Taper Speculation, Event Risk Offer AUD/USD, GBP/USD and USD/JPY Trades

Taper Speculation, Event Risk Offer AUD/USD, GBP/USD and USD/JPY Trades

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Fed Chairman Bernanke managed to avoid setting off a heavy dollar or S&P 500 selloff this past week - leaving the market increasingly vulnerable to volatility-inducing fundamental rebalancing moving forward.

In this weekend video, we discuss the conditions and triggers for the Taper-Risk connection; key event risk to monitor; and trade setups for AUDUSD, EURUSD, USDJPY and GBPUSD.
