Remember the Big Picture Through Impending Volatility for Majors

Remember the Big Picture Through Impending Volatility for Majors

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• The calendar is loaded with events - FOMC, ECB stimulus, Scotland's referendum - that can roil the market

• Volatility will be a key force with the timing of important releases critical to gauging moves

• Through the drama, it will be important to keep watch on the most fundamental market themes

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

Whether you are trading EURUSD, an FX major, global equities or any market attuned to the sentiment in the financial system; the week ahead is critical. Volatility will certainly be a dominant feature of the landscape ahead with event risk like the FOMC rate decision Wednesday and the Scottish Referendum Thursday. However, the density of important updates and increasingly mercurial temperamant of the market can distract from the bigger picture. Substantial changes in monetary policy bearings, economic health and even global investor sentiment can result from what happens through this week. We talk event risk, timing and bigger trends in the weekend Trading Video.
