EURUSD Confirms Below Ichimoku | Fundmanetnal Analysis
The US dollar had an impressive jump on Monday after the US presidential debate. Historically, the USD performs better under the Democratic party, however this year there is more at stake as the Republican part nominee’s economic policies pose tremendous threat to the US employment, GDP and trade. While the Republican nominee has created a scare tactics around the US to claim his position, historical charts show that the US is indeed doing pretty well. The key here is that American economy is changing from what it used to be.
For example, while manufacturing employment is diminishing, more and more people provide services.
With this and the sensitivity of the markets to pre-election polling, expect more volatility in the USD until November 8th, the election day in the US.
A Hillary win could also increase the possibility of a rate hike in December, which could extend the US dollar strength.
Keep in mind the the Euro is also correlated to the British Pound. With Brexit actions getting real and the GBP plummeting, we could expect Mr. Euro to follow this path as well.

EURUSD Confirms Below Ichimoku – Trading Strategy
With the new bearish sentiment, a bearish scenario is the winner for long term traders. However keep in mind that we could see a short-term correction as part of normal market cycle before we reach our bearish targets. As always, patience is a profitable virtue.
At this point, only a break back above the Ichimoku cloud would change our outlook back to bullish. Well, that, and a Trump presidency.
