Chinkou Span line came to historical rice for possible breakout on D1 timeframe. But the price is located inside Ichimoku cloud/kumo with flat or ranging market condition for the few past days. Market Rally was started on Friday but on open bar onle, and the price is still inside kumo located below Sinkou Span A line which is the border of the cloud and virtual border between primary bearish and primary bullish market condition.

Breakout was already started on Friday on H4 timeframe but on open bar only as well. Besides the brose is on primary bearish lated below Ichimoku cloud.

W1 timeframe - flat within primary bullish since the December last year.

If the price will break upper border of the cloud (Sinkou Span A) together with Chinkou Span crossing the price on close bar, and if resistance level 1.6497 will be broken so we may see the reversal of the price from bearish to primary bullish.
If not so we may see the ranging market condition or flat within primary bearish.

  • Recommendation for short: n/a
  • Recommendation to go long: watch the price for breaking 1.6497 on D1 timeframe together with Chinkou Span line crossing the price on close bar for possible buy trade (not long term position)
  • Trading Summary: possible breakout may be started

Fed chair Janet Yellen promises 'continuity,' further stimuls reduction

U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen says that if the economy keeps improving, the U.S. central bank will take "further measured steps" to reduce the support it's providing through monthly bond purchases.

In her first public comments since taking over the top Fed job last week, Yellen said Tuesday that she expects a "great deal of continuity" with her predecessor, Ben Bernanke. She signalled that she supports his view that the economy is strengthening enough to withstand a pullback in stimulus but that interest rates should stay low to fuel further growth.
