Hi @Abde

Thanks for your input - my chart looks slightly different ;-)
Marked in the chart the signal bar - and the exit/entry on closing of the following bar.
Underneath cloud is red.. Time of signal is in the blue oval - 10:32 (end).
The only change to my previous rules was to set the SL farther away which protected to
be caught by the short upmove some 10 min. later.
As you can see in my chart - only the cloud of the Ichimoku is relevant - I have erased
Tenkan Sen, Kijun Sen and Chikou Span. This makes it easy to read the main signals.

Hi @GFIs1

Thanks for answering my questions

Its weird that my cloud is green at your entry time. Do you use also the Ichimoku standard settings of 9,26,52?

... yes the settings 9, 26, 52 are the same...
but I am using a 213 seconds chart which is slightly different to the 3 min chart - try it with this setting

Looks like you have a vice versa coloring on the band - as our bands are very similar.
If you have a look on the thick green cloud in the center of your chart price is wandering from top to down.
Normally a red cloud is crossed by a short - and coming out underneath.
In my chart this same part of the cloud is red.

@GFIs1 Ok, that was the trick. Have reversed the coloring of the clouds and my attached chart looks now identical to yours. Must look for a better Ichimoku version without this programming issue.
Thanks for clarification

Hi @GFIs1

Did you took that last long trade? I took that long 1 tick above close of the entry bar and set a trailing stop 3 ticks below high of the bull cloud because of the intermarket weaknes. If it goes further I will trail 3 ticks below VWAP and thereafter, 3 ticks below first StdDev band and so on. what do you think?

I did not take the long.. as my chart has not yet given a secured signal.
As it is often so that the band in the afternoon shows not that accurate
pattern as in the morning - I decided to wait for lower prices.
Differently to your chart - my band did not create a turning point signal:

Will decide tomorrow.
The best one can do is to move stops near the price when price movement
is greater than 1% since entry. This is indeed adventurous but may at
least fix some money in the green ;-) as long we are near the screen
For this situation I haven't yet a game plan.

Bigger picture

Looking forward on my daily chart:
There is (In My View!) a big chance that in the last week of January
price should come back to a level of 7600 -
which means 7596...
Even this is not influencing the next day's movements I am having
that in mind to see the consolidation during this month being executed.

Good Trades!
