How to trade using NinjaTrader Ichimoku indicator?

Ichimoku Indicator consists of five main components (indicator lines), each of which has its own name, construction method and function assigned to it:

  • Tenkan-Sen Line (Turning line) – is the fastest of the Ichimoku lines and shows the current trend with its slope (up slope – uptrend, down – downtrend, sideways – flat). Defines the short-term trend vector.
  • Kijun-Sen Line (Standard line) – like Tenkan-Sen, it shows the current trend direction. It is a long-term trend vector.
  • Chikou Span Line (Lagging line) – helps to visualise the relationship between current and previous trends, as well as identify potential trend reversals.
  • Senkou Span A Line (1st leading line) is the first line of the cloud (Kumo) and is derived from Tenkan and Kijun, being their mean value. Senkou Span A functions as support / resistance for the current trend.
  • Senkou Span B Line (2nd leading line) – is the second line of the cloud ( Kumo) and the slowest of the lines of the indicator,in addition, Senkou Span B has been shifted forward by the Kijun calculation period. Acts as the second support/resistance line of the current trend.

 

Essentially a cloud  (Kumo) formed by Senkou lines Span A and B, is the zone of support and resistance of the trend. And also a trend indicator: if the price is in the cloud, the market is flat, and if the price is outside the cloud, there is a trend in the market (if the cloud is at the top, then the trend is down, and if it is down, then it is up).

The color of the cloud also indicates the current trend. If the cloud is colored in the color of the first line (dark green), then the market is in an uptrend, and if it is in the color of the second line (coral red), it is a downtrend.
