The US liquidity drain is upon us; and with this major session's absence, there will be a sizable fire break in the 'risk' theme. Yet, this shift doesn't necessarily scuttle a wide range of trading opportunities. Much of the volatility and trend development we have found in the FX market over the past weeks and months have been founded on the basis of monetary policy rather than the elemental balance between yield appetite and haven demand.

We look at what lies ahead for event risk, volatility and trade potential in today's Trading Video.
