Category: Ichimoku weekly overview

"[...] But remember to come back in September!"

Well, a lot of people believe in seasonality and try to get their edge from that. However, I wouldn´t exacly call the few signals of last weeks an autumn rally- YET. Maybe next week.

As usual the "market 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.

Last two weeks triggered 8 signals in 4 different markets (out of 22 in the investment universe):

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. Work on the next version (that will be a maintenance release) is progressing nicely. In fact I started using a development snapshot of the upcoming v0.4.0 to do this weekly analysis/overview as this part is already stable enough. You can check out the development activities at gitlab: https://gitlab.com/werwurm/ichi_reloaded.However, there is no release date yet. It´s done when it´s done...

This week I´d like to start with the two currencies. Having the wisdom of hindsight, it´s now clear that the last two long signals in EUR/JPY were good ones- let´s hope the trend will continue. In EUR/USD last week´s two long signals still remain in the fog of war. It remains to be seen if the market will fall back into the sideways range or continue to climb. Both Kumo breakouts were caused by a falling thin kumo (and not by a large move that would be a bullish signal). Out of curiosity I did a rerun of below analysis, this time using my Kumo breakout filter (ICHI_KUMO_CONFIRM = true, as described in this blog posting), and that EUR/USD signal was filtered out (along with the Kumo breakouts of Sugar and WTI).
 
Indizes in the Eurozone had a strong upmove during last week, is that the first sign of my introductory quote or a bull trap? When connecting last week´s highs and lows, it looks like a nice downwards channel, but as always: can´t wait to be smarter in hindsight :)
Oh, for Gold I would now officially call last couple of weeks movement a sideways range. Nothing of interest for a trendfollower. Silver on the other hand is by Ichimoku definition deep in bear´s territory.
For the complete overview, look at last weeks analysis and compare to this week, for all markets in the investment universe (especially for an intermarket analysis), as usual: check the charts and tables below!
