Putting the technical, fundamental and sentimental points of the IDDA approach together, the medium-term bullish strategy could prevail.

Bullish Scenario:

Short Term: Target 78.55.

Medium term: Wait for a confirmation above 78.55. Then depending on your risk tolerance, you can target 81 or 85 in extension.

Bearish Scenario:

Only a break below the Ichimoku cloud would change our medium-term outlook back to bearish.
