USD/JPY Top Trade Potential with FOMC Rate Decision

USD/JPY Top Trade Potential with FOMC Rate Decision

The risk aversion scenario presents considerable volatility risk and a tremendous opportunity for dollar and yen based crosses. Alternatively, an USDollar Index on the verge of a critical breakdown and reversal shows there is just as much trade potential for the alternative outcome. We discuss this event and its market's implications in today's video.
