The entry for the kumo breakout trading strategy is simple - when price closes above/below the kumo, the trader
places a trade in the direction of the breakout. Nevertheless, care does need to be taken to ensure the breakout is not a
"head fake" which can be especially prevalent when the breakout takes place from a flat top/bottom kumo. To
ensure the flat top/bottom is not going to attract price back to the kumo, it is always advisable to look for another
Ichimoku structure to "anchor" your entry to just above/below the kumo breakout. This anchor can be anything from a
key level provided by the chikou span, a kumo shadow or any other appropriate structure that could act as additional
support/resistance to solidify the direction and momentum of the trade.
Kumo breakout traders also make good use of the leading kumo's sentiment before committing to a trade. If the
leading kumo is a Bear kumo and the kumo breakout is also Bear, then that is a very good sign that the breakout is not
an aberration of excessive volatility , but rather a true indication of market sentiment. If the leading kumo contradicts
the direction of the breakout, then the trader may want to either wait until the kumo does agree with the direction of
the trade or use more conservative position sizing to account for the increased risk.

The exit from a kumo breakout trade is the easiest part of the whole trade. The trader merely waits for their stop-loss
to get triggered as price exits the opposite side of the kumo on which the trade is transpiring. Since the trader has been
steadily moving their stop-loss up with the kumo during the entire lifespan of the trade, this assures they maximize
their profit and minimize their risk.
