Crypto Trading with the Ichimoku Cloud Indicator System
In this video (below) I walk through how I use the Ichimoku system - both algorithmically and manually - for trading bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies on a day-to-day and week-to-week basis. The Ichimoku system is a quick way to assess the current trend of a market and assign probabilities to future movement to inform potential long and short positions.
FYI: this video is for information purposes only and not intended as financial advice.
After diving into a brief background and explanation of the system itself, I discuss a few key strategies for assigning probabilities to potential short-term and long-term outcomes. I reference Annie Duke’s book Thinking in Bets and Daniel Kahneman’s book Thinking, Fast and Slow for how to think about approaching trading in general and crypto trading in particular.
