This short post deals with a question I ask myself on the Kijun signal in my trading strategy. As you might have noticed recently, more and more of my entries have been taken without full signal from the Kijun Sen, ie not a full upward or downward slope. I have found this condition to be very limiting, meaning that very few trades satisfy this ‘slope’ condition, and usually when it does, price has already started heavily trending so I feel I have missed a good part of the momentum. This is why in quite a discretionary way I have sometimes excluded it from the entry signals. I will keep researching this, but your ideas are more than welcome.
