Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Ichimoku Kinko Hyo is a very interesting indicator.
Useful indeed for different time periods.
Works on most stocks and futures.
There are many threads here on futures.io (formerly BMT) - just type "Ichimoku"
into the search box.

Focus more on your risk and trade management than on an indicator.
Ichimoku taught me that indicators don't matter, managing your risk and the trade does.
I would start out learning price action, market structure, orderflow, volume analysis over
any sort of indicator. Most novices gravitate towards the indicators though. I was
one of them. You'll learn lots of things either way. Good luck.

Well, not easy to answer that short question. Generally I can recommend you to learn Ichimoku like I can recommend you to learn price action. From my point of view they put well together. I personally do not regard Ichimoku as an single Indicator. For me it is more a kind of system. But I also have to point out, that I do not use it as an isolated system at the moment. I use it as an confirmation system for things I am expecting to happen out of a cycle or an EW perspective.
