Thanks again for sharing the Ichimoku trading system on this forum.
In relation to Ichimoku, I read that in Metatrader 4 version, the previous one, there are quite a few alerts available for this set up. Do you know if any alerts are available for Metatrader 5? That would be very handy.
But you know - I am using Ichimoku for technical analysis on H1, H4 and D1 timeframe, and my trades here are just an example only. So, it may be useless to have alerts for H4 and D1 timeframe.
As to MaksiGen indicator so - yes, it may be good to have alerts because this indicator is used for M1 and M5 timeframe for trading too.

And I think we all know that they are using different "forex english" in some cases. So, I am just translating some terms/words I am using for technical Ichimoku analysis onto "coding english" language :) :
