The Ichimoku indicator was published in 1969 by a reporter, Ichimoku Kinkou Hyo, in Japan. This indicator is comprised of five lines called the Tenkan-sen, Kijun-sen, Senkou span A, Senkou span B and Chikou span. The green and red areas between the Senkou span A and Senkou span B are called Kumo or Cloud. A buy signal is generated when the price crosses from below to above the Ichimoku Cloud and the Tenkan-sen is above the Kijun-sen. When the price or the Tenkan-sen line crosses below the Kijun-sen line or the price crosses below the upper Cloud's edge, we want to take profits and exit our trade. In this backtest, we used the components of the Russell 1000 index as a stock universe. The 'ichi_pcac' term in the formula for opening a position means 'price crossed above cloud'.
