What are your favourite instruments that you trade with Ichimoku and what time frames do you use (If you don't mind answering this question).

Hi Steve,
I am using ICHIMOKU for trading in timeframes of 350 ticks, 1 min, 5 min mainly for EURUSD, ES. For analyzing and long term trades you can use time - as usual - from 15 min and above up to daily charts for all instruments.
Since Ichimoku follows its own philosophy it is paramount to understand what this indicator is telling and how to use it for own trading.


You can find here some interesting informations Ichimoku trade.

Have Fun!

Thanks for the Ichimoku indicator and information.

Can somebody add an email alert feature to send an email alert when Tenkun Sen crosses the Kijun Sen.

Thanks.

Hello,

Below is the formulas of Ichimoku Kinko Hyo without deviating from the original tenet by Goichi Hosoda unveiled in 1936.
  1. Tenkan-Sen - (Highest high over the past 9 periods counting from the current candle + lowest low over the past 9 peirods counting from the current candle) / 2.
  2. Kijun-Sen - (Highest high over the past 26 periods counting from the current candle + lowest low over the past 26 peirods counting from the current candle) / 2.
  3. Chikou Span - The current closing price plotted 26 periods behind counting from the current candle.
  4. Senkou Span A - (Tenkan-Sen + Kijun-Sen) / 2, plotted 26 periods ahead counting from the current candle.
  5. Senkou Span B - (Highest high + lowest low) / 2, calculated over the past 52 periods counting from the current candle. Plot 26 periods ahead counting from the current candle.
(Please note that as I exaggerated, 'counting from the current candle' is the trick when calculating/displaying each value, which has been overlooked (I don't know why) by most of the trading literature out of Japan.)

May I ask BM forum members if the ichimoku.cs modified by tarantino can properly plot the 5 lines just by altering the parameters into 8, 25, 51 respectively? Otherwise, would it need any tweaking of the existing code to make it happen?

Any valuable comments are highly appreciated.

Regards,

Tarantino,

The standard version of the Ichimoku uses High and Low values for all calculations except the Chikou Span. I don't know whether this is intentional or not, but your version of the indicator uses Close (the default input for MAX and MIN) for everything. Thus all plots except the Chikou Span are slightly off.

Here's a version using the H and L values.

I'd like to see you guys start a Ichimoku thread, not specific to any one platform - just a thread in Traders Hideout discussing Ichimoku trading techniques.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Hello Guys

I have been purely an Ichimoku Trader since about a year now. Ever since I have used Ichimoku, I have seen an improvement in my trading and understanding the market.

@ Mike: I have been wanting to start a thread on Ichimoku and share my path with other Ichimoku followers. In fact I was very tempted to start a thread during the IPad contest ...... BUT .... I did not start it only for the reason that I did not want the IPad to be the reason for my thread. I wanted to do it for sharing my experience with fellow traders in futures.io (formerly BMT) as I personally have gained a lot from here.

I will take the initiative of starting this thread and request every one to be a participant in this.

Thanks.

Thanks
Steve
Be like a JAGUAR. Crouching, perfectly still, waiting for the set up to come to you, then pouncing without hesitation or thought. You only need one to feed the family

The IPad contest is just a trigger, as you will start the thread, and I will look forward it, you will discover that it helps other members, but most of, it will help yourself and that is much more worthy than an electronic device.

Hi SteveM,

I encourage you to start the Ichimoku thread and promise my regular contributions. I am using Ichimoku for my currency trades for more than three years and will gladly share my systems. I am using Updata's ProTrader for my Ichimoku analysis. David Linton (Updata CEO) wrote a good book on Ichimoku, I believe it is available on Amazon in case someone is interested.

Good trading

Rani
