I have been looking at the Ichimoku cloud as a confirmation of trends and I find it quite useful as an extra - and very reassuring indicator. Would anyone like to help building an indicator?

Some basic, but sufficiently clear information can be found here:

http://www.fxwords.com/u/ichimoku-cloud.html

Formulas:

Tenkan Line; (highest high + lowest low)/2 calculated over last 9 periods.
Kijun Line; (highest high + lowest low)/2 calculated over last 26 periods.
Chikou Span; (most current closing price plotted 26 time periods back.
Senkou Span A; (Tenkan line + Kijun Line)/2 plotted 26 time periods ahead
Senkou Span B; (highest high + lowest low)/2 calculated over past 52 time periods, sent 26 periods ahead.

Then the different signals are in function of line cross-overs and relative positions of one line compared to another

It proved particularly useful yesterday in the minute chart of the S&P500 as you can see here:
