Kijun Line

The mid-point between the highest high and lowest low of a particular security. The kijun line, also called kijun-sen, is the base line used specifically in ichimoku kinko hyo (or ichimoku cloud) candlestick charts. It is one of two moving average lines displayed in the chart, and is a 26-period moving average. (The other line, tenkan-sen, is a nine-period moving average.)

When reading ichimoku kinko hyo, investors should note that the kijun line lags behind the tenkan-sen, and trails price less sensitively because it covers a longer period of time. When tenkan-sen crosses and moves above the kijun line, this is generally considered a bullish signal.
