Anyone here trading stocks with ichimoku kinko hyo?

It's one of my favorite ways to pick stocks, great for finding entry/exit levels as well as support/resistance, simply a brilliant way to show charts, but unfortunately I have not found any charting services or other services that do justice to the brilliant ichimoku itself.

I'm looking for good ichimoku charts and services to be used with both American and European stock exchanges.

Currently I am using ichimokutrader, it's free and the best one I have found yet, but it's limited. Charts contain data for the last 6-12 months only, and I would also prefer if there was a way to scan for latest ichimoku signals for each stock exchange.

I have also downloaded the newest plugin for ichimoku for Ninjatrader, it's buggy and limited. (only tested with free data feed from Yahoo)

There's a few brokers offering ichimoku charting, but have no experience with them. Also, I found that MetaStock did provide ichimoku charts, but have no experience with them.

If you are trading stocks with ichimoku, of if you know about good brokers/software/websites for ichimoku I would love to learn what your experiences are!

I have searched and read some good stuff on this forum, but I have still not found "the perfect" ichimoku service/software/broker to be used with American and European stock exchanges.

I've done it before on ninja trader, I'm not sure if the indicators are from the platform or from the download section but it's possible. What are all the indicators your system is comprised of and I'll try to help you find them.

The indicators were from the download section, the platform did not come with ichimoku pre-installed.

Is it possible to use Ninjatrader for ichomoku backtesting for multiple stocks?

And can you use Ninjatrader to scan for all new ichimoku signals from all stocks on one selected stock exchange?

I know they have Ichimoku Cloud and do stocks. They sell the platform, pick a broker.

Stockcharts.com has a good Ichimoku implementation.

There is a good book on this subject:

Stockchart.com is my charting service of choice but it has some limitations

In the free service the charts are only good for daily charts (there are intra-day charts in the subscribed service but I am not sure if Ichimoku charts are included as intra-day there)

Also the stocks are ONLY for Canadian and USA stocks. The OP has not said what stocks he is interested in and being Norwegian if if he is interested in European stocks then StockCharts.com will not be very useful.

The Ninja trader forum only has one indicator that is close to being accurate and worth a try. It does project into the future, but it has no alerts. It is the indicator called IchimokuCloud.zip One other drawback is that it does not have outlines of the Cloud, only the cloud itself without the borders. Still, it is best one out there that is free. Good Luck.
