Entry
The entry for the Senkou span cross trading strategy is relatively simple, though, as mentioned above, entries do require even more attention to the overall trend on higher time frames before executing any trades. After determining the trend on the higher time frames, the trader looks for a fresh Senkou span cross in the same direction as the overall trend that has been solidified by a close on the execution time frame. Once they identify a suitable opportunity, they initiate a position in the direction of the Senkou span sentiment. As in all Ichimoku trading strategies, traders will be well-advised to consider the relative strength of the cross (price's location relative to the kumo) as well as the sentiment provided by the remaining Ichimoku components at the time of the cross in order to ensure the most optimum entry.

Exit
The exit from a Senkou span cross trade is generally signalled by a Senkou span cross in the opposite direction of the trade, though other exit signals may be taken depending upon the trader's risk tolerance and profit goals.

Stop-Loss Placement
Being a "big picture" trend trading strategy like the kumo breakout strategy, the stop-loss for the Senkou span cross strategy is placed on the opposite side of the kumo that the trade is transpiring on, 10 - 20 pips away from the kumo boundary.
