The third week of 2018 continued the new year with 5 Signals in 4 different markets (out of 22 in the investment universe):

As usual the weather backcast contains the ichimoku analysis of 22 indices, futures and FOREX pairs. The linked charts contain all the details and neccessary context. Both charts and tables are generated automatically, at the moment the software is still work in progress. As such, I am not sure if it works 100% correctly, so if you see a mistake, would like to see an addition/change or simply give feedback: feel free to mail me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.Thanks a lot :)

If you would like to play around with the system that is used to generate the signals and charts on this blog, you can do so! The latest version of my software, ichinscratchy v0.3.0, was released in December 2017. It´s free & open source, you can find it under http://spare-time-trading.de/en/trading-system. You can check out the development activities at gitlab: https://gitlab.com/werwurm/ichi_reloaded.

All major indices and the Forex pairs (within the investment universe) are still trending up. However, a couple of markets stepped on the brake last week. If it is only a short correction or a longer sideways consolidation, we will see. However in my humble opinion this is very healthy and technically said markets are still within valid trends (just have a look at the tabular overview below). So this week it could be interesting to check the markets besides the big indices: see Cotton Future, Palladium and Sugar. All these three confirmed their trends and show pretty strong momentum. For all markets in the investment universe (especially for an intermarket analysis), check the charts and tables below!

If you downloaded my software and wonder about the system settings, a quick overview for the most relevant settings:

  • Ichimoku time period settings are standard (9,26,52), only strong signals are shown.
  • ICHI_CHIKOU_CONFIRM = true (Chikou Span is used as confirmation/ filter for trend).
  • ICHI_KUMO_CONFIRM = true (Kumo breakouts have to be higher/lower than last reaction high/low to be valid)
  • SIGNAL_REGIME_FILTER = none (all market regime filters are off)
  • SIGNAL_EXECUTION_PYRAMID = full (use every signal even if it is already in portfolio)

Below as mentioned the list with the evaluation of the status quo using Ichimoku. The tables also list the last three Strong Ichimoku Signals.

Wish you relaxing Trading!
