USD price action nevertheless faces considerable event risk that could catalyze market volatility in the days to come. This is apparent when taking a look at the DailyFX Economic Calendar as it details several high-impact data releases and scheduled events this week. The annual Jackson Hole Symposium coordinated by the Federal Reserve stands out in particular, which is set to stream online on this Thursday, August 27 and Friday, August 28.
