Didn't really cover trading with Ichimoku charts in any detail. The book was more about candlesticks and wave patterns. The wave patterns I found very subjective and of no use. You can learn as much about trading Ichimoku free on various websites.

I bought this book after being disappointed with Manesh Patel's book on the subject: Trading with Ichimoku Clouds: The Essential Guide to Ichimoku Kinko Hyo Technical Analysis (Wiley Trading). See my review there for an overview of Ichimoku Clouds.

Elliott's book is much better, but it is not for everyone. This book is written for a very specific audience -- professional technical analysts who want to understand what their Japanese competitors are doing. If that's your situation, this is the book for you; otherwise look elsewhere.

Because of the book's intended audience, it has almost no discussion of trading. It simply discusses the indicator and how a Japanese analyst would interpret it. If you work at the forex desk of a bank, this information will help. If you are the typical trader, it won't.

Regrettably, there are no truly outstanding English books on the subject. If you can read Japanese or work with someone who does, you should just get Hidenobu Sasaki's Ichimoku Kinko Studies (Toshi Raider Publishing 1996). Otherwise, as of 2010, this seems to be the best book on the subject available.

I'll provide a brief overview of the book's contents for those considering it:

After a brief historical overview in Chapter 1, the book spends Chapter 2 explaining how the charts are constructed. The information available on the internet is probably better, but one important difference this chapter brings out is that the Tenkan-sen and Kijun-sen lines are constructed as moving averages of daily midpoints (halfway between the daily high and low).

Where is Steve Nison when you need him??

Nicole Elliot's book on Ichimoku Charts (aka Cloud Charts) completely fails at methodically building up the reader's knowledge of the theory, practical application, and utility of each component of the chart. Without a thorough grounding in the building blocks of Cloud charts it becomes impossible to interpret these charts and extract their value.

I was drawn to Cloud charts because of my great desire to find a chart that would incorporate extremely powerful Japanese Candle Stick analysis, but also "supposedly" have built in moving averages and even make use of Fibonacci number sequences. The former combination seems like it would make for a robust technical tool if only it could be explained / decoded using a modicum of plain english.

As someone who developed a real passion for technical analysis from reading the extremely well written works of Steve Nison and John Murphy, Nicole Elliot's book completely fails to transmit any meaningful knowledge of Cloud charts to the reader.

I don't even think the books title is appropriate as one could get the same depth of Nicole Elliot's "introduction" or "pamphlet" on Ichimoku charts through a Google search of free articles on the web.

I still believe these charts hold real promise if the right author comes along to unlock their value for interested readers.

As per the other reviewers, I will echo that the introduction given here is very limited. While the information is consise, the reader is left wanting much more. The wave method as presented, is a bit of a rehash from other sources, not really a part of the Ichimoku Charts.

The only other book published on the subject is in Japanese, and is over 300 pages. Unfortunately, I am an English only person.

I think the book is a good introduction of the technical analysis using Ichimoku Kinko charts. Charts in colour are pretty good and clear. However I consider that it is just an introduction and not a profound analysis of this kind of study. What I consider more relevant and interesting in this book are the tips and explanation of the personal way the author analyse the markets. Her experience in the markets is of great value for any trader.
Anyway it is worthy reading this book since there is not enough material regarding Ichimoku.

Little info about Ichimoku, rather somewhat undigested ramblings about other technical indicatora that by and large have nothing to do with that system. A total loss. Poorly executed. The charts not even consistent in format. Sloppy work.

The concept is excellent. However the book lacks the analytical depth and detailing required of such a concept.

This is my first book on Ichimoku charts. Nicole always impressed me with her opinion. After reading I feel like she missed a lot of information that is somewhere between the lines. I believe she should add a lot more specific information on how and why she analyzes charts. It is good for the introductory information about Ichmoku charts.
