Forex Forecast: What the Fed Decision Can Do for Volatility, Trend

Forex Forecast: What the Fed Decision Can Do for Volatility, Trend

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• The FOMC rate decision, BoJ policy meeting and UK inflation figures are top event risk this week

• December is the lowest turnover month of the calendar year, and this is the last full week of trade

• It's seasonality effect versus monetary policy moves for activity and trading opportunity

Chief Strategist John Kicklighter discusses the top Forex fundamental themes for the coming week of trading. These sessions are held live every Monday at 16:30 GMT. Will the Fed Taper before the end of the year; and if not, when? That is the market's number one market question this week. Yet, even if the central bank makes that critical first move, the market impact may not be as pivotal and dramatic as many suspect it will be. What should we watch out for, and how should we trade in this last full week of trading?
