Later the KOF Leading Indicator (SEP) is out of Switzerland at 7 AM which  is designed to predict the direction of the economy over the next 6 months.

USD Moving events this week: 

During the New York session on Wednesday the high-risk Durable Goods Orders  for August is scheduled to be out at 12:30 PM GMT, expected to have dropped to -1.0% from previous 4.4%. Because orders for goods have large sway over the actual production, this figure serves as an excellent forecast of U.S. output to come.

Later watch out for FOMC member speeches at the end of New York session. During the next day’s Asian session Japan will release their retail sales at 11:50 PM GMT to end the trading day.

Market Sentiment – AUDUSD Confirms Above Ichimoku

Market sentiment currently agrees with our bullish scenario. Looking to go against the crowd, the ratio of long to short positions in the AUDUSD stands at -1.42 as 41% of traders are long. That means the majority of the trading crowd on one of the largest forex brokers in the world are bearish on AUDUSD. Cue: bullish signal.

Trading Strategy – AUDUSD Confirms Above Ichimoku

Putting the technical, fundamental and sentimental points of the IDDA approach together, the medium-term bullish strategy seems to have a higher risk-reward ratio.

Bullish Scenario:

Depending on your risk tolerance, you can target 0.770 and 0.78 in extension.

Bearish Scenario:

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

Stay tuned for market updates and signals on that my fellow invest divas.
