Cloud Charts : Trading Successful with the Ichimoku Technique by David Linton
David Linton, the author of Cloud Charts, had his interest in Ichimoku
charts `sparked' during a presentation by Rick Bensignor at the 2004
IFTA conference in Madrid. David had heard of the method prior to the
conference but credits Rick with presenting it in an `understable' way.
David set out on a quest for Ichimoku knowledge. He researched the
internet, questioned Japanese delegates at subsequent IFTA conferences,
sought out Rick Bensignor at conferences and meetings and even flew to
Tokyo. The fruit of that quest is the book, Cloud Charts.
The Ichimoku method is now fast becoming popular in Western trading
rooms and is available on almost all technical analysis software. David
must take some credit for turning what seemed to be an exotic and
complicated method into an easily understandable and robust trading and
analysis tool for non-Japanese speaking technical analysts.
So, what is Ichimoku? The full name of the method is Ichimoku Kinko Hyo
which means 'at one glance balance bar chart'. Ichimoku charts were
devised by Goichi Hosoda , a Tokyo journalist, who believed that once
the method was fully understood, one could comprehend the exact state of
a market at a glance. Most of the Ichimoku indicators represent
equilibrium in one time frame or another and price action is generally
analysed with regard to whether the market is in equilibrium, moving
away from it or reverting back to it. By their nature, the various
indicators also offer dynamic areas of support or resistance.
Cloud Charts is divided into three parts. The first is for the novice
technical analyst and is designed to give them an understanding of many
basic technical analysis concepts involved with not only Ichimoku
analysis but also traditional techniques. More experienced technical
analysts may wish to skip this part.
Part two introduces the reader to the basic indicators used in Ichimoku
charts (David calls them cloud charts). This section deals with the
derivation and interpretation of:
1. The Turning Line (also called the Conversion Line)
2. The Standard Line ( also called the Base Line)
3. The Cloud Span A ( also called the Cloud Span 1)
4. The Cloud Span B (also called the Cloud Span 2)
5. The Lagging Line ( also called the Lagging Span)
Part two offers a guide to applying Ichimoku charts in a multiple time
frame sense, as well as the often overlooked Wave Principle, Price
Targets and Time Span Principle. However, the application of Ichimoku
charts to price and time projection is very subjective and for that
reason alone the projections are quite often not utilised by even
Looking at an Ichimoku chart, it's no surprise that analysts are
sometimes turned off by the busyness of the chart. It can look like
chaos to the uninitiated but the key to getting past that is
understanding the formula to each indicator, how they combine with each
other, how they represent a consensus of price action in different time
frames and colour-coding. In part two David explains construction and
interpretation of the charts in a manner that is easy for any newcomer
to technical analysis let alone a professional on a trading desk.
Part three, is where we are encouraged to think outside of the box.
Here, the use of Ichimoku charts are combined with other technical
analysis techniques, alternative time inputs into the indicators are
suggested and the application to market breadth analysis is considered.
There is also a chapter on back testing for the quantitative traders to
Overall, this book, in an easily read manner, brings together the body
of knowledge of a Japanese technical analysis method which was once
thought of as exotic and over-complicated. It has potential to become
