Ichimoku Scanner Dashboard – Extras

This post contains the extra Metatrader 4 indicators for mql5.com Market product:

Ichimoku Scanner Dashboard

available here:


Additional indicators/template:

To use Ichimoku.tpl file, in Dashboard properties: “Use Template For New Window”: Ichimoku

NRTR For Chart:


Product Description:

Dashboard uses Ichimoku Strategy to find best trades.

Use this template: specify “Ichimoku” in Property: “Use Template For New Window”



Default strategy:


For BUY:

* If “Check Price Kumo Breakout” true and price above at least min distance from Kumo

* If “Check Tenkan Kijun Cross” true and Tenkan at least min distance above Kijun

Check all Tenkan/Kijun Filters in Filter 1 and Filter 2

* If “Check Chikou Cloud Distance” true and Chikou at least min distance away from Kumo

* If “Check Support/Resistance”: SR-SS uses SS_SupportResistance_v07.53.ex4 and price at least min distance away from Resistance

SR-NRTR uses NRTR_Rosh_v2eAlert_mtf.ex4 and price above blue Support

* If “Use Stochastic” true and price within safe Stochastic Overbought/Oversold

* If “Only when Overbought/Sold and back” true then also check if price was Oversold and back in previous bar.

* If “Use Awesome Oscillator” true then check Awesome is above and Green.

If all above conditions are met, you will get a BUY Signal. For SELL vice-versa

And while trend is good, it shows B-Zone/S-Zone.

Min Distance Calculation:

All Min Distance calculation is in points. Find the Min Distance using the crosshairs tool:

Here middle value 190 is distance in points.

So suppose you are using timeframes M15,M30,H1
And you keep “Min Price-Cloud Distance” values 40,80,160

Then it will check on M15 that price is at least 40 points above Kumo for Buy and 40 points below Kumo for Sell.
And for M30, it will check 80 points above/below and for H1 160 points above/below.

Same way you can set other Min Distances as 40,80,160 or whatever values you like based on the Min distance you prefer on that timeframe.

S/R Calculation:

It uses: “SS_SupportResistance_v07.53” indicator to calculate SR Lines. Available as extras in link above.

* If “Check Support/Resistance” true

For BUY Check price distance from Resistance. And for SELL check price distance from Support.

8 Using the “Min Distance From S/R” values:

If safe to trade, show a Green Tick in the BUY/SELL buttons. Else show a Red Cross.

So, if your timeframes are M5,M15,M30 and the “Min Distance From S/R” values are 10,20,30.

Then for BUY for M5, check if price is at least 10 points away from Resistance.

(e.g. for EURUSD if resistance is at 1.10050, then price should be at least below 1.10040).

* If “Only Alerts When Safe S/R” true get Alerts for only Safe trades.

Ignore alerts for other trades where price too close to Resistance (for BUY) or Support (for SELL)

(Note: Only alerts ignored. BUY/SELL buttons will still light up with green/red ticks)

For NRTR: For Buy price should be above blue support and For Sell price should be below red resistance. Min distances are not relevant here.

Higher Timeframe Alignment Check:

Force Align Check True: looks at higher timeframes to see if Trend is aligned with current timeframe’s trend or not.
E.g. if current TF is M30 and has a BUY Signal (price above Kumo and all other checks satisfied)
And “Number of higher TF Check for Trend Align” is 2, then it will check if H1 and H4 both also have price above Kumo (not necessarily Min Distance away).

HTF Alignment check only checks higher timeframes overall Trend direction. Meaning only if price above Kumo for BUY and below for SELL. And won’t look for other checks. Because otherwise signals will be too limited.

And it helps you trade only when higher timeframes are also in the same direction trend.


Comma-separated lists:

– Own Pairs List or Select pairs list from drop-down like “Forex Core 7”, “Forex Core 14”, etc.

– Time frames. Possible values: M1,M5,M15,M30,H1,H4,D1,W1,MN1

– Min Distances: 30,40,50

(Converted to points. Eg for H1 EURJPY: if kumo is at 116.800. And this value is 50. It will check if price is at least above 116.850)


– Settings for showing alerts: Popup, email, sound alerts, etc.

– x_axis, y_axis: to position Scanner Dashboard

– fontSize: resize whole panel and fonts. Use fontSize between 5 and 8.

– ColumnsNum: No of Dashboard Columns

– OnButtonClick Open New Window: On clicking any button open that Pair-TimeFrame in a new window with your template:

– Use Template for New Window: Template name without “.tpl”. Eg: Create a file Template1.tpl in templates folder and here specify: “Template1”.

(only works if previous property set to true). Does not work if on button click is set to open in current window.

– Shift: Bar for which all conditions are checked. Default 0 (current bar).

– Refresh After Ticks (if shift 0): For shift 0, wait for this number of ticks before refreshing everytime.

If using higher timeframes use a much higher number like 300 or 500.

– Use Heiken Ashi Price: If true Use Heiken-Ashi bar close price instead of actual bar close.

– Use Stochastic: If true use stochastic indicator to find good BUY/SELL.

If “Only when Overbought/Sold and back” true: Good BUY if Stochastic went Oversold below 80 and back. Good SELL if went OverBought and back.

– Min Price-Cloud Distance: Minimum distance between price and Kumo Cloud. 

– Max Tenkan Price Distance (comma separated): Maximum Distance in points between Tenkan and Price. If 0 then no check done.

– Tenkan and Kijun Filters with respect to Cloud:
    – Strong Signal: Above/Below: Above for BUY and Below for SELL.
    – Medium Signal: Above/Below Above or Inside for BUY and Below or Inside for SELL.
    – Weak Signal: Anywhere
    – With Price: Price Above/Below Tenkan Line or Kijun Line

– Check Tenkan Kijun Cross: true/false

– Min Tenkan Kijun Distance: If above true then check this Min distance between Tenkan and Kijun.

– Check Chikou Span: true/false

– Min Chikou Distance: If above true then check this Min distance between Chikou and Kumo or Chikou and Price.

– Alert On TK Cross: true: Alert when T & K cross and also show if cross happens above,below or inside Kumo.

For BUY TK Cross Strength:

   TK Cross Up: Above Kumo (Strong)

   TK Cross Up: Inside Kumo (Medium)

   TK Cross Up: Below Kumo (Weak)

Filter On: True means only show Alerts for Medium and Strong TK Cross. Ignore weak signals.

How to Trade:

Best way to use this indicator is with Support and Resistance or TDI Indicator. Or any other indicator which validates strong trend and price is not near an SR Zone.

In general, set Stop-Loss near the Blue Kijun Sen (Base Line). Or use NRTR Support/Resistance for StopLoss.

Set Take Profit near SR line. Or wait for Stochastic to show that signal is oversold/overbought and possibly reversing.

You can also use TK cross in opposite direction as a Closing Trade signal.

      These extras files are free for download.
      The paid system is on mql5.com Purchased section.

      I see in the messages that you got it installed. I’m glad 🙂

  2. John Brennan says:

    Have you tried this with Renko charts?

    • Abir says:

      Hi John,
      Sorry. Haven’t tried with Renko charts.
      Actually Ichimoku dash now has quite a few features and has started slowing down for too many pairs like 28-pair lists.
      So, I’m reluctant adding any new indicators to it.

  3. JohnB says:

    Thanks. This is only the first day of setting the panel up. So still learning how best to use it.

    • Abir says:

      Hope you enjoy using it 🙂
      If you ever need any help send me a PM on mql5.com site.
      I try and remain very active on that site.

  4. JohnB says:

    I would love to chat on MQL5 but for reasons yet to be explained to me, they have blocked me. I have repeatedly for their reason for this but they just refuse to reply to my messages. Which now means (I have told this) that I am unable to leave positive reviews.

  5. Richard says:

    Hi I just purchase your Ichimoku scanner from MQL5. I have hard time install. It give me a script error. Here is my order number: <deleted for privacy>.

    Can you help me to install

    Thank you

    • Abir says:

      Hi Richard,
      I just sent you an email.
      Can you please tell me the script error you are getting?
      Are you able to see it in your Purchased Section in Metatrader 4 app’s Market -> Purchased section?
      Send me a screenshot of the error in an email and I’ll do my best to help you.


  6. giaytekin says:

    Hi Abir,

    Is it possible to build one more check in it: Tenkan / Price max distance?
    That completes my strategy, the reason I am asking.


  7. Nagarajan says:

    Hello Abir,

    I would like to know, will the ichimuko scanner works for Indian NSE 500 and Futures stocks ?

  8. Abir says:

    Yes, the Ichimoku dash works on whichever charts your MT4 broker supports.
    It will load values for “Shift” bar. Which you can specify in Properties.

    For my other scanners like MA Confluence ProfitPercent with MaxPastBars…
    just make sure that the stock which you are using has at least those number of history bars downloaded.
    Or else dash might not function properly 🙂

    You can see in this image that AMAZON has 2048 bars downloaded. So only use less than 2048 Past Bars in dash:
