffer3);
}

The "difficulty" with the Heiken Ashi is that there is not just one standard version. If you take a look at this thread it should get you started ...
