Periods of alignment often produce decent trending markets off the longer time frame charts and more reliable 4hr chart-based TC signals. The elephant in the room though is next week’s FOMC as this news has the potential to undermine this alignment. Thus, I’ll be watching for any risk on shift but will remain cautious in the lead up to next week’s FOMC. For the time being though, during the late Asian session, I’m seeing Oil, the S&P500, A/U and A/J all tick higher.
NB: I’m am at a trading conference tomorrow (Saturday) and so my w/e updates will be more brief than usual and delayed.

EURX daily: above the daily Cloud which is bullish:
EURX 4hr: above the 4hr Cloud which is bullish:
Summary: the FX Indices are currently aligned for ‘risk on’ but traders need to exercise caution in case next week’s FOMC undermines this alignment.
