I've just discovered this site and have been looking at Ichimoku postings.
Here's something that works well for me:
I trade "traditional" Ichi on 3-minute bar charts using all the lines and cloud support-resistance for entry.
HOWEVER, I also have the Ichi running on a 5-minute chart on the same screen. The 5-min sets the [u]trend[u].
If price on the 5 is above the cloud, I only look for long setups on the 3-minute.
If price on the 5-minute is below the cloud, only shorts on the 3.
This works very well in all the markets I...Ignored
Maybe you could include a chart example.
