There are certain technical indicators that are commonly used. Even if you use a technical analysis program on a daily basis, chances are there will be a few tools you haven’t used, or perhaps haven’t even noticed are there.

Ichimoku is probably one of these. But this indicator can help you find support and resistance levels. And it can help you pinpoint breakouts.

Read on to find out more about this trading tool…

The basics of Ichimoku

A Japanese journalist developed this technical indicator 45 years ago. It’s called Ichimoku Kinko Hyo (or Ichimoku or Ichi).

After 30 years of honing the tool, he perfected the method. All you need is some basic knowledge and you too can use Ichimoku to help your trading.

And one good thing about Ichimoku is it can be pretty profitable by using it at its default setting. So you don’t have to spend hours fiddling around with setting, Max Munroe in Forex Round-Up explains.

Have a look at the chart below. It shows you the Ichimoku indicator…

Yes, it doesn’t look complicated, but in fact it’s very simple.

Let’s take a closer look at what makes up this indicator.

The importance of the red and blue lines on Ichimoku

The first thing to look at is the red and blue lines. The blue line is the Kijum Sen line. The red line is the Tenkan Sen line. You can see them on the chart below…

To interpret these lines is easy. If the red line is above the blue line, it’s bullish. If the blue line is above the red line, it’s bearish.
