Forex: Prepare to Trade through NFPs, Rate Decisions and the G20

Talking Points:

• We face a week laden with event risk to sustain volatility and possibly revive trend

• Policy decisions, key data and stressed speculative positioning threaten to resuscitate risk trends

EURUSD, EURJPY and AUDUSD are just a few trade options with very different profiles

Summer trading has come to a close and next week will ensure an explosive transition to a new season. A loaded economic docket including events such as August NFPs, the G-20 Summit and range of rate decisions present the kind of sparks that can finally push the market to a common risk aversion theme. With the S&P 500 standing on the verge of a shift away from its four-year drive to record highs on unprecedented amounts of leverage and fading volume, the speculative crowd may very well define its own destiny. Yet, with catalysts along the way, the move is more likely to take traction and find acceleration. Looking for trade setups in such potential demands a closer inspection of the market's positioning, technicals and fundamentals. In the weekend video, we cover the major themes and discuss how different pairs (such as EURUSD vs AUDUSD) can respond differently to the trends ahead.
