Forex: EURUSD, GBPUSD, AUDUSD Focus on Monetary Policy

Forex: EURUSD, GBPUSD, AUDUSD Focus on Monetary Policy

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• A recovery in Taper speculation helped leverage EURUSD, GBPUSD dips as their own policy catalyst cooled

• Key catalysts for the top monetary policy programs - Fed, ECB, BoE, BoJ - are due much later this week

• Monetary policy is still the most proactive theme, but the S&P 500 shows risk trends may swell

Is the Fed planning on an early Taper? Will the ECB announce a new stimulus program? Will the next RBA decision be a hike? These are the fundamental questions that are dominating the conversation in the FX market; and thereby relative monetary policy decisions is our primary fundamental drive. That said, we have to time the key developments for this speculation. The NFPs will be key for Fed speculation Friday. The ECB rate decision is top Euro fodder on Thursday. The RBA has given its policy weigh in this morning. And, in the meantime, the S&P 500 look dangerously close to forcing a break from tight congestion. We discuss these major fundamental themes and their impact on the FX market in today's Trading Video.
