The Return of the Taper, Volatility and US Dollar?

The Return of the Taper, Volatility and US Dollar?

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

The market had a chance to catch its breath these past few weeks as speculation and fear surrounding the Fed's first step back from stimulus subsided. That distinct sense of panic, however, will return this week. Reviving the fundamental contest between fear and greed, speculation surrounding the 'Taper' will be revived by a collection of the financial market's most influential event risk: US NFPs, GDP and a FOMC rate decision. There is no way to avoid resuscitating the stimulus debate. The question is whether the world's largest central bank is still on pace to start cutting off support in September as June's rate decision implied or if peak stimulus will be sustained further into the future. There are trades for both outcomes, and we discuss those setups along with this important fundamental clash in the weekend video.

Find out what event risk can threaten the trade setups talked about in today's video with the DailyFX Economic Calendar.
