MTF Ichimoku Analysis[tanayroy]

Ichimoku can state market conditions better than any indicator or group of indicators(My own perspective). Ichimoku works seamlessly in different timeframes. Analysis of Ichimoku in different timeframes can give you the bigger picture of the market.

This indicator analyzes six different timeframes with Ichimoku in depth. Default timeframes are 5M, 30M, 60M, D, W, and M. You can change the default timeframes from the setting.

As we are dealing with many relations, we can define the relationship with a simple score to get the trend strength.

Ichimoku Analysis:
Relationship of Price(P) with Ichimoku indicators: Here we are analyzing the current price and Ichimoku indicators. The position of price with respect to Ichimoku indicators states the market condition clearly.
  • Price(P) and Kumo(C): P > C = Bullish (↑). P < C = Bearish (↓). P <> C = consolidation or no trend(↔). Score: ±2

  • Price(P) and Tenkan Sen(T): P >= T = Bullish (↑). P < T = Bearish (↓). Score: ±0.5

  • Price(P) and Kijun Sen(K): P >= K = Bullish (↑). P < T = Bearish (↓). Score: ±0.5

  • Price(26 bars ago) and Chiku(L): L >= P(26) = Bullish (↑). L < P(26) = Bearish (↓). Score: ±0.5

Tenkan Sen and Kijun Sen Relation. Tenkan Sen depicts short-term trends and Kijun depicts mid-term trends. So this relationship is important for analyzing the current trend of the market.

Tenkan Sen(T) and Kijun Sen(K): T >= K = Bullish (↑). T < K = Bearish (↓). Score: ±2
Direction of Ichimoku indicators.
The direction of Ichimoku indicators helps us to understand the trend strength.
Tenkan Sen's(T) direction: Upward slope = Bullish (↑). Downward slope = Bearish (↓). Flat=consolidation or no trend(↔). Score: ±0.5

Kijun Sen's(K) direction: Upward slope = Bullish (↑). Downward slope = Bearish (↓). Flat=consolidation or no trend(↔). Score: ±0.5

Senkou A(A) direction: Upward slope = Bullish (↑). Downward slope = Bearish (↓). Flat=consolidation or no trend(↔). Score: ±0.5

Senkou B(A) direction: Upward slope = Bullish (↑). Downward slope = Bearish (↓). Flat=consolidation or no trend(↔). Score: ±0.5

Cloud and other Ichimoku indicators:
Kumo or Cloud is very important in the Ichimoku system. Analyzing its relation with other indicators is important to detect the overall market condition.
Kumo(C) and Tenkan Sen(T): T >= C = Bullish (↑). T < C = Bearish (↓). T <> C = consolidation or no trend(↔). Score: ±0.5

Kumo(C) and Kijun Sen(K): K >= C = Bullish (↑). K < C = Bearish (↓). K <> C = consolidation or no trend(↔). Score: ±0.5

Kumo(C) and Chiku(L): L >= C = Bullish (↑). L < C = Bearish (↓). L <> C = consolidation or no trend(↔). Score: ±0.5

Kumo(C) Shadow: By analyzing the last 252 bars(you can change this option) we are analyzing the Kumo shadow behind the current price. If Kumo shadow is present behind the price, trend strength will be weakened. Score: ±0.5

Kumo(C) Future (Senkou A(A) and Senkou B(B)): A >= B = Bullish (↑). A < B = Bearish (↓). Score: ±0.5
Chiku(L) Analysis:
Vertical and Horizontal Chiku analysis will tell us about the possible consolidation of the price.
Chiku Vertical: if the price consolidates for the next 5 bars(You can change this option) will it run into the price. Please remember we are placing the current price 26 bars ago and we are interested to see the current price in open space for a clear trend. Score: ±0.5

Chikou Horizontal: If Chiku is in open space (Not running into the price), we want to review Chiku vertically i.e how much percentage of fall or rise of the current price can cause Chiku to run into the price.
So, the maximum trend score is ±10.5.

Ichimoku signals:
We know, that the crossover of Ichimoku indicators provides important signals. In this section, you can see all the crossover i.e when they happened (Bars ago)

Distance between price and Tenkan Sen and Kijun Sen: We know, the price come back to Tenkan/Kijun if it goes far away from Tenkan/Kijun. So it is important to note the distance between Tenkan and Price.

Please note that this indicator is not a strategy or buy/sell signal. It just shows you the picture of Ichimoku in multiple timeframes. I am working on some strategies of Ichimoku and will publish the same when my research is complete.

If you want to analyze Ichimoku in a single timeframe, please review the following indicator.
