Kijun often works as a resistance. In this example, we saw that during a correction Kijun acted as a resistance. A clear signal to place trailing stop loss above Kijun. Thanks to that single Ichimoku line we could catch a hefty portion of a move. On weekly chart, we can spot easily ABC move.
When to enter? I left Ichimoku on chart. On higher time frames price rarely crosses with Kijun-sen. When it managed to close higher than Kijun-sen, it was a good entry point. Does it mean that this move ends here? We do not know that. We only know that this is a good place to close position. Ichimoku is great in long term trading, but you can also use it in short term trading. The problem is that Ichimoku is rather complex we have signals from Kijun, cloud etc.
Add to that fact that we have to check the situation on other time frames. It may be tough for someone new in Ichimoku.
Even for me, it is not easy when I scan many pairs. I included to my trading with Ichimoku an indicator called ichi Monitor.
It is not written by me. Few years back there was a very good blog ichi com about trading with Ichimoku. The blog is not around anymore, but author who was also a programmer shared some indicators on his site. To this day, you can find them on various FX forums. Take a look at this 4-hour Bund chart.
Thanks to the ichi we know that on all time frames situation is bullish. Also, we had a buy signal from Ichimoku and, of course, a nice looking ABC Fibonacci pattern. It looks good and should be a good long trade. Long trade with help from ichi Monitor. NZDJPY on 4-hour chart was in a range move, but it was clear that ABC pattern is in place.
Also, there was a resistance from cloud and resistance line. From ichi we knew that situation is bearish. If we would enter in that moment then we should wait for a break below temporary support line marked on the chart. Short trade. Ichi Monitor shows bearish situation on other timeframes. The situation is not clear on all time frames, but we are on 15m and it is a downtrend. Also, 30m and 1h are down. After correction to There was a sell signal from ichi and moment later a confirmation from MACD.
A good entry point. Mixed situation, but downtrend is also on higher time frame. We had a signal from ichi, but price was above a recent low. We should wait for close below that level green support line and then enter short. You can see in the right top corner that situation was bearish on all time frames. Good trading conditions for short. Retail trader. I trade mostly Forex, indices and some commodities. I prefer technical analysis, but I do not forget about fundamentals.
It took me a while to be profitable and learn how to trade. I like trading, but I also like to write about it and teach other people. That is why I started this blog.

Ichimoku Kinko Hyo is a Japanese investing technique. It provides all — trading signals, resistance and support levels. It is very different from normal western techniques such as trading with moving averages, but after a while you should understand it easily.
It was created around 50 years ago by Japanese journalist Goichi Hosoda. He started to work on Ichimoku before World War II. To the West, this technique is known from 90s, just like candles it was unknown for many decades. Later we will check how it can be used in trading stocks and Forex. Ichimoku Kinko Hyo is build from 5 averages notice — these are different averages than standard moving average that you know :.
Senkou Span A and Senkou Span B — area between them is called Kumo, or simply just Ichimoku cloud. This is a resistance and support area Kijun-Sen — longer signal average Tenkan-Sen — shorter signal average Chikou Span — this average is shifted back by 26 periods.
Usually, we look for support or resistance right at moving average or support line. Ichimoku cloud is different — it is area of possible resistance or support.
The thicker cloud is, the stronger resistance or support should be at this place. When price manage to break out or break down from cloud, then this is a strong signal to take position, because it happens rarely:. It is longer average, based on 26 periods. As you can see, it acts different. You can compare Kijun-Sen with normal moving average:. It is shorter average. Based with Kijun Sen it gives signals to buy and sell more on that later.
The main idea behind Chikou Span is that it helps to compare current price with price from 26 periods before. The end of Chikou Span is the current price close. Based on that we know if the current sentiment is bullish Chikou Span above price or bearish Chikou Span below price. We have few types of trading signals from Ichimoku based on Tenkan-Sen and Kijun-Sen cross. There are also signals to open a trade when price break from the cloud.
You will see all that in the examples and it should be clear. I like to invest with Ichimoku in longer time frames. It is great when you look for entry point, not so great when it comes to exit, but we will also deal with that. What I look on chart is mostly breakout from cloud. For me this is the best signal from all you get from Ichimoku. I check history, few years back, to see how price reacted around cloud. Were there many good signals after cloud breakout?
Sometimes price action for current stock is so specific that this does not work so well. Then I move to another stock. When history confirms that price works well with cloud, I make decision or not.
I place stop usually below cloud. Sometimes price is already above cloud and trend is getting stronger. Then I look at Kijun Sen and Tenkan Sen. If Tenkan Sen is above Kijun Sen, I have a confirmation of uptrend. Then I like to look for breakout from resistance.
Drawing resistance and support lines is very important here. Remember — it is weekly chart so if there is a resistence line, say, from top from six months before, there is a big chance that price will respect that resistance. If it manages to breakout, then it is a good signal to go long. So in that case Ichimoku is like a background, but important one.
I do not follow signals blindly. So when there is a breakout from cloud, I check other things. Most important for me are trend lines. Monthly chart of Adobe is a good example. We had two breakouts from cloud which failed because of resistance lines.
Finally price managed to breakout from cloud and resistance lines — this was a perfect moment to go long. Long trade on break above cloud and resistance lines. If trend is strong, then price is above Kijun Sen. This is my stop loss. I do not wait for Tenkan Sen and Kijun Sen cross to close position because this signal comes on most cases too late. Other technique you can use is to set stop loss below recent low. This will be your exit point. This is a little to perfect example of trade.
I use very often breakout from cloud as signal to enter. Exit place was when price closed below Kijun Sen. It is not always that easy but it is rather a good example of potential this signal has. Adding oscillators to help decide if breakout is valid. Problem with breakouts from cloud is that you may see some false breakouts.
In the chart above the first long breakout was false, the second one was correct and trade should be closed above Kijun Sen. You can try to add another condition to the breakouts from cloud.
This trade worked great — long at cloud breakout and close below Kijun Sen, but… You can see on the left and right side that there were some breakouts, which did not bring strong trend. I would not call all of them false. Some worked out, but with smaller range of moves. That is why it is so important to manage wisely your stop losses.
Signal to go long break from cloud , stop loss would be below cloud. When cloud is thin, I place stop loss below cloud. In this case we took the first long breakout and set stop loss below cloud. Move up did not start rigth away, but ROST hold above cloud and is going up strong. Open and close position based on Tenkan and Kijun lines. Sometimes the trend is strong and price will be far away from cloud, so no signals from cloud breakout.
When you see a situation like that, you may use breakout below or above Kijun Sen as a signal. First trade — after correction price returned above Kijun Sen black. We got signal to go long. An exit was here below Tenkan Sen because we spotted that price is most of the time above Tenkan and Kijun is far away. Second trade — same scenario. A long breakout above Kijun Sen and close below Tenkan Sen because Kijun Sen was too far.
I hope that now you understand Ichimoku pretty well. I like to join Ichimoku with Fibonacci lines. Ichimoku gives me a look at current situation.
It can also give us a signal to take positions. So in short:. This is an example you will see many times. Move from A to B, then correction which goes inside a cloud.
Break from the cloud is a good Ichimoku signal. If price breaks out above the cloud, then it is a buy signal. If it breaks below cloud, it is sell signa. In this case, after correction to C — Also, there was a break below Kijun line — another bearish signal. This was a start of a stronger move down. Break from the cloud as a trading signal. Another example when there is a correction to the cloud and after that a break from the cloud and signal to sell.
Sometimes the cloud is far away from price. In the example below, we can see that C When a market is not in a range, this is a good indicator od possible price move. Indeed, in this case, it was. After a break below Kijun, we saw a strong move down.
