When Ichimoku Kumo (Cloud) is thick and is uptrend, it in theory may post as good support for a retracing price. This is the case for NQ on 11/9/16. What we see today strong uptrend of NQ after retracement, from 21/9-23/9, seems like a bull, but dont forget 9/9-10/9, market seems to be falling off the cliff. I would thought its the start of downfall of NQ, but I was wrong. The clue provided was VSA, Harmonic, Kumo, BB supports during this seemingly downfall days.
Thus do not underestimate a thick Kumo.
