Candlestick trading has been a staple of technical traders for more than 20 years now, but relatively little has been written about or is known about the next iteration of Japanese trading – Ichimoku cloud charts. This system of trading was developed to compliment Candlesticks and make them more powerful for trend trading. Ichimoku Cloud charts are the Japanese answer to identifying trend line support & resistance, recognizing when a larger level of trend is reversing, Identifying continuation price points, and recognizing when consolidation should occur.
Ichimoku Charts are a completely different way of looking at and analyzing market data. Much like the candlesticks that preceded them, cloud charts are very picturesque.
