Video: Dollar Breaks Higher Ahead of NFPs, ECB Feeds EURUSD Tumble

Video: Dollar Breaks Higher Ahead of NFPs, ECB Feeds EURUSD Tumble

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• The ECB provides details on its QE program and the Euro drops across the board

• With NFPs ahead, the Dollar broke to an 11-year high and rallied against all the majors

• An effort to curb the NZ housing boom may translate into a Kiwi curb and AUDNZD reversal Want to test out all the premium tools and resources FXCM has to offer?

We are holding an Open House.

Usually, the markets steady ahead of major event risk. This week, however, it seems the tension is so great and trends so well established that breakouts and trend extension don't require confirmation. The EURUSD's drop to an 11-year low prior to the ECB's details on its new QE program this past session was extended its tumble to 1.10 after the event. And, with the NFPs dead ahead, USDollar broke out of a five-week congestion pattern to extend its record-breaking bull run. Do the scenarios for this event risk all inevitably end in Dollar strength? We focus on the Euro, Dollar, risk trends and the New Zealand Dollar in today's Trading Video.
