Ichimoku Kinko Hyo System Metatrader 4 Forex Robot

The Ichimoku Kinko Hyo System Metatrader 4 Forex Robot is an algorithmic trader that is based wholly on the popular Ichimoku Kinko Hyo trading system.

The EA utilizes a unique set of logic that takes advantage of the Chinkou Span intersection with the price bars to open positions.

In doing so, a long position is initiated when there’s an upward cross, while a short position is triggered when the intersection is downwards.

The forex robot algorithm confirms a long position when price trades above the Kumo, while the Chinkou Span stays above Kumo and the general Kumo size in pips must stay greater than the user input Kumo size limit.

For short positions, the reverse logic is applied.
