Ichimoku Trading Strategies

Traders typically set their entries and exits around the borders of the filled-out part of Ichimoku (The Kumo), most often with the help of other indicators.

As mentioned, Ichimoku works best on longer timeframes. The reason is that on shorter timeframes the Kumo cloud “flips” too often and the information you get from it is close to random. Still, some traders like to use Ichimoku for scalping. We believe there are better tools for that, but then whatever works for you…
