  • Tenkan Direction
  • Tenkan/Kijun Position
  • Tenkan/Kijun Cross
  • Price/Kijun Cross
  • Price/Cloud Position
  • Cloud Direction
  • Price leaves Cloud
  • Senkou A/B Cross
  • Senkou A/B Position
  • Chikou/Price Position

How Ichimoku Scanner works

For example, you have the following conditions in your trading strategy that you want to receive alert when that condition are met in H4 to D1 timeframes.

To buy:

  • Chikou Span line is above price line
  • Price is above ichimoku cloud
  • Tenkan crosses above Kijun

To Sell:

  • Chikou Span line is below price line
  • Price is below ichimoku cloud
  • Tenkan crosses below Kijun

Now you just need to:

  1. Choose H4,H6,H8,H12,D1 timeframes in the indicator parameters.
  2. Enable related conditions in the indicator parameters.

If all 3 conditions occur simultaneously for any of the timeframes, you will receive alerts.

You can reverse any of the conditions in the parameters, for example if you want tenkan crossing below kijun for buy (and tenkan crossing above kijun for sell) simply reverse the condition in the settings.


  • For all above conditions you can reverse the condition in indicators setting. For example when price goes above the cloud, with reversing the condition indicator gives sell alert instead of buy alert.
  • You can minimize the panel by selecting the exact timeframes that you want to show on the panel.
  • You can select/unselect the conditions and timeframes that you want to receive alert for them from the indicator settings and also directly from the panel.
  • In the scanner settings, there are different filters for optimizing the conditions to get the best alerts for your strategy.
  • There are a full set of parameters for customizing the appearance of the panel.
  • You don't need to set conditions to buy and sell separately, indicator automatically considers the opposite conditions for them.

Different Alert Types:

  • Show Pop Up Alert: Show alert window when scanner alert triggers.
  • Send Push Notification: Send push notification to mobile phone when scanner alert triggers. (You should set metatrader notifications options)
  • Send Email: Send email when scanner alert triggers. (You should set metatrader email options)
