What to Expect When You're Expecting (Fed Stimulus)

What to Expect When You're Expecting (Fed Stimulus)

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

With speculation and markets high on hope for additional support from the most effective of stimulus purveyors, volatility and trend development are looking like very conclusions for the FX and capital markets Wednesday. In today's video, we discuss the market's bearings heading into the event risk, the effectiveness of stimulus at the market and economic level, and the potential outcomes along with market impact.
