AFL Explanation

The four primary elements of the Ichimoku Cronex Taichi indicator are Taichi, TaichiFor, Signal, and SSignal. They are calculated using the below formulas:

Ichimoku Cronex Taichi AFL 1

Taichi = weighted moving average of the TenkanSen, KijunSen, Span A, Span B values

TaichiFor = average of Span A and Span B

Signal = weighted moving average of Taichi with Kijun periods

SSignal = weighted moving average of Taichi with Senkou periods

Post calculation, these lines are plotted on a candlestick chart by using the standard Amibroker “plot” function.

The default setting for the Cronex Taichi is 9 for TenkanSen, 26 KijunSen, and 52 for Senkou Values These are parameterized in the AFL code using the “param” function and can be changed from the chart itself.
