I use the indicator called "IchiCloud" which only plots the 2 Senkou Span lines. The full indicator "Ichi Lines" which plots all 3 lines of the Ichimoku Cloud I personally don't like. To answer your question directly though Ninja Trader 7 does not plot the Chikou Span line that you are refferring to 26 bars in advance due to data or processing problems. I'm not sure as to why exactly it is something I read in a Ninja forum somewhere when I was evaluating the indicator
I do not mind sharing the details of my trading approach to you or anyone else on the forum that wants to take a serious look at how I make money. As a learning experience, they say write a trading plan - right ? I have created a PDF manual that explains my methodology to the specific rules. I actually review it myself on a daily basis to get myself locked in to trading.
I have no problem sharing it with anyone who again wants to take a serious look at what I do. Anyone who would like a copy send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org this will make communication easier for both of us
