Diving Into the AFL of Ichimoku Cronex Taichi

Understand the core of the Ichimoku Cronex Taichi indicator: Taichi, TaichiFor, Signal, and SSignal, all defined through precise formulas:


Taichi is a weighted moving average, blending TenkanSen, KijunSen, Span A, and Span B.

TaichiFor averages out Span A and Span B.

Signal applies a weighted moving average to Taichi using Kijun periods.

SSignal calculates a weighted moving average of Taichi over Senkou periods.

These elements are graphically plotted in a candlestick chart using the “plot” function in Amibroker.


The Ichimoku Cronex Taichi’s default settings are TenkanSen at 9, KijunSen at 26, and Senkou at 52, but these can be adjusted in the AFL code using the “param” function for customized chart analysis.


It also includes calculated buy/sell signals for enhanced decision-making.
