The purpose of the base and conversion lines is to give an indication of the current trend but the numerous crossings and false signals make it noisy and unreliable. This new indicator dubbed the the Ichimoku Cloud Pivot
is based on an average of the IC
leading spans without the time offset which are further filtered through a Donchian
Channel. The result is the purple line which has fewer crossings and reliably serves as a resistance/support as shown in the diagram. It can be used in instances where the cloud fails to give a clear signal of the current trend. The brown line is the standard conversion line and is shown for reference.
