DEFINITION of '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.

INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Kijun Line'

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.
