Choosing your entry points is a very critical issue in trading because it sets you up for your long term success.
The KS will help you greatly in this issue when considering where to enter. But remember that you must follow it. Meaning that if it is bullish then only look to buy at these points and if it bearish then only look to sell at these points.
so you are not taking the trade?
Well that will be my personal preference. But I stated what I thought was the safest strategy for those who follow me

What do you mean?
From your narration it is not clear to me whether you prefer a long or short in the present situation.
this is not a trade setup

it is for educational purposes

In this chart of the EURUSD;it is showing a consolidation period from about the Aril 1 to April 6-7. So how do you know where is the major trend? Up or down? Do you look at a higher time frame D 4H? How do you determine to enter a trade? By looking at the higher time frame first and then going to a lower time frame? Can you provide an example? Keep up the good work.
Well, I do not use multiple timeframe analysis nor do I think it is necessary with ichimoku

I've stated before in my material which available here, to follow the market follow the KS. That is the secret
I've also given detailed examples about how I could have traded 10 days so that it becomes clear.
I've also posted my trades for a while here also which you can look at and study and come back with questions if you have any

Good luck

Could you elaborate on how to choose the TPs using ichimoku?

Yes, God willing, I will
Excellent presentation, thank you!
It seems as if you use KS also as a momentum indicator, however in the classic viewpoint of Ichi, the momentum indicator is the TS.
Do you use them in combination or you rely only on the KS?
I use sometime multiple ichi (two) on the same chart to have an idea of the behaviour of different timeframes: if you would do that how would you interprete the two KS?

Thank and my best compliments

Thank you

Ichimoku is an integrated trading system. The more you know the better you are but even if you have a basic understanding of how to use the KS you will be profitable.

The issue of momentum is a dangerous one to discuss because it has different meanings depending on the current market structure and conditions. So it is not a general concept that you can apply to every situation. Accordingly, the element you use for measuring the momentum may differ in ichimoku.

As for using multiple timeframe analysis or adding another ichi on top of the original that really just complicates things without necessity because ichi already gives you multiple TF views of the market. Also, we have to remember why we are using the system, it is to analyze the market and choose entries and exits and what ichi offers in terms of those requirements is much more than you will ever need.

Good luck

How do I add the ichimoku like yours because I get weird colours whereas your one is really clear. I don't get the KS, options or anything similar in the dialogue box. Do you use programming to design your own? If not, please guide me. Thanks
look for cm enhanced ichimoku

good luck
Hi Ichi, thanks. Could you elaborate more on how to use the static and dynamic vales of KS for entry.

Static and dynamic values are used to calculate 2 things:
1. Entries
2. Stop loss levels

Choosing one or the other depends on market strength

Can you elaborate a little more on how market strength effects why you would choose Static over Dynamic or vise versa. I am a little confused since bother are KS and being such would make them theoretically 50% retracement levels. Which if I understand your previous slide correctly would signal if price is there the trend would be weaker.

Thanks in advance
Dynamic KS considers price without considering time
Static KS consider time without considering price

Static KS values are what the market sees and trades but if the market moves without visiting them, it is impossible to get a position so considering the dynamic value would come in handy at that time

There are other applications as well but a bit too complex to answer here. Maybe i'll do a slide for them some day
