    One of the clearest, simplest overviews of the Ichimoku cloud trading system that I have seen, using this for close to a year successfully, for swing trading in the major indices.

    Nice Video David, Are you going to make a follow-up video on how to read and use the Ichimoku cloud to pickup possible signals?

  • Jamael Nettles

    July 17, 2017

    This was the best fucking video I've seen so far! (Sorry for the language. I'm just super excited and grateful!) I learned more in this short video than I did watching 3 one hour long videos! Thanks so much. I'm going to watch all your videos now.

    thanks very much, great explanation.
    could u please tell what indicators should we use for intra day trading?

  • Fatih

    July 25, 2017

    Such a nice explanation. Very brief yet very helpful. However I still have some questions. I would appretiate if you could answer them.
    1- What is the main purpose of lagging chart? Why do we need it?
    2- What do support and resistance levels in future exactly mean? In your example the support level in 26 days is very near to present price. What does it mean for me?

    Now I understand! 🙂 Thank you David!

  • MrOmej

    So if the cloud projects support and resistance levels 26 days ahead of the current price does that mean that when looking at a chart on the hourly, the cloud will project 26 hours ahead of the current price?

    Its awesome video, the best explanation Ichimoku I ever seen and I watched plenty of them. Sometimes "experts" focusing on Japanese names instead of essence like you did. TX a lot !

    David your simplification is great. I agree with your assessment on most youtubers attempt to explain the cloud. I just recently started research on trading and TA. You are absolutely right. It was complex. Most people uses the original Japanese terminology. Personally I simplified it to T-line,B-line, S-A, S-B and L. So much easier.

  • Richard Dodd

    Great video – thanks – just a question when looking at the cloud. Is this the 1st signal you look at or just an indication of the strength of the change. In you example you give the "buy" signal when the price breaks out above the cloud, but at this point the cloud is still red. By the time the cloud turns Green 70% of the price increase has already occurred.

    Amazing. I watched several other videos on this – and each time found myself having to decipher what the heck they were saying, as if I was translating a new-to-me language in my head. Thanks for the plain speak – I learned more here in five minutes than I did in an hour's worth of the other vids.

    Think of making a Udemy lesson about this but with more in depth over time. Dont be reluctant to use the japanese names in lesson 2.
    Then do applications in advanced lessons. U can get a good money for this. U already doing it for free 😄
