Alright--so there's clearly strong support at 1082, but IUX making lower highs and lower lows, with descent resistance at 1129. Is shorting here plain foolish?

How do you guys play ichimoku on the 5m chart?

Not going to say shorting is foolish but I'm not getting any signal to short at the moment. I'd want to see it get below 1123.5 before I entertained that idea and would be watching around 1117 very carefully for a flip to go long. If it stays below 1117 short looks good to 1109.7 minimum.

That being said the more significant areas are around 1080 1100 1120 and 1140 in round numbers...1135.10 really needs to be taken out for the long scenario to look good/better. I have the bottom of a ichimoku cloud on the daily currently at 1035.9
so that could be some measure of resistance, though not huge.

I'm not sure what you are asking in regards to 5m Ichimoku chart...same rules apply on all time frames

Showing some pretty good divergence on my tick charts with cumulative delta on ES...lot of selling.
pretty good selling on TF as well. 1919.25 might be the top on ES

@kbit--what do you rely on primarily for your chart data? I know you're an ichimoku fan...what else do you use?

I have a 2000 tick, a 1597 tick(both with cumulative delta and the 1597 has daily,weekly and monthly vwap on it and floor trader pivots as well and then the 2 Ichimoku charts with Kase bars with slightly different settings...

The vwaps are something I keep an eye on as well the pivots...especially the monthly vwap when the action gets close to it and/or hits it. the Delta thing I don't pay a lot of attention to unless I start to see good divergence at which point gives me an indication a reversal might have a good run.

All that being said my main focus these days is on the Ichimoku charts.

I guess TF made me look like an idiot today... I did show a short signal shortly after I posted the high side target I was looking for and shortly thereafter got taken out of my long. The next long showed up about 10 minutes after I walked away....

That said the daily KS resides at 1111, I'm still looking for another good spot to hop in for a better ride, that might be it. If not I'm thinking the absolute bottom would be 1100. I realize we're getting lower highs and lower lows(daily) so that is something to keep in mind for the time being.

I believe 1100 is the bottom and we will see that before returning back above 1140.

These last 2 weeks have seemed a little different to me. Good thing I have clear rules and stuck to them because I have been completely wrong on overall direction.
