Forex Trading Video: What Would Trigger a EURUSD, USDJPY, S&P 500 Reversal?

Talking Points:

• Volatility this past week has revived traders' interest / fear in risk trends and rate forecasts

• The S&P 500 touched a record high last week, but doubt in its conviction is palpable

• For the FX market, monetary policy is playing a more immediate role for USD, JPY, AUD and others 2:30 PM

Market conditions change, and our strategy should reflect those changes. We have coded the DailyFX-Plus strategies for Breakout, Range and Momentum to adapt to these market shifts.

Speculative positioning in the FX market follows risk appetite and monetary policy expectations...and both are gaining traction. The dollar was perhaps the most prominent performer this past week when the Fed affirmed it was set on its path to end stimulus and transition into rate hikes in the not-too-distant future. This change has drawn greater attention to the policies from global central banks - who seem to be universally rolling back the safety net - and offering better contrast between vital rate forecast. Should risk collapse under its own weight, which capital flows will pick up? If sentiment is steady, which currencies will benefit from those seeking future returns? We look at this big picture consideration and its very timely opportunities in the weekend Trading Video.
