CM_Enhanced_Ichimoku Cloud-V5.2

3402 7 1402
New version of the improved Ichimoku cloud

Original by Chris Moody, great work.

This indicator is a colorized Ichimoku with colors that you can change for any component. Not many changes between 5.1 and 5.2, I fixed some labels and the crossing detection, as well as the default colors.
There's not much more left we can do without radically changing the original Ichimoku . We could implement full-multiframe but you can already do that by adding several times this indicator and changing the periods.

Displayed components:
  • Kijun-Sen: middle of the highest/lowest prices during the last 26 periods
  • Tenkan-Sen: middle of the highest/lowest prices during the last 9 periods
  • Senkou Span A ( SSA             ) : average of Kijun and Tenkan, projected 26 periods ahead
  • Senkou Span B ( SSB             ): middle of the highest/lowest prices during the last 52 periods, and projected 26 periods ahead
  • Chikou Span: the closing price projected 26 periods behind.
  • Kumo: the cloud itself, the area between SSA/SSB.

The script also provides indication of the crossings between Tenkan and Kijun, some trading strategies are based upon that. There is also a separate Kijun with its own period for those you'd like to have this information at another timeframe. I removed the third Kijun that was in version 5.1, I don't think it was widely used and made the configuration screen too crowded. If you really need this, take a look at Donchian indicators, the Kijun is basically a Donchian on 26 periods.

// Created By User ChrisMoody (CM)
// Tweaked by Albert Callisto (AC)
// Last Update 12 Jun 2016
// Version 5.2
// (AC - 5.2) Changed colors, fixed labels, fixed transparency. 
//            Removed the auxiliary II to speed up performance.
//            Fixed crossing detection (due to technical constraints, I can't still put them at the exact crossing location.)
// (AC - 5.1) Thinner default lines, changed colors
// (AC - 5.1) Added options to add two extra Kijun with their own periods, useful to check support.
// (AC - 5.1) Decreased height of arrows

Awesome chart. Is the crossing indicator in this chart?
yes it's part of the script.

Oh ok. They are the little circle dots when I click on the candles correct? How do I make them more visible if you dont mine me asking?
Not sure if we are refering to the same thing, by crossing indicator I meant the small filled black arrows when the Tenkan crosses the Kijun. You can change their size by modifying the two last lines of the script and replacing the "size.small" by "size.big" or something.
