His pro-gun stance along with his campaigns to fight crime and corruption would put the US in the perfect position to help Brazil. This was reflected in the markets as seen in how the USD strengthened tremendously against the BRL, moments after Trump tweeted.

In the picture above, we can see how a trader can buy on the breakout above horizontal resistance, which coincides with the price breaking out of the Ichimoku cloud. From there, traders will likely hold position at least 5 bars and then close below the Ichimoku Cloud—a strong sign of an exhaustion or fading momentum.

Utilizing such a strategy, especially when coinciding with key announcements from Donald Trump, can lead to really handsome gains as seen in the 600 pips profit a trader would have bagged on USDBRL.
