Talking Points:

• Monetary policy event risk stirred some volatility amongst the Pound, Dollar and Euro pairs

What kind of Trading best suits you? Technical or Fundamental? Short-term or Long-term? Take our Trader Survey and find out.

Against a backdrop of extreme and suspect complacency, short-term swings from GBPUSD, EURUSD and USDJPY were generated through monetary policy speculation. The swings from these majors were substantial in this quiet market, but the big breakouts and trend developments were saved for the more significant developments. Ahead, the docket will offer a global update on timely economic activity measures. With the market weighing conviction in a BoE hike, certainty of ECB stimulus and reservations about Fed ambitions; this data will feed an active fundamental theme. Given the correct sentiment, it could also catalyze extreme volatility. We discuss this market backdrop and trading landscape in today's Trading Video.
