Trump’s twitterbombs: OPEC Pushes Forex USDCAD

November 20, 2018

On this week’s roundup of Donald Trump’s tweets, we look at a very important tweet that has a major impact on the oil markets and consequently the USDCAD.

For the past month, we have been seeing oil prices taking a tumble, ever since it reached a yearly high in early October. Being the world’s dominant economic power and one of the world’s largest oil exporters, the US has a great influence on the oil’s price movement. As usual, Donald Trump likes to share his input over twitter. Here is a tweet that has presented us with a great trading opportunity for the week ahead.

Be ready for the Trump effect



In this example, we witness a major bearish drop after Trump’s tweet on US OIL. The US OIL has been on uptrend hours prior to the tweet. However, Trump feels that the oil price is still rather steep given the supply in the global market. Thus, he tweeted out that the oil price “should be much lower based on supply!”

Traders can take advantage of such opportunities by having a good fundamental understanding of Trump’s tweet and the market that it may affect. In this scenario, it is clear that this tweet has a bearish bias on oil prices.

Trading USD: Crossing the line

A trader can take advantage of such trading opportunities by utilizing the Ichimoku Cloud to ride the momentum of such moves, along with playing a reversal using basic horizontal resistance. A trader can prepare to sell US Oil when the price reaches a previously support-turned-resistance, and also when the price has crossed below the Ichimoku cloud. To decide when to close off his position, a trader can wait for at least 5 bars to consecutively close above the Ichimoku cloud before closing off his position. Utilizing such a strategy would have bagged a good 107 pips profit from this setup already.
