I have little trading experience (<6 months demo trading) and I have been trying to manually backtest an Ichimoku Trend Following Trading Strategy (from Trading with Ichimoku Clouds - Manesh Patel) on MT4 using the F12 shortcut.
The system has the following rules:
Price above Kumo Cloud;
Tenkan Sen greater than Kijun Sen;
Kumo Clous future should be Bullish;
Chikou Span showing bullish momentum;
Reverse for SHORT ENTRIES
The challenge I am having is how to use the Future Kumo rule without affecting the objectivity of the process.
Any input is welcome.
