According to this ebook by Akira Takahashi which cost $US0.99 on Amazon:
Ichimoku Thunder and Lightning Clouds was a concept of trading built by floor traders in Tokyo to teach new traders how to trade a fusion of price action and Ichimoku using not one cloud or kumo but two. Dive into this unique concept beyond the traditional Ichimoku standard.
Here are the settings for MT4:
- Fast Kumo = Lightning Kumo Cloud = (7,12,15)
- Slow Kumo = Thunder Kumo Cloud = (7,21,48)
On the TradingView platform, use:
- Fast Kumo = Lightning Kumo Cloud = (7,12,15,6)
- Slow Kumo = Thunder Kumo Cloud = (7,21,48,21)
If the prices are above both clouds, go LONG.
Vice versa for short.
If the prices are below both clouds, go SHORT.
