1. Introduction

Last month for the article contest I published an article giving an introduction to the Ichimoku Kinko Hyo (Ichimoku) indicator, it was a beginner’s introduction as I am a beginner with the Ichimoku. Since then I have had some time to experiment with the Ichimoku learning what does and does not work when using it to place trades.
This article will better explain the components of the Ichimoku and offer insight into how to identify and place trades accurately and safely. Keep in mind that some parts may be reiterated from my previous article.
2. Teachings of the Ichimoku
2.1 Teachings of the Tenkan-Sen

The Tenkan-Sen referred to as the conversion line, is calculated using the midpoint of the highest high and the lowest low over 9 periods.
Figure 1. Ichimoku, Tenkan-Sen on NZD/JPY 1 Day Chart
In Figure 1 I have removed all lines except for the Tenkan-Sen. On its own the Tenkan-Sen can show momentum, we can see it steeply curving upwards on NZD/JPY which shows significant bullish momentum, if the momentum was bearish it would curve downwards and if there was indecision in the market it would become flat.
2.2. Teachings of the Kijun-Sen
The Kijun-Sen referred to as …

The Ichimoku Kinko Hyo (meaning ‘’One look equilibrium chart’&rsquo otherwise known as the Ichimoku Cloud or simply just Ichimoku is an incredibly versatile indicator that in the right hands can provide a trader with support and resistance, trend direction, momentum and even trading signals. This indicator is the most popular indicator among Japanese Traders of all markets and was created by Journalist Goichi Hosoda in 1968 then published in his book in 1969, however he reportedly first began creating this indicator in the late 1930’s.
While this indicator is overwhelming at first, after reading this article you will gain a basic understanding of how the indicator works and how to make basic use of it.

Petróleo Barato, antesala de recesión mundial o final de la 3ª revolución industrial?
Mis comienzos en el Trading, se centraron en la operativa del petróleo, su precio se determina por multitud de factores, pero los más importantes son: oferta y demanda, el valor del dólar USD y el sentimiento de mercado. Este último factor es generado por la reacción de los participantes, provocando variaciones en el precio a corto plazo, el motivo es la percepción de obstáculos o mejoras en el flujo de entrega o producción de petróleo. El sentimiento de mercado es el que produce la volatilidad en el mercado y donde buscaba oportunidades para entrar diariamente, en principio use como indicadores técnicos, CCI y Bandas Bolinger, pero con el paso del tiempo me aficione a usar ICHIMOKU, que es el que utilizo actualmente con muy buena satisfacción. Con la información obtenida del mercado de petróleo, operaba también cruces de forex donde el dólar canadiense estuviese presente, debido a la vinculación que existe.
Estrategia Trading: En mis operativas uso el indicador ICHIMOKU (9,26,52) en gráficos Diaro y 4 Horas, a fin de apoyarme en las decisiones uso como oscilador RSI 9 Opero en Compra cuando obse…

Technical analysis is a useful tool that allows a trader to anticipate certain market activity before it occurs. These anticipations are drawn from previous chart patterns, probabilities of certain trade setups and a trader's previous experience. Over time, anticipation can eliminate the need for over-analyzing market direction as well as identifying clear, objective areas of significance.
In this article i will write on the importance of anticipating trades with technical indicators.
Technical analysis is often referred to as some sort of black magic used to time the market. However, what many outside of the financial world don't realize is that traders don't try to predict the future. Instead, they create strategies that have a high probability of succeeding - situations where a trend or market movement can be anticipated.
When deciding on whether or not to make a trade, you likely have your own method of entering and exiting the market - you should decide on these before clicking the buy/sell button. Technical traders use certain tools such as the moving average convergence divergence (MACD), Ichimoku , relative strength index (RSI), stochastic…
