Fundamental Forecast: Dollar, Euro and Pound Look Not to Equities but Rates

By , Chief Currency Strategist
24 June 2014 01:03 GMT

Talking Points:

• A return of volatility is inevitable - either destructive (crisis) or constructive (higher yields)

• Interest rate speculation is guiding the markets for now with the FOMC generating limited surprise

• The pound will be a focus this week as BoE officials speak on monetary policy and financial stability

Chief Strategist John Kicklighter discusses the top Forex fundamental themes for the coming week of trading. These sessions are held live every Monday at 16:30 GMT. A cleansing deleveraging move would be a health development for the financial markets, but complacency and desperation (for return) are proving difficult habits to break. As investors await a definitive move on the rebalancing between yield and volatility (risk vs reward), rate forecasts continue to play an active role in FX developments. The Fed, Bank of England and European Central Bank are currently the most prolific and dynamic market movers amongst the majors.
