Nech0701, sorry for the late response, but I am not getting any e-mail alerts. If a moderator is reading this thread, I’m hoping he can tell me what is going on.
Your question answers the exactly why I do not use just one TF. I posted a chart of the daily which gives a better answer of future price direction. The 4-hour is basically in a state of equilibrium, and for the reasons you stated. When markets are in this state, they present no trading opportunities. Also, trading opportunities are present when there is a confluence of indications, and the nice thing about the ichimoku is that it being a 5-in-1 indicator makes it confluential.
A look at the daily shows the pair has already been in a downtrend. There is no sign of a reversal in momentum. It hit the kijun, which means that circa area is a sign of a reversal. Additional confirmation is produced when the candles finally break under the 4-hour cloud.
Another thing about ichimoku is that it is a trend indicator. When it shows the market as sideways, stay out.
