Talking Points:

Is AUDUSD a better fundamental trade opportunity than NZDJPY? To answer that question, we have to answer two important questions: what is the market's general level of risk appetite (an equilibrium between 'risk on' and 'risk off') and which set of currencies offer the better return potential. Many factors go into answering these two measurements, but the instruments for measuring it are always the same. We discuss this essential view of Forex trading exclusively in today's Forex Strategy Video.
