To calculate the Ichimoku Cloud in Perl, you will need to perform a series of calculations using the high, low, and close prices of a financial instrument over a specific period of time. The Ichimoku Cloud is typically made up of five lines:

  1. Tenkan-sen (Conversion Line): (9-period high + 9-period low) / 2
  2. Kijun-sen (Base Line): (26-period high + 26-period low) / 2
  3. Senkou Span A (Leading Span A): (Tenkan-sen + Kijun-sen) / 2, plotted 26 periods ahead
  4. Senkou Span B (Leading Span B): (52-period high + 52-period low) / 2, plotted 26 periods ahead
  5. Chikou Span (Lagging Span): Close price plotted 26 periods in the past

# Number of periods for calculation

my @chikou_span = ();
for (my $i = $period * 2; $i < scalar(@close); $i++) {
    push @chikou_span, $close[$i - $period * 2];

# Output results
print "Tenkan-sen: @tenkan_sen

print "Kijun-sen: @kijun_sen

This is a basic example and may need to be adjusted based on your specific requirements or the data provided. Additionally, it's important to note that the Ichimoku Cloud is a complex indicator that requires careful analysis and interpretation.
