Talking Points:

The IMF downgraded its 2015 and 2016 global growth forecasts - with the US a notable exception

• Key event risk is ahead with BoE Minutes, the ECB decision and next week's Fed meeting

How far can this risk move run and what kind of market impact should we expect from the event risk on the docket? We discuss this and more in today's Trading Video.
