I've learned and appreciated these slides previously, now I've done another time and found a point not completely clear.
On slide 2 you say: "I can also expect the direction of the breakout depending on the last direction of the KS"
1) If the last step was up do you suppose that it will continue up after the long flat period or reverse?
2) In another slide you explain well that if the KS is flat for a long period it start hallucinating and we should not follow it. So if it start hallucinating and gives a small step up or down is this the "last direction" or you mean the last trend direction before the long flat period?
As a long-time trend follower that utilizes basic candlesticks and patterns with key level entries I am certain Ichimoku will be a great addition to my arsenal.
I also appreciate your humbleness when appropriate and your lack of compassion as necessary for laziness. IMHO - Fellow trend followers and traders please note that "Freedom is not Free" and to gain our independence we need the correct "tools" for the job. I am not a rookie, however after 30+ years in the markets I am always a student seeking knowledge and sharing technics that provide excellent risk to reward results. I treat trading as a business and it requires hard work and dedication to achieve success. This gentlemen deserves respect and has earned mine due to his shared enthusiasm. His time is valuable and he chooses to share. I am grateful and will listen with both ears wide open and will ask only those questions that I cannot find within his vast published information. Well done Ichi!!
You are most welcome and it is my honor to learn Ichimoku from your sharing and persistent approach.
