I may be interested in exploring the “Ichimoku Cloud.” Are there any postings here on that subject?

several postings including some with filters already finished, search for either "cloud" or "ichimoku" in the search bar at the top of the stockfetcher Forums page.

How was Saturday's mtg?

Thanks for the references, Ed. I’ll research them.

Locally (yesterday), I saw someone do an “Ichimoku” presentation. By the time he finished, I said to myself, “This can be done in StockFetcher.” That’s what prompted me to write this original post.

My biggest question — since Ichimoku computes a look-ahead — is what happens if the market does a quick downturn, how is that look-ahead calculation (timely) readjusted? I asked the presenter that question, and he admitted he didn’t have a good answer. You mean there is no Holy Grail?!

Gene, don't think you can do the look ahead on SF. I have looked at this before.

I am not an expert just relaying my experience.

If Ichimoku doesn’t have a look-ahead feature in SF, what would be the value of Ichimoku in SF?

Can someone confirm SafeTrade’s thoughts re: no look-ahead scripting possibility in SF?

Thanks you, mahkoh...

I will study and try out your suggested IchiMoku StockFetcher script. It has the raw numbers (9,26,52) that I saw in a demonstration earlier this week.

Have you ever used it in actual trading?

I often use it as entry and target points. Mostly for forex, but works for stocks as well. You'll often see price touching the KS line or the cloud before retracing.
