Ichimoku Cloud Momentum & Trend Indicator «NoaTrader» for ThinkOrSwim


Moderator - Expert

Author Message:
If you like Ichimoku cloud and use it in your analysis, or you are new to it and sometimes gets tricky to figure out all the details, this indicator tries to simplify that and visualize the change of trend and momentum relative to the past based on ichimoku.
The RED/GREEN columns are showing momentum strength while the black diamond line suggests the trend change. The conditions are simple enough to check them out on the script.
As you can see highlighted cyan circles on the chart as major important signals on the chart of Bitcoin daily timeframe.
This script tries to be complementary to the ichimoku cloud itself and cannot replace the levels represented by the cloud on chart.
