Not hard to understand at all, and completely correct.
The system Alan is kindly sharing here, however, obviously isn’t really “scalping” at all. What it is, though is “very interesting”.
But I’m confused. The problem’s mine, Alan, not yours - I’ve managed to misunderstand what you’re saying, and your charts. So may I ask for clarification, please?
This part I think I understand completely, because the kumo is an area of indecision, and until the price emerges from it, it’s pretty hard to know whether to look for long or short entries. So you’re saying that you look for potential long entries when the price emerges above the kumo, and for potential short entries when it emerges below the cloud? That makes complete sense, of course, and is part of a standard way to use Ichimoku.
This part I don’t understand.
If the price emerges above the kumo, and is rising, then surely the PSAR dots are going to be below the price candles? So how is the price going to touch the PSAR?
Or are you saying that you wait until the price-direction changes and the PSAR dots jump up above the price candles, to trade a reversal (i.e. to enter a short trade when the price is above the kumo, perhaps on some kind of “mean-reversion” principle)?
Sorry if I’m being stupid, Alan - but I’ve obviously missed something fundamental, here.
