How to Use Ichimoku Charts in Forex Trading

Price Action Trading- The Greatest System.

When I first started trading, I used to add all indicators on my chart. MACD, RSI, super trend, ATR, ichimoku cloud, Bollinger Bands, everything!
My chart was pretty messy. I understood nothing and my analysis was pretty much just a gamble.
Nothing worked.
DISCLOSURE- I've written this article on another sub reddit, if you've already read it, you make skip this one and come back tomorrow.
Then I learned price action trading. And things started to change. It seemed difficult and unreliable at first.
There's a saying in my country. "Bhav Bhagwan Che" it means "Price Is GOD".
That holds true in the market.
Amos Every indicator you see is based on price. RSI uses open/close price and so does moving average. MACD uses price.
Price is what matters the most.
Everything depends on the price, and then the indicators send a signal.
Price Action trading is trading based on Candlestick patterns and support and resistance. You don't use any indicators (SMA sometimes), use plot trend lines and support and resistance zones, maybe Fibs or Pivot points.
It is not 100% successful, but the win rate is quite high if you know how to analyse it correctly.
How To Learn Price Action Trading?
YouTube channels- 1. Trading with Rayner Teo. 2. Adam Khoo. 3. The Chart Guys. 4. The Trading Channel (and some other channels including regional ones).
Books- 1. Technical Analysis Explained. 2. The trader's book of volume. 3. Trading price action trends. 4. Trading price action reversals. 5. Trading price actions ranges. 6. Naked forex. 7. Technical analysis of the financial markets.
I think this is enough information to help you get started.
Price Action trading includes a few parts.
  1. Candlestick patterns You'll have to be able to spot a bullish engulfing or a bearish engulfing pattern. Or a doji or a morning star.
  2. Chart Patterns. The flag, wedge, channels or triangles. These are often quite helpful in chart analysis without using indicators.
  3. Support or Resistance. I've seen people draw 15 lines of support and resistance, this just makes your chart messy and you don't know where the price will take a support.
You can also you the demand and supply zone concept if you're more comfortable with that.
  1. Volume. There's a quote "Boule precedes price". Volume analysis is a bit hard, but it's totally worth learning. Divergence is also a great concept.
  2. Multiple time frames. To confirm a trend or find the long term support or resistance, you can use a higher time frame. Plus, it is more reliable and divergence is way stronger on it.
You can conclude everything to make a powerful system. Like if there's a divergence (price up volume down) and there's a major resistance on some upper level and a double top is formed,
That's a very reliable strategy to go short. Combinations of various systems work very good imo.
Does this mean that indicators are useless?
No, I use moving averages and RSI quite frequently. Using price action and confirming it through indicators gives me a higher win rate.

Is this a strategy?

I just started out in FX this week after a 25% loss of my portfolio with stock options. I'm trying out forex and built out a strategy that relies on the Ichimoku clouds and I trade only for couple of minutes. So far I've recovered 5% of my loss but I might just have been lucky. I usually trade on EUR.USD.
My strategy so far goes like this. I follow the minute chart, enter a trade once a trend had been set (ie, price above or bellow the cloud), if the price changes trend on the minute chart by going bellow/above the cloud I close and take the loss, if the price continues to go in my direction I hold until I'm happy with the profit or nears a price resistance.
The disadvantages I see, it's slow, no big profits unless there's news and if there's big volatility I might endup going on loss. What I like about the strategy is that it makes me responsible, it enforces a stop loss for me that is not just based on gut feeling, also if a trend becomes strong, my stop goes higher and higher, thus securing profit.
What you guys think about it? is it stupid? is there a way to improve it?

Some Ichimoku Cloud experts around?

I read a lot about Ichimoku and wanted to backtest this strategy:
https://www.forex.academy/ichimoku-strategy-2-k-cross-the-day-trading-strategy/
I need a little help. What I got so far is calculating all the lines, getting the crosses and directions.
But what does "Chikou Span in open space mean"? No other line or the price is below or above (depending on the direction) the chikou span? Wouldn't Step 5: "Price, Tenkan-Sen, Kijun-Sen, and Chikou Span should not be in the Cloud. If they are, it should be a thick Cloud.". contradict the Chikou Span beeing in open space?
About "thick Cloud". Is that the distance between span A and span B?

Thank you!

Noob here, can you confirm my strategy has any chance of winning?

People with Forex mentors. How has it helped you?

Good evening/morning depending on from where you're from. I've gone through baby pips and the udemy course. Watched and obscene amount of you tube videos. I feel as though I have and okay grasp on the technical aspect, I can tell I've only got a minimal grasp of it but definitely enough to lose my all my money. So far my demo account is in the negative but, I only just decided on a system that fits my personality. I'm currently using the ichimoku cloud 1hr candles and checking 30min and 4hr time frames to finalize and fine tune my entry.
So, what I would like to know is. I've only heard mentors mentioned on reddit. But it seems mentors are something that people use judging by the communities of gurus who get people together to call out trades.
Is it usually recommended to have a mentor? I've been considering trying to get a forex discord channel started maybe separate channels into trading systems? Are there any open groups to join or discord channels to get into? It's the weekend now and i find myself biting at the bit for forex stuff and of course no trading on the weekends. I feel like I've run out of relevant info I can get off of "sell your training course people". What should I do while I wait for Australia to open on Sunday?
BTW you people are awesome and I enjoy going through the posts and getting fresh perspectives on my new found joy of testing strategies and throwing fake money away.

WHAT’S THE BEST FOREX INDICATOR?

So you've begun forex exchanging and are amped up for how a lot of cash you're going to make, you should simply stall out in. In any case, when would it be advisable for you to exchange? Where would it be a good idea for you to enter? Which money sets would it be advisable for you to take a gander at?

Envision if there was an answer that let you know precisely when to enter an exchange!
New kid on the block dealer, meet Mr. Marker. Disregard those senseless climbing ashy candles, that poo is simply excessively mind boggling.
What on earth is a bullish overwhelming flame development at any rate? I'm a new kid on the block, I don't have a clue, or care, I simply need to make cash damn it! Demonstrate to me the most straightforward approach to make cash at the present time!
Sound commonplace?
These mystical pointers will guide you. Like a Magic 8-ball. They'll demonstrate to you the route to the heavenly place that is known for forex magnificence, where the avenues are cleared in green pips, and everybody you meet gives you a bar of bullion, since you merit it.
It helps me to remember my most loved Guns n Roses track "Bring me down to the heaven city where the pips are green and the diagrams are beautiful, goodness won't you please take me home, hold up ouw"
In this way, what precisely is a MACD, CCI, ATR, RSI or a ridiculous Stochastic!
They all solid so logical; without a doubt they should be great?
All things considered, I'm sorry to learn your air pocket… yet this is simply one more approach to peruse value developments in the market (a few brokers like to call this value activity). A marker is parcel more like salt and pepper than Colonel Sanders 12 mystery herbs and flavors.
On the off chance that you just learn one thing today, make it this: As merchants, we just approach a constrained measure of data.
These are the main two things we know without a doubt:
What cost is presently?
What cost was 1min, 5mins, 15mins, 1hr (you get the thought) prior
That is it.
All markers are doing is demonstrating to you this data in an alternate organization.
Presently, for all the pointer fans out there, you'll be satisfied to know it's not all foolishness. Pointers are intended to indicate past examples in the market that probably won't be anything but difficult to see with the stripped eye. What's more, the hypothesis goes, in the event that you can distinguish an example from an earlier time, at that point you'll have the capacity to anticipate what's to come. In any case, that is a discussion for one more day.
Will forex dealers foresee what's to come? That is an incredible theme for my next blog entry… hold tight, let me record that…
Alright, I'm back. Presently, the current theme – Which pointer would it be advisable for you to utilize?
Whichever one you need.
Apologies, I realize that is most likely a bit of disappointing…
All it's doing is demonstrating to you what you definitely know (present and past market cost) in an alternate visual configuration. So discover a pointer you see, at that point stay with it.
My solitary suggestion is to abstain from running different pointers without a moment's delay since you'll likely befuddle yourself.
Picture result for MT4 window with pointers
It would appear that it's a great opportunity to purchase, sell, hold and turn.
By and by, I like to exchange bare. That is correct, starker's.
Why?
You will probably discover once you watch the graphs for a considerable length of time, you won't require the spiritualist Ichimoku Cloud to furnish you with a climate figure. You'll have the capacity to gaze toward the sky and tell for yourself whether you'll require an umbrella for the session ahead.

$GIMO Chart DD and stuff

Ticker: $GIMO
Exchange: NYSE
Industry: Software
Overview: $GIMO offers solutions that deliver visibility and control of traffic accross networks. It has a presence in the United States; Rest of Americas; Europe; Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific. (Source: Reuters)
In January, $GIMO reported prelimiary Q4 results that caused a crash of almost 20%. Of course institutional downgrades soon followed. Now, the company is operating at it's "new" value, and looks to be at a fair price. This post will outline when to buy, and when to sell in an effort to make a short-term gain. Personally, I like playing options to get the most bang for my buck.
That being said, I believe $GIMO will continue it's uptrend through to the middle of next week before it either peaks, or rallies, and here's why...
Ichimoku Cloud:
Figure A
If you'd like to read up on Ichimoku clouds, check out this article. Otherwise, the TL;DR is that when the pink, green, and light-blue lines cross in to the purple cloud, there's a good chance there will be a rally of some sort.
Aside from that, you want to notice the green line and how it is starting to trend upwards. This alone is not enough to say whether or not you should expect it to continue, but it's a good starting indicator...
MACD:
Figure B
You can learn about the MACD over here.
What you want to notice, is that the green line is starting to turn around, and the blue is about to as well. This would be a nice 'sweet spot'. Scroll down in the article to Figure 4 and look at the 2nd circled 'Buy' spot. Looks familiar, eh? TL;DR looks like it's trending up.
Stochasitcs:
Figure C
This is the Stoachastic Momentum Index (SMI). We are using it as an indicator to tell us whether or not the 'run' is over ($GIMO has been green 2 days in a row now). Since the two lines look like they just turned around and are still near the bottom, it leads us to believe that there is still room to run. I personally think it'll be bullish through next week.
More info on using this indicator can be found here
Figure D
This figure shows the Stochastics-Fast chart. Similar to the Stochastic Momentum Index (SMI), this is to help identify whether or not the stock is overbought or oversold. More information can be found here.
This chart is the LEAST desirable out of all the charts posted so far. Right now it says its approaching the overbought territory, so tread carefully!
Conclusion: I believe $GIMO will dip or stay relatively flat tomorrow (Friday Mar 10th), this will give a little more leeway on the overbought territory which allows for a little more of a run throughout next week. So my play would be to wait for a dip tomorrow, buy, then hold through to Weds or Thurs next week for a small run. After a few smaller green days Mon-Weds, I think it will dip a bit, until the MACD levels out. Not necessarily to 'oversold' territory, but enough to run back up again and a little higher than the previous peak (seen in first chart around mid Feb).
Well, I guess that's all. Let me know what you guys think, and if I'm an idiot that's gonna lose every last penny or not. Or if I'm doing everything wrong, etc... Otherwise, good luck and godspeed.

The Complete Ichimoku Course - From Beginner To Advanced

The Complete Ichimoku Course - From Beginner To Advanced Hello Guys, In this video I want to introduce you to the main system / Indicator that I use for trading which gives me the most consistent profits and reliability. The Indicator or system that I use is called ‘Ichimoku’. Full title is 'Ichimoku Kinko Hyo'. And was invented by a Japanese trader called Goichi Hosoda (細田悟一 Hosoda Goichi), a Japanese trader / journalist who used to be known as Ichimoku Sanjin, which can be translated as "what a man in the mountain sees". Ichimoku translates into He spent 30 years perfecting the technique before releasing his findings to the general public in the late 1960s. Ichimoku Kinko Hyo in Japanese translates to 'one glance equilibrium chart' or 'instant look at the balance chart' and is sometimes referred to as "one glance cloud chart" based on the unique "clouds" that feature in ichimoku charting, reffered to as the Kumo Clouds. Hosada's Ichimoku system incorporates some very useful and effective trading signals, which consist of the following. We have the chikou crossing through price, that's the first signal, we have a tenkensen bounce and break, we have a kijunsen bounce and break, there’s the kumo cloud bounce and breakout, and the tenkensen and kijunsen cross, which is normally abbreviated to the TK cross. This complete charting and trend indicator forms a very powerful, and useful aid in our trading, and, to be used to it’s full potential, all these elements need to be used, and studied in conjunction with each other.

I also talk about money management, price action, when to trade and when not to trade, and my preferred forex pairs for trading. I also cover support and resistance, divergence, moving averages along with profit targets, stops and even the psychology of trading. So if you would like to learn about this ichimoku system, visit my website which is tradingtoprofit.com and sign up for the course which is over 6.5 hours long and split into various sections for you to learn at your own pace and accessible anytime at a later date to refresh your knowledge.

Questions about Ichimoku Clouds

I've been reading this week a lot about Ichimoku clouds. I am incredibly new to the Forex world, but I cannot seem to find anyone really using this outside of Japan.
From what I can tell at a quick glance is that it seems to capture a lot of the price movements. For example, in the USD/RUB charts you can see the moving averages cross about July 14th high above the cloud. It looks like if you bought in on the next price breakout on the 17th you would have caught the USD gain on the Ruble. I know the Ruble's fall is mostly due to oil prices and geopolitics right now, so I am also looking at GBP/USD at the beginning of this year. The averages cross in mid-February, catching the fall, and then releasing at the end of May before it recovers. Am I wrong in this, and, if so, how?
This is the reading I've been using
TL;DR:
Two questions regarding Ichimoku clouds:
Thanks for the help!
