    Hi. I am doing a back-testing for WMT using this script but I do not know if I missed something. I set the inputs 9/26/1/3/YES/Cloud Break. On 07/13/2020, I think it should show a bullish signal, but it is not showed on the chart. Any recommendations or suggestion on what could be happening is really appreciated. Thank you for your amazing work.

      The video explains exactly how to adjust all of the settings and how each of the settings impacts the signals it generates. There is no way I can explain things in any more detail here in the comments section of the video.

    Is it possible to send SMS alert using a custom study on a Renko chart? I see the Study Alert and have followed through it using your video (very good) above and other resources. I have set my TOS to have email and phone number confirmed. But when I try and create an alert using the Study Alert, I do not have a Renko chart option. Closest I get is a bar chart but no Renko. Is there a work around?

    • Pete Hahn Post author

      There is no work around. Char studies are not able to send sms/email/push notifications and the only tool on Thinkorswim that supports Renko bars are the charts.

    Hi Pete. My sincerest appreciation for all the outstanding work you have shared with the community! I reviewed all the videos regarding the Ichimoku charts over the weekend. In terms of the study settings, I am having problems finding where I can change the inputs for the SpanA within the study. I see the plots for SpanA can be modified easily but according to Senters (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9CJOlYRnz0) at 7:33, we should also focus on the Cloud extended period (Span A?) based on the time horizon we will be using. Welcome any clarity regarding this question. Thanks again!

      If you are talking about the section of the cloud that extends 26 bars to the right of the last bar on the chart…. That is controlled by the “kijun period” input. However I do not believe that Hubert ever recommended adjusting this parameter because it will impact everything on the Ichimoku chart. It is an integral metric that is used to compute almost everything else in the Ichimoku. Go back and watch that section of the video again. Hubert was taking about how the time frame selected for the chart impacts the length of time you can expect to be in a trade. There was no implication whatsoever that the cloud should be adjusted.

    Hi Pete,

    Very informative website!

    I am trying to use Chart_Alert_Ichimoku to buy and sell when Chikou crosses Kijun (downward direction). How do I identify when Chikou is crossing Kijun using this alert or additional code update?

    Hope you can help me.

    Thanks,

    Vik

    Goodmorning Jeff,

    First of all thank you for all the help, your videos are awesome.

    Understand the video instructions perfectly, only one question. Any way to put my entire watch list on here for text alerts when my study triggers?

    Thank you.

  • Josh Stadler

    So in order to receive text alerts for any forex pair or stock or anything I need to make a simple last price based alert then a long and short alert for each pair or stock?

    Hi Pete, Thanks for the video. The link to the STUDY file on the video did not work for me. Clicking just pauses or plays the video on my browser. Could you send me a link to download the file?
