Ichimoku et al

I'm a big fan of Ichimoku and ChaosTrader's most excellent tutorials on YT


What is Ichimoku?

All respect to the originator, Goichi Hosoda (細田悟一 Hosoda Goichi)

The components:-
Tenkan-sen (転換) calculation: (highest high + lowest low)/2 for the last 9 periods.

Kijun-sen (基準) calculation: (highest high + lowest low)/2 for the past 26 periods.
Senkou (先行) span A calculation: (Tenkan-sen + kijun-sen)/2 plotted 26 periods ahead.
Senkou span B calculation: (highest high + lowest low)/2 calculated over the past 52 time periods and plotted 26 periods ahead.
Chikou (遅行) span calculation: today's closing price projected back 26 days on the chart.

Kumo (, cloud) is the space between senkou span A and B. The cloud edges identify current and potential future support and resistance points.

They say;-

"A service that monitors crypto markets and notifies you when a crypto asset gets unusual amount of market action."

Subscription = 20 USD/mo in $PING
charged daily, based on $PING price on exchanges, you can turn subscription on and off at any time

Sort of irritating in the free version.. imho, since you do not have the granualar control that is needed.
